A movie directed by Ben Younger

Bolstered by an appealing cast and the comedic genius of Meryl Streep,Primeis an above-average "rom-com" that never stoops to compromise. The plot conceived by writer/director Ben Younger (Boiler Room) is a bit far-fetched, but once he's … see full wiki

Surprisingly good comedy about Uma Thurman who is seeing a psychologist (Meryl Streep) because of a recent divorce.  When she is not working, Streep has the role of the stereotypical Jewish mother who frets over her son.  One day she meets a much younger man, David 23.  She starts talking to Streep about David but tells him he is 27.  The audience realizes that David is in fact Streep's son but Streep has no way of knowing.  Thurman asks her if she should really consider …

Pros: Uma’s performance     Cons: Byran Greenberg’s understated performance.     The Bottom Line: In the end Prime is about that one would except from this sort of light romantic comedy: a predictable, somewhat clichéd but entertaining movie.      Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.

If I didn't know better I would say this is an infomercial for all Jewish mothers who are really concerned that their sons marry nice Jewish girls, have Jewish kids....well you get the idea.    Although this film is promoted for its sophisticated storyline, Meryl Streep adds the only charisma and sophistication to the entire film. Streep definitely outshines Uma Thurman and Bryan Greenberg in this film. In fact, she is the only person carrying it. Her acting is superb as always, …

PRIME is one of those films that perhaps viewing the DVD comments by the cast and crew first before watching the film would enhance the appreciation. This is a solid little work by writer/director Ben Younger who has created a story, somewhat autobiographical, and engaged the interest and devotion of some very fine actors to bring off this simple but very honest view of love and its permutations.    Rafi (Uma Thurman) is a recently divorced, successful fashion worker (she sets …

Pros: Streep was deadpan funny     Cons: overall, not much to offer     The Bottom Line: "It's the prime of life,   where the spirit grows   And the mirror   shows both ways"    Neil Young     It has been years since I’ve attended an actual movie [We Were Soldiers] so I was actually looking forward to seeing a movie on the night it opened. In fact, I guess you could say I was prime for a new movie, …
