It's Complicated, the new boomer romantic comedy from director Nancy Meyers, follows the problematic love life of Jane (Meryl Streep).

While in New York for her son's college graduation, she and ex-husband Jake (Alec Baldwin) celebrate a little too much and end up in bed together, despite the fact that Jake is married to his former mistress (Lake Bell).

Meanwhile, Jane, who owns a popular bakery, wants to upgrade her fantastic kitchen into a phenomenal one and enlists the help of fellow divorcee Adam (Steve Martin), who develops more than a little crush on the dynamic chef.

While describing the plotline may be a challenge, enjoying the film is anything but. The light and breezy story seamlessly shuttles Jane back and forth between the two possible romances, both of which seem potentially perfect for her.

The story also gets bonus points for not engaging in too many cheesy rom-com cliches while still keeping the laughs coming. By the time Baldwin shows up in his birthday suit (still funny, despite its appearance in the film's trailers), you'll be shocked that this film manages to keep getting funnier.

Meyers - whose previous credits include Something's Gotta Give and the good, but flawed, The Holiday - has a pretty solid record of creating amusing, innocuous rom-coms that don't pander to the audience, and It's Complicated is no exception. The film's not anything groundbreaking, but it's a pleasant two-hour escape.
