This film could be pleasant enough if you completely turn your brain off while watching it and are just looking for something bland and undemanding but cozy to watch. The film feels completely contrived and artificial. None of the characters spoke or behaved like real people. The movie was trying way too hard to be charming and breezy but the characters are pretty fake and hollow and it's impossible to care about any of them. Reese Witherspoon, a fortyish recently single mom, comes home again to L.A. after her marriage fizzles. Luckily for her, she has her father's huge, gorgeous, perfect, empty, house just waiting for her! How convenient! If you are in the mood for something completely undemanding with pretty people flitting through attractive sets, this movie may be pleasant enough, but if you want something with any actual substance it may prove a disappointment.

Alice Kinney and her husband are recently separated, so she decides to move to Los Angeles along with her two daughters. While celebrating her birthday on a night out, she meets Harry, a young filmmaker who begins to sweep her off of her feet. Well, until her ex-husband shows up. The movie is a combination of comedy, drama, and romance, with a fairly unique plot (as far as romantic comedies go) and likable enough characters. The movie stays on the surface level of emotion at all times, which is fine if you are just bored and looking for something to watch. I would rate this movie 3/5 stars.

Entertaining. Light, fun movie.

So-so movie. Reese does a good job, and two of the three boys are okay as well. But the third boy (Harry's brother?) character was never developed except that he becomes an actor at the end. The ending was totally lame and feels like they ran out of money to finish the movie: a dinner scene with all the characters, all smiling at each other; but nothing resolved and no indications on what happens next. Okay to see if you need something light and silly.

"Overall, Home Again is a cute romantic comedy. Don’t expect a ton out of it because it’s not going to surprise you or anything but it’s sweet. The actors do great in their roles, their characters are all likable, and the movie is pretty harmless. I do think the story is really weak and I think the movie would have benefitted from following Harry, George and Teddy instead of Alice, but it works fine here too. Also, there isn’t any conflict even though they try to create some. It’s fine..."

I love this movie! From the storyline, directing, costumes and location. Great actors with a great script, it truly is wonderful. As a bonus, written, directed, and produced by women. The U. S. needs more of this, it just shows you what can be done.

Nothing life changing about this film, but Reese Witherspoon just shines on camera. The cast is likeable and beautiful. Just a light film.

Upbeat film set in LA that shows a woman rebuilding her life after separation/pending divorce. She's well-off, so there's nothing especially challenging although it's a nice touch for her to suddenly acquire a support system in the form of three young aspiring film-makers, one of whom pursues her romantically (reverse of the traditional May-December duo). Candice Bergen makes a cameo performance and Lake Bell is hilarious as the narcissistic homemaker. If you're looking for a lightweight enjoyable film, this is an easy evening choice.

Entertaining film, worth the time to see. Reese Witherspoon's still got it. I found myself pulling for each of the characters throughout the entire experience. Fun storyline with good ending.

An okay movie. It had a decent storyline with good actors but it's not a movie which I would watch again.
