    -The article is about the notable work by Nancy Meyers, a writer, director, and a producer. She is well-recognized in Hollywood because of her meticulous style and deft in engaging an audience of elder women, by truly capturing their fantasies. In fact, Meyers usually takes a total of 2yrs to complete a movie, with a year for writing, 6 months of filming, and 6 months of editing. Her latest film, “It’s complicated,” definitely has the promise and potential of great success among great competition.

    It is very true that we do not all want the same things, however, it is nice to know that there are people out there that care about voicing what many women over 50 think, want and do. Although we devoure movies such as The Da Vinci Code, but it is refreshing to go to a movie once in a while and see something uncomplicated, believing that there is always a solution to things and that there can be happy endings without having to put up with crashing cars and blown up helicopters, heros who never have messy hair or wrinkled shirts, women who are tremendously young and beautiful, or ugly creatures from outer space. Two thumbs up for Meyers.

    This article is about Nancy Meyers and the movie that she produced, “It’s Compliacted.” They spoke about how she had an incident that occured in a restaurant but Meyer didn’t really care much. She takes about a year for her to write the movie, another 6 months shooting it,and then 6 more months to edit it. This takes about 2 years, seems long but when you’re gettin paid 12 million dollars for it i don’t think anyone would complain about it.
