A 37-year-old woman (Uma Thurman) who's just been divorced after a nine year marriage, takes the advice of her therapist (Meryl Streep) and starts dating again. When she meets a man who's a decade younger, she shares the intimate details of their relationship with her therapist, while neither of the women is initially aware that the young man is actually the therapist's 23-year-old son. When they do, both women must deal with issues of trust and ethics. Also with Bryan Greenberg, Jon Abrahams and Jerry Adler. Directed by Ben Younger. [1:46]

 A woman talks in graphic detail about the sexual relationship she is having with a younger man: she says, "we have had sex on every surface of my apartment," she describes a part of the young man's anatomy and she talks about him not knowing where a part of her anatomy was but that she showed him.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
