Uneven yet intermittently compelling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 13, 2011
It's a kind of unofficial sequel or sibling, three decades later, to Robert Benton's Oscar-winning Kramer vs. Kramer.
September 1, 2011
although it is a little more glossy than the novel it is based on, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits is a mature and thoughtful look at the dynamics of the 21st-century family unit.

a picture that doesn't know itself: vague whenever it needs to be specific, bloats whenever it needs to trim.

May 24, 2011
Often mistakes hollow hysterics for gripping drama.
April 16, 2011
Don Roos' movie demonstrates Natalie Portman's range, but it leans too heavily on her bad behavior, ignoring the growth the character experiences in a schizophrenic third act.
March 10, 2011
For a picture that really isn't much more than a high-toned soap opera...surprisingly effective.

February 11, 2011
One of the bigger challenges in Natalie Portman's career, and she responds with sublime work.

Resembles a number of recent Woody Allen pictures, except without the quality of jokes that leaven even Allen's worst explorations of this turf.

February 9, 2011
Right now, Portman commands the cineplexes as surrogate for misguided, self-pitying filmmakers.
February 7, 2011
The film tacks on a lot of issues and then it never quite follows any of them through.
February 7, 2011
As good as it is at times, The Other Woman never nears greatness; it lacks the mettle and focus to push beyond well-groomed melodrama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 5, 2011
Espouses smart and meaningful insights into the challenges of falling in love with the "wrong" man and joining a family in which one might not be the most natural fit.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 4, 2011
Soap opera for the bourgeoisie, The Other Woman is the kind of movie Lifetime audiences would gush over as sensitive and wise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 4, 2011
More affectingly honest about contemporary, complicated parenthood than a traditional chick flick love story. Kudrow pulls off the [most] difficult, crucial scene.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Natalie Portman may have the black swan and the white swan down, but she's still working on the gray.
February 4, 2011
While Natalie Portman and Lisa Kudrow do some terrific work, it's hard to care about these awful characters.

Thanks to Portman's superb work, we feel her pain acutely.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 3, 2011
Poignant portrait of a mother dealing with her grief over the death of her infant daughter and struggling with the need to wall herself off from those closest to her.
