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

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

    Enjoyable for a movie in which pretty much nothing happens.

    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.

    Uneven and affecting movie.
  6. Fresh, funny and perceptive.

    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.
  8. 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."
  9. 63
    Manages to be entertaining, largely because of the appealing Adam Brody.

    The trailers blow this movie to be somehting of a big heart warmer but in reality the blowing up did nothing for the movie. I was disapointed The trailers blow this movie to be somehting of a big heart warmer but in reality the blowing up did nothing for the movie. I was disapointed at Adrien Brody's performance. I mean I know he is young and what not but still there are people who are just his age and have the whole acting thing down pact. His performance in my opinon was the worst in the movie. Meg Ryan's character also was a bit out of place I didnt understand her, its almost as if her character didnt have any common sense. Well overall the movie was a disapointment even though it came out with good intentions I think there could have been a better performance overall. Full Review »

    Absolutely superb. This film is Kasdan through and through, though it be written and directed by a son of the great Lawrence Kasdan, JonAbsolutely superb. This film is Kasdan through and through, though it be written and directed by a son of the great Lawrence Kasdan, Jon Kasdan. It is not a light romantic comedy, nor is it really a comedy, or even a "romance" per se. What it is is a good drama and well worth the Ten that I have given it! Full Review »
