Consensus: While pleasantly acted, In the Land of Women is a dramatically stilted film with underdeveloped characters.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

A movie with one awkward identity crisis.

USA Today

The film belongs to Brody, an endearing screen presence.

Heather Huntington

Brody is the epitome of the trustworthy, funny, approachable, but magnetic nice guy that you would marry in a second if he really existed. It was like Tom Hanks and John Cusack had a love child.

Nathan Rabin
AV Club

Is it too early to call for a moratorium on earnest comedy-dramas about overly sensitive, hyper-verbal young men working through emotional crises by having deep, meaningful conversations with manic pixie dream-girls?

Susan Walker
Toronto Star

This potentially saccharine weepy has an authentic ring, thanks to Jon Kasdan's script and a cast capable of delivering clever lines that sound just about right for whatever situation they're in.

As soon as it's over, you start forgetting about it. It's not a bad movie, it's just fine.

Tom Beer
Time Out

The screenplay by Kasdan is soggy with earnest clichés.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

In the Land of Women is a pretty enough place to visit (particularly the design-mag interiors of Ryan's character's home, all precisely coordinated to match her eyes), but as a movie it appears to have nothing to say.

Common Sense Media

Touching-but-treacly chick flick for moms & teens.

I caught about a half an hour of this on TV, and it certainly looked and sound like it was made for this medium. It may be good, but I'll probably never… More

I liked this one. It wasn't exactly what I expected, which was a chick flick type of movie, and I wasn't too sure I liked it until it was almost over,… More
