    There wasn't one honest moment in this hokey, contrived, and wretched excuse for a film. Angelina Jolie's somewhat nuanced performance barely saves it. It's almost entirely unwatchable. Detestably disingenious. "Life or Something Like It" is one of the worst films of the year!

    I thought this was an overall great movie about how serious life is taken and it has a lot of good messages about life.

  1. The result is a worthy woman's film and Jolie's best showcase to date.

    A banal message movie.
  3. Mostly about slapping together a bunch of clichés -- outdated clichés at that -- regarding the loneliness of ambitious women.
