A girl finds herself in a pickle

Greta Gerwig as "Maggie" (an independent woman) bakes up a plan to become a single mother and in the process 'the plan' works but then backfires and puts her into a situation 'the plan' did not include - marriage. Gerwig gives a charming performance as Maggie steering a course through a relationship with a overly analytical writer once divorced husband, raising her three year old child, working her job as an instructor in a local college, and realizing her husband is still in love with his first wife! Maggie is in a pickle so she devises another plan! The setting is the New York City intellectual society living in row houses and meeting in cafe's to socialize. The cast includes Bill Hader, Ethan Hawke, Maya Rudolph, Julianne Moore, Wallace Shawn. This is a simple 'slice of life' type story about modern people looking for and finding happiness and direction in their life. It's probably a film more appreciated by a viewer that likes a romantic flavor in a story that looks into the feelings and emotion in the human spirit. This is a cheerful light story that includes just a touch of sorrow mixed into a picture of mostly happy people getting on with life. And don't forget the pickles!

Easy-going rom-com

'Maggie's Plan' is a fairly simple romantic-comedy - quite light and breezy, with a few laughs and nothing too dramatic to bog it down. Maggie (Gerwig) works at a New York university and her "plan" is to have a child by herself, since she's ready to be a mother (she's only meant to be 29, mind) and "borrows" some sperm off an old friend. The "plan" goes astray when she meets John (Hawke), a professor/anthropologist who's trying to write a novel, and falls in love with him. This is obviously further complicated by the fact John's married to Georgette (Moore), another professor - but she's Danish - and Maggie unwittingly becomes a homewrecker. She technically ends up with three kids - hers and John's, plus her two step-kids John & Georgette already had. Tony (Hader) and Felicia (Rudolph) play her long-married friends and have most of the laugh-out-loud moments. After a few years, Maggie's sick of John and her new "plan" is to get him back together with Georgette, which Tony accidentally gives away. The film's not as madcap as it may sound, and Gerwig plays Maggie as innocent and charming. It's real fun watching Hawke & Moore out of their comfort zone - Hawke as the bumbling/ignorant guy who has no idea what's going on in his life and Moore as a straight-and-narrow foreigner, but her accent is hilarious and her character a little deeper than it first appears. The film probably needed a bit more of Hader & Rudolph, but it's all quite sweet and nice, including the ending.

The actors are really good in this. And you really feel for them, even when they go through stuff, where you might go "so what?"! But it can still feel like a drag for some, which is why the viewers are split on this one. I did enjoy personally to a degree, but it's still not as good as some other indie movies are. What may be surprising to some, is the casual nudity that is being displayed. On the other hand I heard Americans are not as frigid anymore as they used to be ... generally speaking, not when it comes to the rating board of course. But this is more than just a shell, it's about how to grow up, when to grow up and what to make of ones life ... Which boils down to decisions ...
