    Absolutely 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!

    Stay away from this movie, it is not good at all and its not often I will say that.
    If you are looking for a comedy don't watch it because I didn't find it funny at all
    I am giving it a 3 because Meg Ryan did a great job and that is it

    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

    If "In the Land of the Women" wanted to put more distance between itself and Zach Braff's "Garden State", Carter Webb(Adam Brody) had to get happy in order for us to see if his relationships with Sarah(Meg Ryan) and Lucy(Kristen Stewart) would alter any. Braff's character had an everyman quality, but Carter is different; he's a chick magnet, a sad chick magnet, whose forces If "In the Land of the Women" wanted to put more distance between itself and Zach Braff's "Garden State", Carter Webb(Adam Brody) had to get happy in order for us to see if his relationships with Sarah(Meg Ryan) and Lucy(Kristen Stewart) would alter any. Braff's character had an everyman quality, but Carter is different; he's a chick magnet, a sad chick magnet, whose forces of hotness even when set at hangdog, manages to pull a mother and daughter irrevocably towards his lips. When Carter was dating Sofia(Elena Anaya), his hot Latina model-girlfriend, would he have deemed these Wolverine State gals as being below his station? Let's not forget that Carter Webb was born and bred in Los Angeles(his mother, played by JoBeth Williams seems a little snobby). Nevertheless, "In the Land of the Women" withstands the negation of a litmus test for Carter's actual persona, and the "Terms of Endearment"-like trick of reconciling a feuding mother and daughter, to earn the title of "Garden State"-lite replete with one inspired moment(hint: John Hughes' ouevre is mentioned and there's a payoff to the film's name-dropping).

    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

    At least it's better than watching the OC. which doesn't say much but it does.

    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.
