Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's really not all that complicated. But it is entertaining. It's pure, simple fun, with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin playing Doris Day and Rock Hudson as they might have been if they had ruled in the sexually knowing oughts, instead of the virginal ear"
‑ Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com
"Writer-director Meyers, who's devoted much of her career to midlife American arousal, that she loses her sense of fun."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"Pointlessly conveys throughout how important sex is in a relationship."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"While it may be complicated for the characters, it's a simple formula for light movie entertainment."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"an occasionally pleasant misfire, a romantic comedy that, despite its bright premise and superlative cast, isn't as smart as it should be."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Streep is as enjoyable as ever, and if laughs count for anything, this is one of the better romantic comedies of the season."
‑ Anna Smith, Time Out
"Simply put, It's Complicated is a hoot."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"The only thing complicated about Nancy Meyers' latest rom-com is its depiction of familial relationships. Why do Meryl Streep's adult children keep on cuddling and squeezing one another?"
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"A charming cast of veteran pros are at the top of their comic game."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The Oscar talk surrounding It's Complicated is some way off, it's not a bad film, but it's certainly nothing to get excited about."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"[Meyers has] given us her thinnest slice of comic relationship angst yet, proving, I guess, that you actually can be too thin."
‑ Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"Streep's dilemma is handled well enough for the movie to accumulate some gravitas as it nears the two-hour mark."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Alec Baldwin does the near impossible: he steals a Meryl Streep film from Meryl Streep."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Yes, there still are movies made for grown-ups in Hollywood, few and far between they may be."
‑ Sean Axmaker, MSN.com
