The only thing worse is wasting Reese Witherspoon and Candice Bergen. That lovely bit of casting alone – Witherspoon and Bergen as daughter and mom – should have been enough to lift "Home Again" into at least the ranks of fairly entertaining, harmless guilty-pleasure rom-coms.Instead, the debut feature of writer-director Hallie Meyers-Shyer leaves you marveling at how disappointingly inept it feels, from plot developments so obvious you see them coming 40 minutes ahead, to the gooey, lingering close-ups of characters laughing happily. Mom Lilian (Bergen) was an actress.Would that Alice had her mother's sangfroid. Drinking leads to dancing, to more drinks at Alice's home, to an aborted sexual encounter between Alice and Harry – aborted because Harry's throwing up.Alice has to make a tough decision.
