Home Again offers several small revelations, some so sneaky that you may not notice the movie has thwarted every expectation of its genre save one. All romantic comedies, at some point, spin a crisis of time management; it’s one of the few ways in which they’re like actual romances. Meyers-Shyer twice forces characters to choose between conflicting obligations — one more career-boosting round of drinks with a producer, or a bougie soirée with the new lover? Home Again offers several small revelations, some so sneaky that you may not notice the movie has thwarted every expectation of its genre save one. All romantic comedies, at some point, spin a crisis of time management; it’s one of the few ways in which they’re like actual romances. Meyers-Shyer twice forces characters to choose between conflicting obligations — one more career-boosting round of drinks with a producer, or a bougie soirée with the new lover? It’s entirely understandable that the young man picks the former, and it’s just as understandable that Alice blows up at him. But then, unlike so many characters in less thoughtful rom-coms, she quickly gets over it and gets on with her life. Alice has no time for bullshit, just as Reese Witherspoon has none for roles that are beneath her. Home Again lets both reach for more.It’s entirely understandable that the young man picks the former, and it’s just as understandable that Alice blows up at him.
