More Info:
  • Marc Mohan

    Solid acting, especially from the women, and a few good Colin Farrell jokes make this familiar tale better than it probably should be.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Fresh, funny and perceptive.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    If you can get past the lips, Ryan gives a touching performance as a woman determined to battle her cancer while knowing life offers no guarantees except death -- an understanding no doubt sharpened by Kasdan's own experience battling Hodgkin's disease as a teenager.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    What gives In the Land of Women its singular charm is the charismatic Adam Brody, the star of TV's "The OC."

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Enjoyable for a movie in which pretty much nothing happens.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Uneven and affecting movie.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    The 27-year-old Kasdan displays an ability to bring a refreshing, human touch to what could be overly familiar material that echoes what his father did in films like "The Big Chill" and "Body Heat."

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Kasdan has made a winning if overly pat first feature notable for its keen ear, its preference for character over plot and its refreshing modesty.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Manages to be entertaining, largely because of the appealing Adam Brody.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Stina Chyn

    Isn't a bad film per se--it’s just an empty film.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Luke Sader

    Probably needed more originality than is on display. With an age-old cinema theme of a young man's maturation, it also needs to land female ticket-buyers but seems a lot like something women could find at home on the WE channel.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Kasdan has inherited much of his father's surface skills; he knows how to round out a scene and keep things on story point. But In the Land of Women doesn't for a moment feel messy and chaotic where it counts.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Despite its desperate attempts to appeal to every possible age group, there is no obvious audience for this movie.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    To his credit, writer-director Jonathan Kasdan is sensitive and observant...But he doesn't know what he's talking about, not really, and though he structures the film around his areas of ignorance, that only works partially.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    In the Land of Women sounds like a piece of cheap science fiction about the last man on earth. If you're the lovelorn mother and daughter in Jonathan Kasdan's first movie, a grating romantic drama, that's painfully close to the truth.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    With its wry tone and mild emotional disturbances, In the Land of Women is less a chick flick than a chick flicker.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Despite a title that makes this movie sound as though it might be the latest madcap offering from Pedro Almodóvar, In the Land of Women is a much more conventional affair – a tame yet appealing melodrama about finding one's self that is alternately formulaic and unique.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The picture is so gentle, it barely leaves an impression. Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A strong cast struggles valiantly to rise above Lifetime material in In the Land of Women, an appealingly scruffy if overly programmatic drama.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    The movie refuses to descend into the cute smarminess of a mutual recovery drama, thanks to originally conceived characters. We're always wondering -- and wonderfully surprised -- by their choices.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    This comedy drama is capably acted and undeniably touching in spots.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Bill White

    Most of this is harmless enough, but Kasdan's Hollywood logic is simply too implausible.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    "Women" confirms that the only thing less enjoyable than enduring long, drawn-out conversations about feelings and relationships in real life is watching movies about people having long, drawn-out conversations about feelings and relationships.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Soppy, schematic weepie.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jessica Grose

    Maudlin, formulaic affair.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    The meek, mopey comedy In the Land of Women is the film equivalent of a sensitive emo band with one foot in alternative rock and the other in the squishy pop mainstream: a softer, fuzzier "Garden State."

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ethan Alter

    Like the equally dull romantic drama "Catch and Release," which was in theaters for a nanosecond back in January, In the Land of Women strains to convince the audience to that it's telling a real story about real people. But with its glossy visuals and photo-shoot ready cast, the movie ends up presenting us with the very opposite of reality.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    In the Land of Women is one of those films informed by intimate personal experience - the experience of seeing "Garden State."

    New York Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Combines hugs and ''pain'' and dialogue so fakey-cute it makes your ears hurt.
