Alice (Reese Witherspoon), a recently separated mother of two, finds her life upended when three young, charismatic filmmakers move into her guest house. But her unlikely new family and a budding romance come to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. A story of love, friendship, the families we create, Home Again is a modern romantic comedy with one very big life lesson: starting over is not for beginners!

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Home Again gathers a talented crowd of rom-com veterans on both sides of the camera -- all of whom have unfortunately done far better work.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Home Again is a comedy/romance starring Reese Witherspoon as a newly separated LA mom whose life changes drastically when she invites three younger guys to come stay in her guesthouse. The movie has several scenes of drinking and partying, including an adult couple's drunken attempt at sex. There are more sexual situations between the couple, too, but no nudity. Language isn't frequent but includes "s--t," "bitch," and "goddamn"; in one scene, a bag of marijuana is discovered (but it's not used on-screen). Given the movie's premise, it's no surprise that the topic of separation and divorce is central. Witherspoon's character's kids catch her emerging from her room one morning with one of the younger guys. Parents will want to gauge how ready kids are to talk about moving on from a failed marriage into a new concept of family.
