Did You Know?


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


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.

Don't read all these bad reviews. Watch the movie instead.
21 November 2017 | by Frederic LarsenSee all my reviews

This collection of bad reviews needs an enema! Well, truthfully, this site needs a forum, but enough about that.

If you tell me this isn't the most memorable movie in the world, I believe you. If you tell me it doesn't deserve an Oscar, I believe you. But what it does deserve, is respect.

There seems to be a lot of potential in Hallie Meyers-Shyer, writer and director of this movie. With some time and maturity I believe she can become a new Nora Ephron of our time.

Also, I love Jon Rudnitsky in this movie. I'm not too familiar with his works, but he truly stands out in this one. I hope to see him in more movies in the future.

If you want to know why you shouldn't watch this movie, read another review. If you need to know what it's about, read another review. There are plenty of them in here.

You should watch this movie on a Wednesday with your wife/husband/partner/whatever - or watch it alone. Someone in here wrote that you shouldn't watch this if you're home sick and it happens to play on TV. Trust me, if you're home sick and this happens to play on TV. Watch it.

The movie touches upon some familiar - but important - themes, such as the value of friendship, family and love. Also the importance of forgiveness, and not least the importance of prioritizing our children.

To sum it up, keep up the good work, Ms Hallie Meyers-Shyer and Mr Rudnitsky.
