Home Again (2017) S: Reese Witherspoon





Quote:
HOME AGAIN stars Reese Witherspoon as Alice Kinney in a modern romantic comedy. 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. HOME AGAIN is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5719700/

Opens 9/8/17.

The ads for this one are a jumbled mess. "Reese Witherspoon, and here are 5 guys and Shirley Schmidt."

I've seen the trailer atleast half a dozen times in the theatre and I still don't understand why the three guys are living with her.

I'm interested in seeing this. It's directed by Nancy Meyers' daughter. I wonder if she'll be as good as her mom.

Yeah same here. The trailer is confusing. One guy is her lover and the others I have no clue. Like Reese, but I want to read some reviews about this.

I'll definitely rent it when it's out because of Reese. But no way I'm seeing this in the theatres (unless the lady requests).

Damn, when I saw the title I immediately thought of a Home Alone sequel with Macaulay Culkin as the father.

Or with Reese, a sequel to Sweet Home Alabama.

I love Reese and Michael but this looks like shit.

And this? Never happens in real life.

Are you probably going to catch a matinee because the director is easy on the eyes? Otherwise, each of those sentences is its own paragraph, why!

This got the most middling review in the paper I've read in a while. It wanted to give props that the twist of the man trying to be sweet to the kids at a crucial moment instead of focusing on the woman is nice, but it couldn't quite say that, either.

I saw her promoting it on Late Night/DayTime shows this week and she couldn't explain with a straight face what the movie was about. This looks like a total dud.

Re: Home Again (2017) S: Reese Witherspoon

Wife and I saw it yesterday and it was enjoyable. It wasnt your typical romantic comedy. Reese is still great, and the 3 guys were cool, not douchebags like you would expect.
