It's the equation of son arriving on screen, elevates the self-mocked script into an unexpected territory that is straight out fired bullet.

Tracy Letts as her husband is bland - not much personality portrayed and frustrated with many aspects of his lover.

I expected better - but still enjoyable .

Indie comedy is simplistic but entertaining.

This movie starts out slow.

It has the confusing French ending.

The couple actually seem quite compatible and happy and successful and care for each other and as mundane normal as film can make a person.

That said, this is a solid and enjoyable independent film.

Too Contrived .

A visit by their college student son Joel (Tyler Ross) seems as if it will provide the catalyst for a split, but then the unexpected happens: Mary and Michael fall back in love...

Funny and unexpected .

Enjoyable romantic comedy for adults .

Her boring unattractive husband's lover is a ballet teacher.

The movie is entertaining and well-made on all fronts.

Nonetheless, the film is good fun, was enjoyable to watch once and I shall probably watch it again.

Slow paced and disappointing.

This is easily the worst movie I have seen in years.

Worse than a waste of time .

It's really hard to identify with these characters who have a great life, a great home in the LA suburbs, two good jobs, a great kid, and such empty lives.

The characters were insipid, totally uninteresting, and not believable.

The LoversThe Lovers is a character driven romantic drama whose quirky perspective and the lens through which it views monogamy, is thoroughly entertaining.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

" Alice MunroRare it is to see a romantic comedy about middle-aged couples whose marriage breakup is so realistically painful that I found myself fidgeting out of discomfort at the very-human acts.

The son was too intense and one dimensional.

Boring .

The way the film progresses in unexpected ways and it never feels forced or contrived.

Really boring to the point of ff through much of it.

all I can say is, as predictable as it was given the foregoing plot, oi vey is mere.

The first half hour is excruciatingly slow, with hardly anything at all happening.

Now this last one, the pinnacle, poises him on the edge of greatness.

First it was excruciatingly slow, then it finished with a big dose of pretentiousness .

This is a slow, boring, depressing mess.
