While We’re Young


 OK so Ben Stiller is me: bitter that the film he’s been obsessing over for ten years and driving his wife nuts, hasn’t seen the light of day. Except mine did and Gaby only gave me heroic encouragement all the way. So does it ring true? Well it’s very funny in parts, too long as usual these days, especially the intercutting between Stiller’s showdown speech with his nemesis and his father-in-law’s valediction speech, and is really a meditation on the crisis in the marriage of a modern childless couple and the callowness of youth: so overall I’ll go with a thumbs up. But if you really want to be gripped on a similar theme, go and see ALL ABOUT EVE, (thanks to encouraging wife Gaby for pointing this out).
