Directed and co-written by Bill Holderman, Book Club is a comedy about four women whose lives are forever changed after reading 50 Shades of Grey.

Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen star…

I’m often drawn to stories of friendships between women in later life, especially if comedy is involved. My fingers are crossed that I’ll enjoy this close to as much as I do Grace & Frankie.

Andy Garcia, Craig T. Nelson, Don Johnson, Alicia Silverstone and Richard Dreyfuss also star.

Book Club Release Dates: May 18th, 2018 (US); June 1st, 2018 (UK)…

HOME AGAIN (2017): It’s…

Home Again is a comedy / romance that’s written and directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer; daughter of popular romantic comedy filmmaker Nancy Meyers (It’s Complicated (2009), Something’s Gotta Give (2003), The Holiday (2006), etc).

The reason I was drawn to this film is simple, Reese Witherspoon and the chance to see her in a fun-(ish) movie. By the end of Meyers-Shyer’s story about an LA single mother, whose life takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her, I was left wanting. I found myself feeling as though absolutely nothing had happened in the movie, even though I’d just sat and watched it for 1.5 hours. 

I promise that I’m not deliberately trying to sound like a stereotypically male film fan who doesn’t like romantic comedies because ‘nothing happens.’ in them. There’s just very little that’s memorable or particularly noteworthy to report. I definitely did not love this movie. I also wouldn’t say I hate it. I simply wish it were better.

If I tried to think especially hard about what’s good about Home Again, I’d say that I enjoyed looking at all the footage of sunny LA. Especially since at time of writing, I’m personally in the midst of an annoyingly grey winter. I was also inspired by the positive attitude of Witherspoon’s character’s love interest.

Last but not least, I didn’t completely dislike some of the sweet and touching moments in this film. After all, what kind of person hates a sweet touching moment?

All in all, Home Again is quite forgettable. Perhaps watch it if I’ve somehow sold it to you – which I doubt.
