Home Again (PG)
Starring Reese Witherspoon, Candice Bergen
Directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer
Reese Witherspoon stars as Alice, a just-turned-40, recently-separated mother of two, who hooks up with Harry (Pico Alexander), a dreamy 20-something struggling filmmaker.
When Harry and his showbiz-pursuing buds need a place to crash, the motherly cougar lets them stay at her posh Airbnb-ready LA pad.
This pleasant, if a tad inoffensive and obvious, rom-com by first-time writer-director Hallie Meyers-Shyer, the daughter of Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give), is a great date flick... if this were 1998 (or 2005).
In 2017, however, it feels like a feature cobbled together from a short-lived family sitcom. Either that, or an Airbnb corporate video. (**)
