Even Midler can't redeem it from terminal Lifetime-movie-dom.

... might be viewed as a symptom of a Hollywood system in which women of a certain age are devalued and ignored.

This is the sort of movie that gives 'chick flicks' a bad name.

A bizarre, overcooked broth.

April 25, 2008

Looking an anorexic 15 years older than her character, she grabs onto her role with a grim, two-fisted attack. While the supporting cast in this dramedy swims toward comedy, Hunt drowns in tragedy.

It's the kind of film that practically invites you to forget about it two days after you've seen it.

The material isn't much different from a Woody Allen film, but, unfortunately, the execution is.

In her first shot as director, Hunt seems direction-less.

From the looks of things, the actors were simply let loose as themselves.

April and Frank are mired in angst, for no discernable reason, other than having the misfortune of being stuck in a downer of a movie.

Then She Found Me is a commendable but not very exciting feature-directing debut by actress Helen Hunt. Although she wields most of the creative power on the film she doesn't turn this into a vanity project.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A grim, grey little affair of people who aren't interesting failing to achieve catharsis in the banal, depressing problems of their lives.

Guardian

It's not the only misstep in Oscar-winning actress Helen Hunt's first film as director, which is a shame because she does a lot of things right.

Then She Found Me will do just fine as quirky filler on women's cable networks, but considering the talent involved there was reason to expect more.

Financial Times

Hunt's lovely voice, pitched in that diurnal-dizzy limbo between mezzo and soprano, is perfect for mid-life crisis. So is her gawky, strung-out, tragicomical body language.

Helen Hunt probably could have made this into a delightful little comedy or a thoughtful drama. But the clumsy mixing of those elements makes for an awkward mess.

The experience of watching Then She Found Me couldn't be as agonizing as the trauma onscreen, but it's close.

About the most interesting thing about this uninteresting nervous dramedy is the casting of controversial writer Salman Rushdie as a gynecologist.

For a "personal project," it's all fairly impersonal and predictable. By the second act, you know everything that's going to happen in the third. And by the third -- well, I almost found myself missing Meg Ryan.
