It would be easy if the movie just veered to Maggie plotting and scheming to get the exes back and maybe have some deeper character development for herself, but it didn't. Instead, it puts a character behind Georgette's cold demeanor, paints the feebleness and indecisiveness of John, and shows Maggie's relationship between the two of them. In a situation like theirs, one would expect that Maggie and Georgette wouldn't get along or stand being in the same room as each other, but there was none of that. There wasn't anything stereotypical in this movie when it came to relationships. The movie also goes on its way to show the bond between John and Georgette; with family duties aside, they complimented each other very well.
My primary issue was that because the movie focused on other aspects besides Maggie, she didn't have much development of her own considering she is the lead of the film. However, it showed that Maggie was unapologetic with what she wanted. She was no longer happy being in the relationship, she had instincts that maybe her husband was still lost with her, and she decided to do something about it. Georgette explicitly points out that Maggie could be controlling, but when a character is used to doing so many things on her own, was she really controlling? I guess in the grand scheme of things Maggie could be seen as manipulative, but she just acted on what she saw in front of her.
I like how this was written. It's not something that I have seen before, and it has been great watching how things turned out for them. It did have its characters compartmentalized into their own sphere, but the performances made it more than that. I enjoyed the movie much more than I thought; it was entertaining and funny.
