A different subject in an otherwise typical
Nancy Meyers film. Bland, likable, pleasantly entertaining, everything softly-lit. Enviable, catalogue-curated interiors.
DeNiro does a lovely job in a role that he could probably do in his sleep. Not sure why Hathaway’s character is constantly described as “not easy” and “tough” when she was just a competent but inexperienced business woman who gets occasionally stressed and cries a lot. Had to roll my eyes when Nicholson was given as an example of the type of old school man that’s missing today. Who can forget when his character was chosen over Keanu Reeves’ character in Something’s Gotta Give?
The heist was cute. Some of the jokes have not aged well. That handkerchief line was so corny.
