Storyline

Alice (Reese Witherspoon), a recently separated mother of two, finds her life upended when three young, charismatic filmmakers move into her guest house. But her unlikely new family and a budding romance come to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. A story of love, friendship, and the families we create, "Home Again" is a modern romantic comedy with one very big life lesson: starting over is not for beginners. Written by StarLight73521

Quotes

Alice: But, you know, God, you make a decision about your life when you're 25 years old and then you fast forward 15 years later and you think, God, was that really the life decision that's, like, a good life decision for the rest of your life? Then you're just, like, "I don't know."

Missed opportunity
14 June 2020 | by Aaron-James2See all my reviews

This would have been the perfect vehicle for Witherspoon to show some skin and light up the screen. She has a beau, several men in her house, an ex-husband and is completely available and nubile. Flaunt your body, make men happy! Do we get that? Nothing. Instead, they keep talking and talking and driving the kids around.
