  1. Neither earth-shaking nor profound, but it has considerable charm, thanks to an appealing cast and some sharply witty observations about the pressures of child-rearing in Manhattan.
  2. Uma Thurman looks frumpy in Motherhood. This is the only pressing reason to see it.
  3. Parenthood seems only half aware of Eliza's REAL problem: that she thinks she's superior to the choices she's made.

    Motherhood doesn't really need a recession to call attention to its flaws. The movie's a perfect dud on its own terms.

    If Carrie Bradshaw ever trades her Manolos for sneakers and starts blogging about raising children, I pray she wouldn't be as tiresome as the heroine of Katherine Dieckmann's insufferable comedy Motherhood.
  6. 30
    Has shockingly little to say.
  7. Motherhood's litany of complaints and trite comedy-drama comes off as thin, and targeted, as a flyer for The Children's Place.
