Philip Seymour Hoffman, dead of an apparent drug overdose, was one of my favorite actors. And in A Late Quartet -- and how ironic does that title seem now? -- he gave a great performance. It was a crowd-pleaser at film festivals.

Enough Said cleverly depicts the slippery slope of how a divorced masseuse named Eva (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) allows her new romance with Albert, a television archivist (James Gandolfini), to be tarnished by his ex-wife's post-divorce perspectives.

You'll do better with this film if you don't think about it as offering meaningful messages at all. As entertainment, the film is a rip-snorting barn-burner.
