I rented this movie first On Demand after a horrible work day. I just felt I needed something to help me relax. And this movie delivered exactly what I needed. I loved it. After watching this movie, all of the bad from my day was gone. It definitely is one of the best feel good movies I have ever watched. The characters were so real and relatable. The story, to me, was perfect. It had just the right amount of romance, and humor. Reece Witherspoon was great in this. The 3 guys that play Harry, George, and Teddy were wonderful and I just wanted to hug them all. This movie just really depicts <more>
real life situations that can happen and it does it wonderfully. It is a movie about starting over, and it hits the nail on the head. I've been through a very similar situation personally and I could totally relate to this movie. After seeing it On Demand, I went and bought the DVD and have watched it another 6 times. I may need to buy another copy, because I think I will wear the first one out. Anyone who gives this movie a low rating, just doesn't get it. I personally loved the movie and I would recommend it to anyone. It is definitely in my list of favorites. I applaud everyone in it and associated with it and say job well done.
I left after seeing Home Again feeling soooooo good and that is what a good movie is supposed to do, make you feel good. Home Again is well acted, Nat Wolff is my new favorite actor, he really shines in this movie as well as Pico Alexander. Reese Witherspoon is amazing in this movie too! I just loved everything about this movie and I found myself not wanting it to end. It's really great to see Candice Bergen again too. I did not like the character of Austen played by Michael Sheen and it's not because of Michael the actor, who is a great actor by the way, it's just that I was <more>
rooting for the other guy. The kids in the movie did a great job with their roles too. Do not listen to the negative reviews, if you want a feel good movie and you want to be fully engaged in great entertainment see Home Again. The writing, directing and acting was all great.
It's so nice to to see a movie that is well written and refreshingly has no violence, gratuitous sex, or crude humor. Really a wonderful movie on so many levels.
Fun and enjoyable. Lighthearted and warm. (by Kaleecee)
I always love Reese in anything, even though this was a little smarmy. Beacause Reese was in this it gave this movie something worthy to watch. I am glad I did. I like a good fun movie in the afternoon. I laughed, I cried, I liked it a lot. The three young men are charming, handsome and sexy in their own way. Nothing my hubby would watch, but I am allowed some fun for me. Yay! Now if I can just find another charming movie to see on my free afternoon.
Feel good comedy that's been missing (by happyecd13)
I loved this movie. Mainly for the fact that I got to leave the theater smiling and having that warm, lovely glow that you feel after seeing a happy movie. I miss this genre. It was sweet and a bit decadent with the yummy younger co stars and for a while I got to imagine, "What if?" It's not going to win any major awards for thought provoking themes, but it will play for years on TBS or whichever channel plays rom coms on the weekend and ladies will tune in and enjoy it for the feel good movie it is.
loved it (by monalisa62003)
well i loved it. one of my fave movies that i will likely end up watching again. i loved all the characters, they were all well acted and interesting, each had their own interesting story and it blended well with everyone. even Austin who was my least fave was still likable. it wasn't as predictable as i thought it'd be either, i thought she'd get back with Austin for the kids sake so i wasn't expecting a divorce. i loved the chemistry between Reese and Pico just not the close up snogging scenes the kids were cute too. there were some funny parts the only thing i didn't <more>
like was the idea a bloke could cure anxiety issues, that's not sending out a great message for those who don't look as pretty as Reese. the ending just sort of threw me and i was a bit confused as it didn't wrap up the story lines. it annoys me when films do that
I was drawn to watch this movie as soon as I learned that it was written and directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer, her parents wrote Baby Boom, Father of the Bride Part I and II and numerous other movies I have enjoyed in the past. I am someone who loves a light hearted romantic comedy or family movie and there haven't been many of these in the past decade so I thought I would check this out. I have to say I went in with no expectations and I was pleasantly surprised. It is a light, sweet, heart warming movie, it has the look and feel of some of the old 90's movies in my opinion credit to <more>
Cinematographer Dean Cundey, Back to the Future, Apollo 13 , and a nice story. The romance factor isn't really the central focus of the movie and it may give you an inspiring thought to do a kind deed for a friend or a child. If you want a movie you can escape a bit with, light, have a few laughs and walk out of with a little bit of heart warming feel, go see it. I know a lot of folk may not like this, if you prefer dark, edgy movies, or high action, crude comedies, or tragic stories etc this is not what you are looking for. There is no strong political message or underdog defying huge odds or anything to that effect. This isn't a movie that needs to be deeply analyzed, it's just a simple nice story and maybe it will put a smile on your face at the end like myself. If any of this sounds like it appeals to you please go see this movie. I hope it does well for the main fact that then possibly we may not have to wait another ten years for a movie like this to be made. We may not be the majority but I'm sure there still is an audience for these types of movies.
Home Again is the new Nancy Meyers produced Reese Witherspoon movie. It centers around Witherspoon's character, Alice. Alice is a single mother with two daughters who has separated from her husband and has moved back to California. She invites three young struggling male filmmakers to stay in her guesthouse, since they, at that time, have nowhere else to go. Alice gets romantically involved with one of those three men and then things get a bit complicated. Also, her husband she is separated from decides to pay a visit and things get even more complicated. I absolutely adore Nancy Meyers! <more>
She is one of the best in the industry in my opinion. So, I thought it was a pretty safe bet to say that I was going to have a positive reaction to this movie. Turns out, that was a safe bet, because I enjoyed home again very much. If you like romantic comedies, you'll love it. If you like sentimental dramas, then you will definitely enjoy it. And if you like the stars, then there's a good chance you'll like it too. The writing is good and the dialogue is very well written, this movie is all about the characters, and the writing enhances the connections between them. 8/10 for Home Again, it's a worthwhile sweet movie to enjoy if you're in the right mood for this kind of film.
I like a movie with heart. It's nice not to see a movie without adults in costumes, violence and all the other negative aspects of life. It's a feel good movie with likeable characters. It is what it is. It was better than some Oscar nominated farces I've seen in the past. By the end of the movie it evoked a sense of what life among family and friends should be.
