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.
