    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. Expand

    It's a little movie, sure, but it's worth seeing. I'm glad I checked it out (with the "2" other people in the theater). Brody is solid in this role, and the writers didn't take the audience down the most predictable paths. [BTW: if you're from LA, the character probably went to Crossroads, which is a little interesting. Am I right J.K.?] Meg Ryan's character It's a little movie, sure, but it's worth seeing.

[BTW: if you're from LA, the character probably went to Crossroads, which is a little interesting. Am I right J.K.?] Meg Ryan's character could have been fleshed out a bit more, but her relationship with the Brody character is really interesting. And while the teenage girl isn't totally believable, her anger & frustration with her mother is fleshed out well, and it services the conclusion of the film nicely. Oh yes, and Olympia Dukakis is a hoot. Expand

    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.

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

    Maudlin, formulaic affair.
