    Thought about it. But after I read the reviews on http://www.pluggedinonline.com/ (an entertainment review webpage from a Christian perspective), I decided against. There have been several movies I have decided against seeing after I consulted this page. It does look funny-but too many negatives kept me away.

    My wife and I saw it, and we laughed all the way through it. I think that anyone who's a newlywed (and even some oldy-wed's) can relate to it.

    I don't think single folks will find ti as funny. Jane Fonda did a great job at comedy. While I can poke and prod her politics, there's no denying she's still a good actor. J Lo, too, holds her own well. The chemistry between the two of them in the movie is great.

    There's a casual, but not excessive amount, of profanity, and the only sexual content is via implication (there are no graphic sexual situations).

    It's a romantic comedy suitable for adults, best relating to newlyweds. Despite a mild amount of crude content, it's still worth viewing. I wouldn't take young 'uns. Inappropriate language and subject matter for tiny ears. Older teens might be okay, but I think they will find the subject matter boring, choosing instead to laugh at the onscreen catfights. Make this a date-night flick.

    I saw it and thought it was funny. Jane Fonda was hilarious. So out of her character. What a neurotic!

    I wouldn't go see it because of J. Lo's use of fur in her clothing line.

    :confused: I guess you'll never be seen in public with my 71 years old mother. She has two coats that have fur collars.
