Review: While We're Young


3 and 1/2 stars

Mini Review:

Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts make new friends and discover... Stop reading reviews. Book those tickets now!

Main Review:

You are asking me why I've still given this delightful movie only 3 and 1/2 stars in spite of saying 'Buy Tickets' three times without saying much about the movie?

Well, it is a movie that you need to watch to feel - either like Ben and Naomi or their new friends - that's highest accolade, considering how superficial and vague most 'gentle', 'non action' movies are. This one slowly winds its way around your heart until you remember the taste of the mescalene and you begin to anticipate the effects...

This movie will remind you of the feel of the crochet throw on the couch, smell the coffee they drink, thirst for the bottle of bourbon Ben Stiller steals at the Lincoln Center, make your muscles ache after the hip-hop class...

Have you bought the tickets yet? No? Aah... You are waiting to know why there are stars missing from the rating?

Well, it's not perfect because you can see the plot a mile away. The story is predictable as the taste of peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The pleasure is when you discover banana slices when you bite into the sandwich.

It's a movie that will make you want to go kiss someone you love and it will feel like you're kissing them for the first time. 

It is delightful. Watch it. No matter what your age is.
