Home Again


Rated PG-13 · 97 minutes · 2017

Hallie Meyers-Shyer—who grew up on the sets of her moviemaker mom, Nancy Meyers (The Intern, Something's Gotta Give)—makes her writing and directing debut with this cloying romantic comedy about a lonely mother of two in LA. Depressed over her failed marriage and 40th birthday, the heroine (Reese Witherspoon) meets an amorous 27-year-old filmmaker (Pico Alexander, miscast) and his two partners (Nat Wolff, Jon Rudnitsky), who so charm her mother (Candice Bergen) that she invites them to move into the daughter's guest house. Witherspoon lacks the abandon the May-December love angle requires, and the movie is so tidily formulaic that it feels as if it's been airbrushed; the send-up of Hollywood falls flat too.
