    And I was so excited about this movie! In a few days it will be in our theatres, too. From trailers, it seems like a charming film. And when I saw Nancy Meyers’s name there, I was thrilled. Since I mostly agree with your opinion, I’m slightly disappointed now. 🙂 Although Reese isn’t one of my favorite actresses, I loved her in “Walk the Line”, then “Water for Elephants”, and “How Do You Know”, but that’s maybe because of James L. Brooks, and the fact that I adore his work. Even that movie wasn’t so great. Well, I’ll give this one a chance. I especially agree on what you said in the last sentence.They make SO many forgettable movies nowdays. And nice writting from you, as usual.

      Thanks so much! I had similar feelings to you leading into the film. Sweet romantic comedies are very pleasant, but Home Again just fell flat.

    I prefer Witherspoon’s older films, such as the Man in the Moon, Jack the Bear, Pleasantville, and even her supporting role in Wildflower. She was great in Little Big Lies. This Means War and Hot Pursuit are awful films, and with the exception of Legally Blonde I’ve haven’t enjoyed her romantic comedies, too cheesy. She’s a very capable actress, but I think lately she’s been choosing roles in bad comedy and romance films.

      I have a soft spot for some of her romantic comedies, but I totally hear you on that one. I loved her in Wild which was a nice dramatic turn for her. I want her to go more dramatic like what Steve Carell has been doing lately but manage to keep her quirky sensibilities.

      • TheWarner says:

        Steve Carell is amazing. Little Miss Sunshine, Dan in Real Life, and Crazy, Stupid, Love really showcased his skills as an actor.

        I’m really looking forward to Battle of the Sexes. Could be a great merging of his comedic and dramatic chops!
