Fresh: Meryl Streep is terrific. She will be again the darling of the award show season.
- Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Monday, August 10, 2009
Rotten: If it weren't for the sheer brilliance of Streep and on-screen husband Stanley Tucci, this would be an easy skip.
- Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies, Monday, August 10, 2009
Fresh: Sometimes a meal can be less than perfect but still so thoroughly enjoyable that a missed ingredient here or a bit of overcooking there doesn't really matter.

Turned out to be an okay film. A little upset with the ending but that is because I have a deep desire to know what happened after. There had to something that happened after to get the true happy ending, right? : )
