HOME AGAIN

HOME AGAIN movie poster

Janet's TAKE: #HomeAgainMovie is a predictable rom/com with a touch of "Entourage" thrown in. C+

Reese Witherspoon heads the cast of this "girls night out" entry. While the movie has its share of
drama, only a few laughs are thrown in. Reese handles this sit-comish role with ease. Handsome lads and cute kids are added to the mix, but at times this feels uncomfortable.

Synopsis:
HOME AGAIN stars Reese Witherspoon ("Big Little Lies," Wild, Walk The Line, Sweet Home Alabama) 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. - Open Road Films
