Home Again

Reese Witherspoon is a single mum in Los Angeles whose life takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her.

Recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three aspiring filmmakers who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand.

It seems more than a trifle obnoxious to tell a story that unfolds in a bubble of Hollywood privilege and to present it as if it were something that everyone could relate to.

A diverting social comedy with a hint of depth from debut director Meyers-Shyer, with Witherspoon on top form.

It's too superficial to maintain tension as a character-driven drama, and not funny enough to overcome an aimless plot and confused tone.

For her directorial debut, "Home Again," Hallie Meyers-Shyer, Nancy Meyers's daughter, has made a shabby copy of a Nancy Meyers romantic comedy.

It's very silly but very watchable; you'd have to be very puritan to take exception.

Even Reese Witherspoon at her winsome best struggles to lift this muddled, middling comedy above par.

This world doesn't quite exist, but it's an exceedingly pleasant place to escape to for a couple hours. Meyers-Shyer may have gotten it from her mama, but the point of view is all hers.

So thoroughly sanitised that it's essentially wiped of personality.

Throws so much charm and wit at you that you get lost in its relationships and utterly lovable characters.
