Reese Witherspoon Is Back Doing Rom-Com In 'Home Again'

And the rest of us should stay at home.

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.  (**)
