Jason Reitman's deceptively light exploration of the Digital Age couples both comedy and tragedy through near-accepted absurdity.
April 3, 2019
How hilariously perverse that a film about how we don't communicate any more has nothing to say... This is calamitous, inept filmmaking designed to look and feel "important".
March 22, 2019
A huge, intricately woven film that at least attempts to say something profound about the current digital-obsessed landscape.
August 24, 2018
Men, Women, & Children curates the world of technology into a tiny sliver of only the most outlandishly evil elements, and pretends that perspective is reason for despair.
May 26, 2018
Moving and intense, Men, Women, and Children manages to make us confront uncomfortable realities about ourselves, while also reassuring us that we can also be good people.
September 25, 2017
Men, Women, & Children is the latest of the cinematic thinkpiece new wave, a food-for-thought lesson in didacticism that, in its attempt to capture the multiple dimensions that technology adds to our lives, ends up seeming more like a flat morality tale.

The entire cast all turn in first-rate performances, as Reitman has given us a finely executed and fascinating cautionary tale that leaves lots of food for thought.
June 18, 2016
It's the kind of movie where you wouldn't be surprised to discover Reitman and co- writer Erin Cressida Wilson were ticking the boxes on a literal checklist.
April 18, 2016
(Writrer-Director) Reitman indicts our society, which has become not just wired but thoroughly trussed up. He comes down too hard, though, on the one character who is perceptive enough to see from the start where all this connectedness is heading.
April 15, 2016
If Reitman's aim was to push buttons, make us think, and give his cast a stage for some stellar performances, he's succeeded wildly.
February 27, 2016
It looks fantastic but adds nothing to the discussion of a post-9/11 world - Men, Women & Children merely exploits it.
January 20, 2015
The name of the film is "Men, Women & Children." Don't forget the animals, because this one's a real dog.

Ultimately, when it comes time to tie the film all together into something memorable, Men, Women & Children offers only its equivalent of a shrugging emoticon in reply.
December 12, 2014
Much of the film's hard work is undone by a weak finale. Most of the characters go through a life-changing epiphany that doesn't ring true.
December 8, 2014
Though a couple of the storylines have some of the bite of Reitman's earlier work, the film mostly resorts to look-how-crazy-this-is handwringing ...
December 8, 2014
A new film, but the themes are old and tired.
December 7, 2014
Top marks go to young leads Ansel Elgort and Kaitlyn Dever, who manage to create their own believable world within the mawkish miasma of this flawed movie.
December 6, 2014
Flitting furiously from one story to the next, the film seems, appropriately enough, unhappy to allow any exchanges longer than 140 characters.
December 5, 2014
The script is so banal, it often plays like a spoof ...
December 5, 2014
There's a fundamental flaw to this multi-strand social media-themed drama: it's told completely from the perspective of older people.
