LOL, not your everyday housewife per Glen Campbell's old 1968 hit "She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles that weren't there yesterday ..." A fun sexy film on the midlife crisis of well to do and idle LA women, particularly this lady (Kathryn Hahn.) Filmed in LA: tony Silver Lake neighborhood and Sam's Hofbrau Strip Club, The sessions with the psychologist (Jane Lynch) are hilarious.

The story is interesting and the cast is great. You just wonder why anybody would bring a stranger like this into your home. Bored housewife I guess. There is something very genuine and likable about Katherine Hahn and a mysterious corrupted innocence about Juno Temple.

I don't think this movie was meant as a comedy, just that the main character has a quick-wit. I did enjoy watching this as I wanted to see what would happen with McKenna in the end - and in the end she pretty much did what I thought was going to happen with someone else and not Rachel's husband - which is what I thought was going to happen. And no open eyed is slightly creepy.

Uhm...this was not funny, it was depressing. And the main character is a horrible person. They did a great job telling the story - the actors are all wonderful, but this was not enjoyable to watch at all.

pretty funny overall, but there is a serious story inside of the funny. Kathryn Hahn is great and I give it 4 stars for her alone, I didn't think that everything that happened was her fault, sometimes marriages go stale because you don't communicate your feelings enough, goes both ways.

How can I complain? Women in Darfur, you know, walk 14 miles to get water,

When you bite down on a piece of jello, you're not expecting a nut.
