A 37-year-old woman (Uma Thurman) who's just been divorced after a nine year marriage, takes the advice of her therapist (Meryl Streep) and starts dating again.

When they do, both women must deal with issues of trust and ethics. Also with Bryan Greenberg, Jon Abrahams and Jerry Adler. Directed by Ben Younger. [1:46]

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.
We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.
Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
