It would be hard not to adore any movie that puts Streep at the glowing center of a love triangle, but It's Complicated has more than just good taste in women. It hits wry, wistful notes about what-ifs and roads not taken, while also paying homage to classic screwball comedies (especially The Philadelphia Story ). The sight gags include Office cutie John Krasinski (as Jane's future son-in-law) looking fine in a set of ladies' pajamas (festooned with lipstick kisses, no less—thank you, costume department!) and a 21st-century version of the spicy love letter and the racy Polaroid: naked Skyping.
