Critics reviews

Liked it less this time but I liked the Fonda-Alda segment more, a middle-aged reunion of exes, Fonda’s brittle air of resentment and Simon’s perfectly (if rather self-consciously) weighted sallies: “Is being in love [with another woman] better now?” “Yes.” “Why?” “Because it’s now.”
