Product Description

Product Description

When Rafi (Uma Thurman), a 37-year-old single woman, meets David (Bryan Greenberg), a 23-year-old painter, it's love at first sight. But that love gets complicated fast when Rafi discovers that David is also the son of her therapist (Academy Award winner Meryl Streep)! Professional help is about to get very personal in this entertaining and irresistibly charming hit that critics are calling "a funny and very sexy comedy" (Jess Cagle, WCBS/People Magazine).

Amazon.ca

Bolstered by an appealing cast and the comedic genius of Meryl Streep, Prime is an above-average "rom-com" that never stoops to compromise. The plot conceived by writer/director Ben Younger (Boiler Room) is a bit far-fetched, but once he's established that 37-year-old Gentile divorcee Rafi Gardet (Uma Thurman) is unknowingly dating the 23-year-old son (Bryan Greenberg) of her Jewish psychotherapist (played by Streep), the unlikely premise gets an intelligent workout, touching upon all of the issues that would realistically emerge as their dilemma is taken to its logical (or illogical) extremes. As a pair of genuinely devoted lovers in their sexual prime (hence the title), Thurman and Greenberg make this movie a constant joy to watch (and let's face it, Uma's utterly irresistible as an "older woman" who's looking for Mr. Right). But it's Streep's mastery of multi-layered expression and subtle comedic timing that makes Prime so engaging. Younger is also refreshingly resistant to easy solutions and conventional feel-good sentiment; he constantly steers Prime toward a sensible examination of a hazardous romance, never insulting the intelligence of his characters or his audience. The result is a mature, honest relationship comedy that never feels forced, but still offers plenty of good, solid laughs. --Jeff Shannon

If I didn't know better I would say this is an infomercial for all Jewish mothers who are really concerned that their sons marry nice Jewish girls, have Jewish kids....well you get the idea.

Although this film is promoted for its sophisticated storyline, Meryl Streep adds the only charisma and sophistication to the entire film. Streep definitely outshines Uma Thurman and Bryan Greenberg in this film. In fact, she is the only person carrying it. Her acting is superb as always, and she delivers her lines with impeccable timing and emotion. Thurman and Greenberg, on the other hand, appear like two awkward teenagers throughout the film. They had zero chemistry, and Greenberg's acting fed nothing to Thurman for her to work off of. Greenburg, despite his dashing, cute puppy looks, could not carry the leading man role because he seemed afraid to take the reigns. But Thurman wasn't better off anyway; it seemed like she was trying to take hold of her role throughout the entire film but she just couldn't get it right for some reason. Maybe the concept of the film was just too hard for her to work with, or maybe the script itself just gave her very little to begin with. Nonetheless, Rafi and Dave's dialog is trite, cliché, and very middle school at times. Everything they said to each other seemed expected of them and didn't add any new insights to their intellect, emotional maturity, or the maturity of the relationship. You could never really understand why the two were together besides the excitement from the age difference and the sexual exploration. Their romance unfolds in the most obvious and least charming fashion. The dates they go on seem unrealistic for a 37-year-old divorcée. (i.e. Underground rap clubs.

Finally,a decent romantic comedy.not really a chick flick,but something
a guy could enjoy as much as a woman.also,very witty,with more than a
few laugh out loud moments.great acting from all,good direction,and
also very good writing.i won't give away any thing about the plot of
the movie,for those who haven't seen it.but i will say this movie is
unique for a couple of reasons.first off,it is one of the few movie
billed as a romantic comedy,that has comedy.it's actually funny.Imagine
that.Second,there is a romance aspect to the film,but it is not so
mooshy(I know mooshy isn't really a word,but it fits)that guys won't
like it.it's almost romance lite.so a guy can see this movie with his
girlfriend and actually say he enjoyed it.and,quite frankly,a guy could
watch it on his own,without his manhood being questioned.I'd recommend
Prime to any one who likes comedy and romance,female or male. a strong 4/5

By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 20 2013
Format: DVD
Recently divorced Rafi Gardet (Uma Thurman) finds a hot new relationship with a much much much younger man. She tells all down to the nitty-gritty details to her therapist Lisa Metzger (Meryl Streep) not knowing that Lisa is her lover's mother. The situation gets quite sticky.

People looking for something new or unique will be disappointed. For people that like the guy girl on and off again misunderstanding it has rarely been done better. The difference is that the main characters are not portrayed ad ditzy and the therapist is not portrayed as "She Devil." The fake Jewish thing may be a little annoying; however without it there would be no story.

If you buy the DVD do not for get to listen to the voice over commentary as it make the viewing experience richer just knowing what they were trying to accomplish. Did they succeed?
