    USA Today Claudia Puig

    It's clever, farcical and offers wry social commentary. With its heartfelt performances, intelligent writing and subtle humor, this is easily one of the most perceptive and engaging movies of the year.

    Variety Justin Chang

    Enough Said may be her cleanest, most polished and broadly funny effort to date; its emotional generosity is undeniable, but so is its tendency to smooth over some of the hard, brittle edges that have been the more interesting hallmarks of Holofcener’s work.

    The Hollywood Reporter Todd McCarthy

    This is Holofcener’s sweet spot, the depiction of the emotional confusions, self-deceptions, uncertainties and misguided decisions that can cloud and get the better of otherwise bright, aware people, especially the female characters she tends to specialize in.

    Gandolfini is effortlessly, quietly great.

    I can't say enough about the way Enough Said keeps its scintillating sense of humor as it grows deeper and more affecting.

    It shows us how rare love is — and how we need to grab it and not let it go.

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

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?
