Synopsis

After thirty years of marriage to Tommy Lee Jones' golf-obsessed grump, frustrated wife Meryl Streep persuades him to reluctantly join her for a week-long counselling session from Steve Carell's relationship guru. Home truths - mainly sexual ones - are voiced (TLJ fancies a threesome) and it looks like the straight-talking therapy may be wrecking rather than rescuing the marriage. The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel has crafted a waspishly wise and funny comedy with Jones and Streep convincing as a couple so deeply in a rut they've lost touch with each other.
