Critic Reviews for In the Land of Women

All Critics (118) | Top Critics (39)

Brody is the epitome of the trustworthy, funny, approachable, but magnetic nice guy that you would marry in a second if he really existed. It was like Tom Hanks and John Cusack had a love child.

As soon as it's over, you start forgetting about it. It's not a bad movie, it's just fine.

The Scorecard Review

Touching-but-treacly chick flick for moms & teens.

Common Sense Media

Jonathan Kasdan infects them with a smart-ass self-awareness and a grandiose sense of vitality that borders on preciousness. It has that Baby Boomer quality of his father's films without any of the history to back it up.

Full Review… | August 6, 2007

Kasdan's gift for the smart crack is consistently undercut by a well-developed taste for schmalz.

I distrust any film in which people stand and argue and/or kiss in pelting rain

Audience Reviews for In the Land of Women


I really liked this movie. Adam Brody did a good job playing the leading man and Kristin Stewart is amazing.

Sort've light, sort've intelligent, sort've good. It mainly rides on the performances of Adam Brody, Kristen Stewart and Meg Ryan. The latter two definitely make this as good as it is, while Adam Brody basically just plays a variation of Seth Cohen from The O.C. So the mother/daughter storyline works extremely well, as does their shared time with Adam Brody. However, his time spent alone is utterly worthless and cheesy.

Super Reviewer

I caught about a half an hour of this on TV, and it certainly looked and sound like it was made for this medium. It may be good, but I'll probably never find out. [Real rating pending, I suppose.]
