    A hugely enjoyable romantic comedy that dares to suggest that love can bloom -- and, more important, hormones can rage -- after 50. Smart, sassy and slickly packaged.

    A comedic semi-rehash of "An Unmarried Woman" (1978) with older leads, Never Again sports a good-hearted story but doesn't know how to tell it.
  3. 50
    Here's a case of two actors who do everything humanly possible to create characters who are sweet and believable, and are defeated by a screenplay that forces them into bizarre, implausible behavior.
  4. 40
    This is not exactly original, but Schaeffer and his cast manage to make it tolerable.
  5. A wretched comedy about middle-aged romance.
  6. 25
    The germ of a better film lies in that joke, but Schaeffer doesn't quite dig it out. Instead, we get painfully unfunny scenes that make us think that when it comes to writing comedy, Schaeffer should stick to his own rule: never again.
  7. Rarely does a film so graceless and devoid of merit as this one come along.

    This may be the most poorly written movie I have ever experienced. The dialogue lumbers and each scene is so contrived and nonsensical I kept This may be the most poorly written movie I have ever experienced. The dialogue lumbers and each scene is so contrived and nonsensical I kept thinking to myself, "Why, why, why?!" Watch "Something's Gotta Give" instead, a well written, intelligent and funny romantic comedy featuring 50/60 year old characters. Avoid "Never Again". Expand
