Critic Consensus: Wryly charming, impeccably acted, and ultimately quite bittersweet, Enough Said is a grown-up movie in the best possible way.

Critic Reviews for Enough Said
The film contains Gandolfini's final lead role, but his performance is cherishably un-final: easy, open and insisting on nothing, it's the work of a man who is just getting started.
Helping anchor affairs, though, is the bear-like Gandolfini, who brings charm and gravitas to a movie that might otherwise have seemed very superficial.
These are the subjects that Holofcener does exceptionally well -- the myopia, vanity and insecurities of the moderately privileged.
Some films are a cold shower, others a warm bath. Enough Said is mainly a warm bath but bracing morality gives the romantic comedy an anchor in common relationship reality.
Audience Reviews for Enough Said
Enough Said is a non-Hollywood type of story. The actors are older and physically not movie-star perfect, and the script is believable.
Much better than expected. Would probably appeal most to a 40 plus audience. I say that because I think a younger audience possibly wouldn't have the life experience to really "get" this time of life and possibly find this a bit boring. It wasn't all relatable to myself either, for example, going through empty nest syndrome, but I still found this really convincing and it felt very true to life in the situations. Nice story about finding love again and accepting others and their faults. Quite talky. Enjoyable.
Most of the attention drawn to this film concerns the fact that this is one of James Gandolfini's last roles. That being said, the film itself is very enjoyable. It's a light comedy about a mom that can't let go of her kid, doesn't want to make the same mistakes she made in her first marriage, and fears the future. It starts very charming, showing the character's sweetness and allure, but the film swan dives into a tense romantic drama near the end. This change is sudden and very awkward, which in turn deviates from the charming beginning, and we lose a lot of respect for Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character. She becomes judgmental, close-minded, and really rude, and though I know most of this is due to insecurity and fear, it really doesn't excuse her actions. I suppose what really bothers me is that I have no empathy for people in a relationship who act mean just to act mean. This film is good for middle aged single people or mothers who understand the complexities of these issues, but this film only left me a little angry and depressed, which I don't believe was the intention.
