Storyline

Alice (Reese Witherspoon), a recently separated mother of two, finds her life upended when three young, charismatic filmmakers move into her guest house. But her unlikely new family and a budding romance come to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. A story of love, friendship, and the families we create, "Home Again" is a modern romantic comedy with one very big life lesson: starting over is not for beginners. Written by StarLight73521

Trivia

Alice's (Reese Witherspoon's) house was formerly the home of Cindy Crawford and, before that, Stephen J. Friedman. See more »

Goofs

When Alice first meets Zoey, as Zoey is walking into the house she specifically tells Alice to take off her shoes before entering the house as it is a "big thing" that no one wears shoes in the house. The very next time Zoey and Alice are inside Zoey's house and Zoey is clearly wearing shoes (though Alice is barefoot) as she is insisting that Alice babysit her daughter while she goes out.

Quotes

Alice: But, you know, God, you make a decision about your life when you're 25 years old and then you fast forward 15 years later and you think, God, was that really the life decision that's, like, a good life decision for the rest of your life? Then you're just, like, "I don't know."

Disagree with the haters
11 August 2018 | by joaquin-07176See all my reviews

I like a movie with heart. It's nice not to see a movie without adults in costumes, violence and all the other negative aspects of life. It's a feel good movie with likeable characters. It is what it is. It was better than some Oscar nominated farces I've seen in the past. By the end of the movie it evoked a sense of what life among family and friends should be.
