Then, I suddenly thought to myself - why don't I just go on my own? Now, this is probably hard to believe, but I have never, ever, been to the cinema on my own before!
And guess what - I had a ball! I bought myself a bag of popcorn, and I laughed and cried my way through the whole film. It is incredibly funny. The plot is basically about Jane Adler (played by Meryl Streep), a 60 year old mother of 3, who gets back with Jake (her ex) (played by Alec Baldwin) for a while. Jane is a baker and caterer with a successful business in Santa Barbara. Jake has remarried, so here is Jane, having an affair with her divorced husband. Jake wants them to get back together for good, but Jane thinks better of it, but the experience helps her to decide once and for all that it really is time to move on. She also dates someone else in the film. But I will say no more, other than to highly recommend it.
Also, here is a good review of the film by Philip French in the Sunday Observer of 10th January 2010.
