    This is about Meg. Only about Meg. Meg in the Middle.

    So drippy it really should be hung out to dry.
  4. Too screwy to be really funny.
  5. Father-daughter relationship lacks impact.

    That we are supposed to find something to admire in this callow crew is insufferable.
  7. Essentially an extended cutesy session.

    So hackneyed and so condescending to its potential audience (adult women) that even Lifetime might hesitate before running it.
  10. Doesn't work as comedy or drama or anything in between.
  11. 20

  13. There is not one honest moment, not ONE, in Hanging Up.
