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.

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

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.

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

Writer-director Jonathan Kasdan - he of the much-loved, short-lived Freaks and Geeks -- is no stranger to quirky characters. But why is it then that the characters in Land -- especially the high schoolers -- ring so false?

Here's a Cameron Crowe film that, oddly enough, wasn't directed by Cameron Crowe.

Ah, poor poor Carter. Will he emerge strengthened or diminished by his encounters in this faraway land?

The script is problematic. Much of it feels half-formed; there are some potentially interesting ideas but they are not really developed well. The audience is supposed to take certain things on face value -- and there are many missed opportunities, particu

Unintentionally makes a case for believing that the young have nothing of interest to say to their seniors, and very little of interest to say to each other.

Despite Adam's glorious performance, the show stealer was Olympia Dukakiswho was hilarious in every scene. From claiming she was dying every second to answering the front door with no pants. She stole the show for me.

It hits all the emotional cues right on schedule, pushing an audience's buttons with dull factory precision.

Shows very little respect for women and makes a youthful male soft-core porn writer into a supposed seer dispensing wisdom.

The acting is good, which really is no reason alone to spend good money on seeing this throwaway picture in the theater.

I can't recall the last [film] that filled me with the kind of utter loathing and contempt that this one did.

There's no denying that "In the Land of Women" has its moments of endearment, but Jon Kasdan's weepy coming-of-age dramedy lacks emotional authenticity.

While it catches something of the romantic zeitgeist of this time, much in the way The Big Chill did in the early '80s, I suspect this won't have the same stamina.

The "young man's post-traumatic discovery of life's value through quirky people tale" is an obscure genre that's somehow attracted Zach Braff, Cameron Crowe and Jon Kasdan.
