It's complicated

A few weeks ago I finally got around to watching this film which was, if I remember right, fairly succesful in cinemas. It´s about a woman (Meryl Streep) which starts having an affair with her ex-husband (Alec Baldwin) again while dating her archtitect (Steve Martin). It all gets complicated (who would have thought that after reading the title!?) and in the end the ex stays away and she starts a relationship with the architect...
As you can probably tell already, I wasn´t impressed with that. The film is more or less boring. They all live in such beautiful houses, have beautiful businesses and Meryl Streep is presented as the perfect woman - it´s dull. And to see Steve Martin in a non-funny role is utterly confusing (one of my favourite films of all times in "The Out-of-towners" with him being hilarious).
So all in all it´s not a bad film, especially not if you are a huge Meryl Streep fan, but nothing I would consider watching again.
