    "Serious Midnight" is a farewell to the late Adrienne Shelly (who wrote the screenplay and it's the last) and directed by her "Waitress" co-star Cheryl Hines. Meg Ryan plays Louise a successful lawyer who comes home early to her husband Ian (Timothy Hutton) to surprise him only to discover that the house is decorated. Quickly to discover that he decorated the cottage for his girlfriend Sara (Kirsten Bell) for a romantic weekend in Paris and Ian wants a divorce. He purposes the idea to get a divorce, Louise wants to work things out, so she ends up tying him. Just when you thought couldn't get any worse a burglar (played by Justin Long) robs their house and hilarity is suppose to ensue. This definitely isn't better than Shelly's other film Waitress, but there's lot of effort her and I don't blame the performances from Ryan, Hutton, Bell and Long but it's okay. The screenplay isn't funny which is shocking because Shelly is capable of good comedy but it's has positives and it's flaws.The script is okay but entertaining also interesting and the direction by Hines is REALLY bad, but the result it's okay could of been better but I'm fine with what we have, the performances outshine the film. 3/5 stars

    One of the best marriage comedies. It's funny, sad, clever and an honest look at marriage. When marriage has flaws,so why can't this movie? Meg is magnificent! ??

    I tend to like movies about relationships but this one is just bad. I said, "Oh, gimme a break." too many times during this film.

    Your suspension of disbelief will be tested. But most of all I'm in disbelief how 24% of critics have this a favorable review. The are so many problems with this movie I wouldn't know where to begin. I only recommend watching it if you are strapped to a toilet and think you are about to die.

    Even though I didn't find it as funny as I probably should have, I still liked it as whole...:) And I'm very proud that I guessed the twist in the end...:)

    I had gone to a party as a small boy in Bombay, and saw two girls there together. When I returned to Calcutta, I felt the same identical girls were in school, together, and I had a hard time convincing them, that they were in Mumbai. I had the same singular experience, when I thought that Meg Ryan was Jennifer Aniston, looking at this movie. I mean, how nice is that? I hope all friends are really nice.
