Movie Info

A young writer from New York City (Shiloh Fernandez) returns home and tries to reconnect with his estranged ex-girlfriend (Ashley Benson), only to discover that she's engaged to someone else. To make matters worse, she still hasn't forgiven him for writing a short story based on her parents' failed marriage. Meanwhile, his parents (Chris Noth and Mary-Louise Parker) are facing problems of their own. Xavier Manrique directed this comedy-drama, which co-stars Addison Timlin and Josh Peck.


Critic Reviews for Chronically Metropolitan

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

  • Resembling a Philip Roth novel that the author had the good sense to leave unpublished, Chronically Metropolitan leaves no cliché unturned in its depiction of the social and romantic travails of a group of Upper East Side New Yorkers.

  • Several times in "Chronically Metropolitan," a man stares at a screen as nothing happens. You'll know just how he feels.

  • Schutt's puckish script largely skims the surface of its too-familiar characters' navel-gazing plights, rarely sweeping us into their privileged universe.

  • The best way to watch is to think of it as a parody of a particularly pretentious brand of indie romance. Unfortunately, director Xavier Manrique and writer Nicholas Schutt play it so solemnly straight that it seems unlikely they're aiming for satire.

  • There's little to cheer in this self-serious family drama that includes such predictable shenanigans as adultery, divorce, and trying to stop a wedding.

  • Chronically Metropolitan is a coming-of-age dramedy but it doesn't come without some cynicism.
