As her three Oscars (to date) attest, Meryl Streep is typically excellent, but some of her most interesting work comes from her pairings with other distinctive talents.
She has one in this comedy thanks to fellow Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones, as they play a long-wed couple seeking a therapist's (Steve Carell) help in re-energizing their marriage, much more by the wife's desire than the husband's. Streep reteams here with her "The Devil Wears Prada" director, David Frankel. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Frankel; alternate scenes; outtakes. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
