Audience Reviews for In the Land of Women

    I liked it, everyone in it, and it's realistic story.

    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.

    Guess my expectations were too high. I was intrigued throughout, with the good cast and different type of storyline, but got lost somewhere through and didn't like the ending. Adam Brody and Kristen Stewart had amazing chemistry though. Loved that much.

    6.4/10~ Devastated over his breakup with his girlfriend, Carter Webb (Adam Brody) leaves L.A. to stay with his wacky Grandma in her suburban Detroit home, across the street from the Hardwicke family. Carter Webb is a young soft-core porn writer who resides in California. Along the way he forms a special bond with the family that lives across from his Grandma, and changes the life of each woman. In the course of this, as is required in every film--and thus the world, he changes his own life as well. He meets the Hardwickes who live next door, the mother (Meg Ryan), the teenager (Kristen Stewart), and the little girl, and they change each others lives forever. As Carter struggles to reconcile his own inner conflicts, he is drawn into the pains and loves of the Hardwicke women -- all of whom, in their way, fall in love with Carter, and all of whom, in their way, help him find his way back. So, is this just another Hollywood romantic flick & the plot that we have seen several times! Not really. This one's definitely something different (the story) than the rest other romantic flicks. The first half of the movie is quite sweet & the second half has some emotional moments. The performances by everyone is quite good. Adam Brody is wonderful, he comes to the big screen with nice performance. Kristen Stewart was fine & so was Meg Ryan. The songs during the movie are okay. Direction Jon Kasdan is soulful, it does touches your soul during various moments in the movie. But, the movie lacks a strong climax, of course the climax could have been presented in a better way to, but never-mind, the director had thought of something different. Nice romantic stuff.
