Somehow, the imagery avoids that situational silliness found in movies like this. Far be it for me to say, but Streep is good. I know -- obvious -- but can you imagine what this poster and still would look like with another actor?
Director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley and Me, The Big Year) has a way with this kind of character piece. He instills back and forth exchanges with a comedic thread and tension.
Should do well both at the box office and as a rental/TV night.
Even the tagline is good: Sometimes to keep the magic, you need to learn a few tricks.
