Same-but-different trailer for ‘It’s Complicated’

Posted by · 4:28 am · November 6th, 2009

Handily coinciding with its two male stars’ big news this week, the second trailer for Nancy Meyers’ romcom mostly overlaps with the first, with a few added flourishes.

Despite having never liked a Meyers confection before, something about this one is working for me. Steve Pond has a mole who says the film is “absolutely terrific,” though of course that means little. Either way, mature audiences are going to turn out in droves for this.

    it will be a solid hit. And it will be the confirmation that Streep is the most bankable female actor right now.

    It’ll also be far too long. Even her most accomplished films (the ones that hover slightly above mediocrity) are too long and unfocused.

    It is worrying to admit that the best film she has directed is The Parent Trap – the acme of Lindsay Lohan’s career.

    I don’t get to say this very often but that’s a very sexy 60 year old woman!

    Here’s to Alec Baldwin and his affable charm-may it make him a sizable amount of money in the weeks to come. Same for Meryl and Co., but Nancy Meyers could go broke for all I care.

    I really feel that all the host thing of Baldwin and Martin, is because this movie is getting some oscar potential, specially for Streep and Baldwin, and is not coincidence that Meryl Streep is a little bit weak in the oscar race lately with Julia & Julie, and is getting more atention with this movie, that is so diferent of the rest of the potential oscar contenders, with all the drama and tragedy. It´s so great look a hot funny chick on her 60’s, and Meryl winning her third oscar for a role so diferent of her Sophie’s Choice, and so diferent of the traditional line of this Academy Awards.
    Is just my opinion, what do you think people, i like to hear you ?

    Leonardo – I would love it if this had Oscar potential, but I don’t feel like it does. Maybe I’m wrong.

    On a side note – Alec Baldwin nudity towards the end..actually made me jump. Was not expecting that.

    Meryl’s winning this third Oscar this year. She’s overdue and they know it. Nobody else is overdue. It won’t be Kate’s year or Susan’s year. It’s Meryl’s year. They’ll make Carey wait a bit.

    Thanks to Alec Baldwin, this film looks decidedly better than the horror that was “The Holiday.” The man can do no wrong these days. It’s past time that he have a major film and, since he’s proven to be one of the great comedic actors around, this should be it.

    Sorry, I don’t share the same kind of love as others here about Streep. Maybe it’s not fair to judge by the clip, but she – and maybe even Martin – appear to have given in to Meyers’ cutesy direction. Thrilled to see Mary Kay Place in a supporting role – she’s understands the power of subtlety in comedy.

    As for Streep being overdue, how about Julianne Moore? I realize I’m virtually alone in this, but she’s not the only actress over 50 who can play these roles. Sadly, she’s the only one who can sell them. Thank God for cable TV – otherwise, would anyone be hiring Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Holly Hunter? It’s truly tragic how great actresses of an age continue to see work evaporate. Most of Michelle Pfeiffer’s films are going straight to DVD and Cable (Lifetime, for gawd’s sake!). It breaks my heart.

    Most critics called Streep’s role a supporting one in Julie & Julia…maybe she should lobby and go for a double nomination. Heck, if she had lobbied for her Prada role to be a supporting one (which it was) she’d already have a third Oscar.

    Sosgemini I think you are mistaken on both counts. Most critics call Streep the co-lead in J&J, and no one was getting around Jennifer Hudson for the Oscar that year.
