Storyline

Josh Srebnick is 44. He is married to Cornelia, 43, the daughter of Leslie Breitbart, a respected documentary filmmaker. The couple lives comfortably in New York Village and gives the image of happiness.But things are not so rosy as they look : on a personal level, their relationships have been cooling down while they suffer from not having children. On a professional plane, things have deteriorated as well. Josh, who is also a documentarian like his father-in-law, has lost inspiration: he has been grappling with his last movie for eight years now without being able to complete it. To be true, Josh goes nowhere and his marriage is on the rocks. Things start changing when Josh and Cornelia meet another married pair : Jamie and Darby, a generation younger, express their admiration for Josh (Jamie wishing to become a documentary filmmaker himself). Plus, they are much cooler, smarter and more uninhibited than the two forty-odds. Could they help Josh and Cornelia to revive their couple? ... Written by Guy Bellinger

The script felt so rigid to be called a comedy and so not intriguing to be called a Drama,, kinda expected much from such cast..
19 June 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

Gosh it went a full on talk and talk until the last 20 minutes where Josh finds the whole plot Jamie was sewing and things got really a bit interesting and intriguing .. The plot is nice , the idea is okay for a movie a middle age couple being affected by a hipster cooler one kinda stole my interest when i watched the trailer other that seeing "Ben Stiller" in it,, The script though felt so rigid and not quite easy to understand what's the story is truly about a happy ending presented in the last five minutes just popped like that ... i think it needs a deep thinkers to get what's really going on in here. The comedy was so wiped out by the drama , a couple of scenes where i was about to giggle but it went in,, the drama was just not that catchy ,, like i would watch the movie over three days pausing it in any minute.

As for the cast; well Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver and i really expected A lot from such amazing cast but i believe with such screenplay they couldn't patch the holes that the movie slow and not quite appealing.

Overall, the movie didn't leave any remarkable effect on me, i would ever think of watching it again and sure i wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
