    It's Complicated

    ★★★

    Either through Meyers' direction or by Martin's lack of enthusiasm, he gives his worst performance in this movie. It really bummed me out watching him. Every scene he's in is dead on arrival, except when they're high, which brings me to my next point...

    ★½

    The real miracle is this movie’s ability to turn Hanks’ natural charisma and likability into dour  drudgery and detached exposition.

    The same goes for Audrey Tautou, but at least Hanks gets to know everything. She only gets to be led by the arm through the plot, having things explained to her, sometimes by multiple men at the same time.

    There is no excuse for this runtime whatsoever!

    Ian McKellen is the only one having fun in this and, as a…
