Movie Info

What makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong and left for Mr. Right? This simultaneously entertaining and enlightening comedy is a fresh, witty, and all-too-relatable look at the real-life science behind our (often regrettable) romantic impulses. Writer-director Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) stars as no-nonsense neuroscientist Julia, whose research into the biochemistry of the female brain is illustrated by three couples: newlyweds Zoe (Cecily Strong) and Greg (Blake Griffin), whose career troubles seep into their relationship; Lisa (Sofia Vergara) and Steven (Deon Cole), who are looking to spice up their stuck-in-a-rut marriage; and Lexi (Lucy Punch) who can't help trying to change her boyfriend Adam (James Marsden).

Critic Reviews for The Female Brain

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

Griffin, showing an easygoing charisma and sharp comic timing, is a slam dunk. Otherwise "The Female Brain" is mindless.

By the time the film chugs to its nonsensical ending, it's become a very familiar feeling indeed.

February 9, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Cummings meanders between all of these couples and their troubles without much pacing, momentum or insight.

February 9, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Cummings may have taken the easy way out here and there, but she largely delivers a film that kinda sorta makes you think, which isn't a characteristic the genre is known for. Throughout, your feel-good chemicals will be flowing.

Its creators' hearts may be in the right place, but that's not enough to save The Female Brain from overthinking it.

February 8, 2018 | Full Review…

By fitting characters into formulas, "The Female Brain" fails to observe the flexibility of human experience.
