Movie Info

As he did in "EATING," "GOING SHOPPING," "BABYFEVER" and "IRENE IN TIME," Writer-Director Henry Jaglom gives us a bracingly funny, fearless and fast-paced human comedy about yet another vital issue facing all women at a certain critical turning point in their lives. Set in a struggling Los Angeles television station threatened by economic downturn, possible in-house graft and massive job loss, Tanna Frederick plays Moxie, a children's TV show actress who unexpectedly turns into a Joan of Ark (with the passion of Norma Rae) when she finds herself leading an extraordinary band of rebelling women demanding their rights as they anxiously face uncertain futures after their new boss (Michael Imperioli) and his second-in-command (Robert Hallak) arrive from New York on a devastating cost-cutting mission. All of Moxie's personal and professional assumptions and those of her long-time boyfriend (Corey Feldman) are turned upside-down as her mother (Frances Fisher), her two aunts (Mary Crosby and Eliza Roberts), and her stepfather (Gregory Harrison), join with dozens of her fellow female office workers to illuminate the struggles, challenges and joys of what is still, in some circles, referred to as 'The Change Of Life.'

Lively but wildly erratic.

This is a sloppy, poorly paced effort that wastes a decent cast. The "M" might as well have stood for "mess."

May 1, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Indie stalwart Henry Jaglom's new film stumbles too often, and is too awkwardly earnest, to be considered a success.

May 1, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Meandering, mirthless and meh.

May 1, 2014 | Full Review…

As cavalier with structure as ever, Mr. Jaglom surrounds himself with familiars who embrace his cheery, disorderly style. (His films feel like gatherings of old friends because they are.)

Apr 29, 2014 | Full Review…

Jaglom smartly sees a parallel between midlife hormone upheaval and sudden workplace superfluousness, but his unstructured-gabfest approach makes rather a mess of it.
