Goofs

Two issues about the Croque Monsieur that Jane has prepared for Adam and her. She takes the food from the oven and serves it. A little time passes while they chat and eat and Jane removes pan no. 2 of the Croque Monsieur without a sign that she'd made two batches. When Jake arrives and sees that Jane has company, he sneaks up the driveway and watches them through the window. Later, he tells Jane that Adam must be interested in her. He noticed Adam watching her butt while she took the food from the oven. HOWEVER, Jane has removed the food from the oven before Jake arrived. By the way, Meryl Streep has a very strange way of scooping the Croque Monsieur (glorified sandwiches) from the pan. It occurs to me that she accidentally uses some of Julia Child's mannerisms in the kitchen since she worked on both movies on 2009. See more »

Quotes

Jane: Don't you ever eat at your house?
Jake: Pedro dictates most meals and he has a very... limited palate.

Wonderful Romantic Comedy, Best in Years
2 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Almost a ten for me. 53 year old male who prefers romantic comedy to action-adventure. This film had a wit and a appreciate of today's woman that made the film very slice of life for me. Beautiful scenes, hilarious wit and almost slapstick. This film is not for the prudish but is by no means obscene. Just great adult fare and Meryl Streep can now do anything. This year she has been Julia Child, Mamma Mia and now the Other Woman. I'd want her back too. Bravo, Nancy, Bravo.

I have never enjoyed Alec Baldwin, but he was light and funny in this film and the pairing really worked. Steve Martin's role was purposely a little flat but he did underplay things well.

John Krasinski is a true scene-stealer. Like Streep, with just a knowing glance or a facial expression, he causes laughs and audiences will just enjoy him.

Best romantic comedy since Something's Gotta Give. Baldwin is no Nicholson, but this was a better script and Streep has no match.
