OK for kids 14+
Graceful, teen-friendly romcom about love later in life.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Enough Said follows the burgeoning relationship between a masseuse named Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Albert (James Gandolfini, in one of his final screen roles), who turns out to be the ex of a new client (Catherine Keener). While the movie is most likely to appeal to adults given the themes and stars, the content is generally teen friendly. There's some social drinking by adults, a bit of swearing (including one "f--k," plus "s--t," "crap," etc.), bare shoulders/backs seen during massage sessions, teens' discussion of losing their virginity -- and plenty of very realistic discussions about relationships.
- Families can talk about the appeal of romantic comedies. How is Enough Said different from other romcoms you've seen? How is it similar?
- Who do you think this movie is most intended to appeal to? How can you tell?
- What do you think about the budding relationship between Eva and Albert? Do they seem like real people? How does Marianne's description of Albert differ from reality? How is it similar?

Date Night by marcricco1830
Me and my wife enjoyed this movie. It's a good wholesome tail. it's a clean movie that a lot of older people are facing, I Think many will relate to it. I wouldn't take young kids to it not because of the content, there is no action or thrills about this movie it's not going to keep you on the edge of your seat, it's not boring at all it flows right along.
Worth It by kmlop2
If you are not into self reflection and introspection then don't go to see this movie.
What you will get out of this movie, if you give it a chance, is a quick look at how humans interact based on their relationships with family, friends and total strangers. Enough Said drills down to the heart of getting older and dealing with the impending empty nest and what comes next, especially if you are single. This is a movie about 'real' life and it can be very relatable at times especially when all that is on the boob toob are faux reality shows.
A good cliche of never judge a book by its cover.
Enough Said! by abqovertons
Unless a guy is a Gandolfini fan he's probably not going to be crazy about this film, but no one can say it less than good. I can see Gandolfini receiving this script, reading it and saying "Oh HELL yeah!" He's the full opposite of his role in Sopranos, and someone you want to meet as soon as you leave the theater. Only twice in the movie did I think, OMG, he's not with us anymore? I felt like I's spent a couple of hours with him in my own living room. Soft as flannel pajamas, and sharp as an embarrassing memory . . . he's just marvelous.
Julie L-D is his perfect match in this film. She's great and I've never been a fan. The script is the third star of this film. Director, Nicole Holofcener, must have had the time of her life working with these two pros. Holofcener, who has directed ?female-centric television shows like Sex and the City, Leap of Faith and Gilmore Girls", as well as a movie: Lovely and Amazing, and a couple of TV episodes of Six Feet Under, has a very soft touch.
Sweet, complex by mdpatrician
This movie was far sweeter and much more complex than I expected. Julia Louis Dreyfuss was fabulous--why don't we see more of her? James Gandolfini was perfect--we'll miss him so much.
I could relate by ocdrea
Great Sunday outing.. Bittersweet that James is gone.. He was great in this one... The casting was really good. Loved the humor around dating at "our age"! I did laugh and even got teary over the college departure scene... Had those mixed feelings of "loss" & "excitement" for my son when he left. Enjoyed this one!
Lovable by aley319
This movie is such a real life depiction of love after divorce. It's funny, it's sweet, it's emotional at times. Theres nothing over done or contrived. I loved it.
Enough Said by leemintz
Six of us saw this movie together (three couples). We all loved it. The acting was outstanding and we so enjoyed the chemistry between Julia Louis Dreyfuss and James Gandolfini. All the supporting actors were excellent also. Highly recommend this movie, particularly to anyone over the age of 50.
Enough Said by pattipie123
Acting superb - they were more like a theatre ensemble than assembled stars watching out for their images - dialogue great - as well as direction.
It felt "real," - quite an achievement - and there were tears and a lot of laughter...and even love

Thanks to Fandango and getting our tickets ahead of time. We did NOT see the movie because it was cancelled. I think you need to do a reverse text or email on movies that are cancelled when people buy advance tickets. A courtesy so we don't drive all the way there for NOTHING!!!
Enough Said by Buzzme2u2
My husband and I really enjoyed the movie. It had a good story to it and we loved that there was no swearing, violence or sex scenes. Just felt really bad knowing that was one of James Gandolfini's last movies.
