TOP 100 MOVIES in 2007!
The paper-thin plot goes like this… Carter Webb (Adam Brody) is a soft-core porn writer who lives in L.A. He gets dumped by his longtime girlfriend-turned-actress Sofia Buñuel (Elena Anaya), becomes heartbroken and starts to reflect on his never very fortunate love life. That same day his Mom gets a call that his Grandmother is dying, so he decides he'll move in with her and take care of her – giving him a chance to get out of L.A. for a while so that he can focus on writing some new material that he's been talking about writing for years. He soon meets the Hardwicke women who live across the street from his Grandma – the mother Sarah (Meg Ryan), the oldest teenaged daughter Lucy (Kristen Stewart) and the youngest grade-schooler daughter Paige (Makenzie Vega).
Then for no apparent reason each Hardwicke woman spills their guts to Carter and falls in love with him in their own ways. They air all their dirty laundry and family skeletons, sex issues and how their husband/father is having an affair, etc. Carter returns the favor, spilling his guts about everything in his life (again for no apparent reason). There wasn't much character development; they were all so one-dimensional. The dialogue was really abysmal and the paper-thin plot wasn't much better. In addition, many of the scenes just didn't make any sense as to why things were happening the way they were. Overall, "In the Land of Women" was a complete disaster and waste of time (which is sad because I really like Meg Ryan). Writer/director Jon Kasdan really did a horrible job and I'm still confused as to how he got someone like Meg Ryan to be a part of such a rank, steaming pile of a movie.
All in all, I'd give this movie 1 STAR (out of 5). Re-watch value: NONE (please, for the love of ( ) save your $$$ and stay away from this horrible movie).
"In the land of Women" is a romantic comedy (Supposedly) about life and the adventure it takes. For as long as he could remember, Carter Webb (Adam Brody) had been falling in love with women. And for as long as he could remember, he'd been searching for the right one. He found everything he was looking for in Sophia (Elena Anaya) and for a little while he was happy.
I honestly felt lost during this movie; it had so many random elements to it that didn't fit together. The movie gave no explanation as to what was going on and to why out of the blue Carter was drawn into the lives of total strangers. When Sara practically commands her daughter to take Carter out and when they start having fun, Sara gets jealous and now they can't see each other. The plot made absolutely no sense and the story was just plain retarded. The only saving grace was Grandma Phyllis (She reminded me of my grandma to a letter), she was the only quasi funny person in the whole movie, or at least bearable. Stewart and Ryan try to help carry the movie but it just doesn't happen, I didn't feel any chemistry there. This is a late night nothing else on TV type of movie.
Overall Rating: 2 Stars (Phyllis is the reason for 2 and not 1). Re-Watch Value: None (Rent or Cable if you must see it).
