      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Men, Women & Children is timely, but director Jason Reitman's overbearing approach to its themes blunts the movie's impact.

      Teo Bugbee The New Republic Men, Women, & Children curates the world of technology into a tiny sliver of only the most outlandishly evil elements, and pretends that perspective is reason for despair. Aug 24, 2018 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire It's the kind of movie where you wouldn't be surprised to discover Reitman and co- writer Erin Cressida Wilson were ticking the boxes on a literal checklist. Jun 18, 2016 Full Review Mark Kermode Observer (UK) Top marks go to young leads Ansel Elgort and Kaitlyn Dever, who manage to create their own believable world within the mawkish miasma of this flawed movie. Rated: 2/5 Dec 7, 2014 Full Review Michael J. Casey Michael J. Cinema A shallow look at suburban America. Rated: 1/5 Oct 28, 2021 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Might have been better off with a title like Old Folks Just Don't Understand. Rated: 1/5 Feb 2, 2021 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Reitman comes up with a simple yet effective way to make it all work and for the most part it does.

      Edward H Unfortunate amateurish portrayal of a very serious problem that is so widespread. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Leah Stargazer L This movie basically was just a view into most people's lives. Love, sex, popularity, sadness, affairs. It held my interest but overall was slow with no wow factors. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Alec B The alarmist way it addresses the "perils" of the modern world might be hilarious if the film wasn't so tedious, dull, and self important. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Richard G I really liked how the various relationships unfolded, especially those who were younger, I followed them closely especially them --> Tim was my favorite, I could identify with him, and I was hoping that at least he would get together with Brandy in the end.. [spoiler] Chris messed up with Hannah I didn't like that part, even as a guy with little experience I would have done better haha. .. I couldn't identify with him... It was bad to see how much the two parents didn't understand their children.. specifically, it irritated me that the parents overprotecting their children ... they think they are helping, but they are harming them. I was so angry at Brandy's mother, what she did was evil, or maybe crazy... They treated their children as if they were still going to kindergarten, I don't know what good you achieve by being that kind of parent. [spoiler] Luckily Tim didn't die and it was great to see Brandy hugging him in the hospital bed. Their relationship was very cute :) maybe that's what I remember the most from the movie. I recommend watching it if you are into emotional movies. Romantic and dramatic both. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review For a film about the darkness that the Internet holds, I feel that it is small in scale, too inadequate, and concentrates on romance and pornography. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/01/22 Full Review isla s This is definitely an example of cringe-comedy, a bit like American Pie, so suffice to say its quite lewd. The comedy is, at times, more about the parents than the teenagers. On another topic, the fact that the teens are asked to find people who remember the day of 9/11, to talk about their memories of it, made me feel somewhat old, considering I remember well where I was at the time and to think there are teenagers who were too young to remember that, is a little depressing but thats a whole other issue(!). Given Adam Sandler is in this film, I suppose I should have had pretty low expectations of it but he doesn't play the main character, indeed there isn't really a main character as such as both the teens and the parents are shown perhaps as much as each others. I thought that overall this is more of a drama than an outright comedy, as towards the end the plot does become quite serious, with the negative consequences of social media, peer pressure and so on being shown. Trust is one of the key themes in this film I'd say. This film obviously contains quite a lot of sexual references and strong language, certainly in the first half to three quarters of the film, so I wouldn't recommend it be watched as a family as such but for what it is, its good, surprisingly good. I liked Emma Thompson, who voices the narrator - a somewhat thoughtful, philosophical voice. I would recommend this film, yes. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
