More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    At times Reitman (adapting Chad Kultgen’s 2011 novel) can be a bit preachy and scolding about the pitfalls of surrendering one’s “RL” (real life) to one’s online existence, but just about any parent or any teenager seeing this film will empathize with any number of the interconnecting plot lines.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Jason Reitman's new film skillfully navigates through the personal melodramas of many characters with a nice sense of balance and a sharp appreciation of generational differences.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    There's enough compelling drama here to overcome elements of artifice. Men, Women & Children feels meaningful although perhaps not profound.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    What elevates Men, Women & Children considerably above a dramatized (and occasionally over-dramatized) lecture on the dehumanizing aspects of the Internet is the consistently high caliber of acting (including, yes, Sandler) and spot-on narration by Emma Thompson.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    The problem is there is just too much going on here for Reitman to pull that off and after an auspicious start, it all just, sadly, falls flat.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Kate Stables

    Reitman’s topical and melancholy drama is commendably ambitious. But its OTT plotting and alarmist tone make it a Reefer Madness for the Instagram generation.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    A huge improvement on the muddled melodrama of Labor Day, Men, Women and Children is still a flawed Jason Reitman film. Its scope is too big, his ambitions too high.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    There’s a good movie to be made about the alienating effects of modern technology. In 2013, a little-seen indie called “Disconnect,” starring Jason Bateman, came closer than this well-intentioned failure, which has virtually no heart, humor, sense of place or central point of view. In trying to be a big, important movie, Men, Women & Children is about none of the above.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The problem with Men, Women & Children — and it’s a big one — is that the movie isn’t telling us anything we don’t already know.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Men, Women & Children isn't a cartoon. It wants to be real, terribly. Instead, it's just terrible.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    To its credit, Men, Women & Children seems to allow for a rational middle ground between technophobic Luddites and the lamentably over-wired. It never turns down the moral panic entirely, but neither does it let it completely boil over.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    Reitman is a witty filmmaker, but here he seems a little disconnected, too.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Audiences could use a wise and probing movie about the meaning of our increasingly digital, techno-juiced lives.Men, Women & Children is about half that movie.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It’s one of those multi-character morality plays — think “American Beauty” meets “Crash” — and it will play especially well to freaked-out parents, even as it distances itself from them by acknowledging that the kids (most of them, anyway) are all right.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    All of it is plausible, if one were to break the narrative into its component parts; together, though, those parts resemble "Babel" or "Crash" or other determinedly topical mosaics that end up falsifying their own concerns.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    The problem isn't so much what the film is saying but its shrill, alarmist tone. You don't have to be a sociological genius to look at all of us walking down the street like zombies, obliviously staring at our smartphones, and know that something's wrong.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There are a TV season’s worth of soap opera betrayals, melodramatic traumas and blundering efforts to learn from and escape this media miasma.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Veering between alarmism and cautious reassurance — between technohysteria and shrugging, nothing-new-under-the-sun resignation — Men, Women & Children succumbs to the confusion it tries to illuminate.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half, like a less overblown version of “Crash” for the information superhighway.

    Variety Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Men, Women and Children is so married to the idea of humanity's insignificance that it presents support for that argument with its very existence.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    It's a shame Reitman goes down such a dull and tired road with his movie, because the cast give some really nice turns.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    Both heavy-handed and ham-fisted, this is a self-important morality tale where you can see everyone's uppance coming long before it arrives.

    Empire Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The real problem is that the film doesn't know what to do with its depiction of life in the interconnected age. It’s a nothing movie.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    The first Reitman film to make the 36-year-old director seem about 400 years old.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Both cautionary and comforting (yes, some kids today prefer conversation to cybersexting), Men, Women & Children is as anxious to seem contemporary as any after-school special.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    While many of the individual storylines are ludicrously melodramatic, building toward emotional meltdowns (and one suicide attempt), it’s the cumulative fear and loathing of everything digital that crosses the line into absurdity.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Men, Women & Children touches many nerves, but then pinches and twists them with its ham-handed approach to social commentary. I worry about Mr. Reitman, a filmmaker of consequence who is still too young to be so cosmic. Time to lighten up and come back down to Earth.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    A few steps further and Reitman might have turned Men, Women & Children into parody — at least that might have made for some laughs.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    In 2014, Men, Women & Children feels like a sermon. It's obvious and mundane, "Chopsticks" pounded on the piano.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Preacher Reitman won't be satisfied till we stomp our smartphones. LOL. WTF.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    A potentially interesting premise is handled so badly that what might have been a provocative drama quickly and irrevocably devolves into the technological equivalent of the old anti-dope chestnut "Reefer Madness," squandering the efforts of a strong and talented cast struggling mightily to make something of the ridiculously trite material. Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Not just narratively crude but aesthetically ugly, Men, Women & Children’s framing occasionally cuts characters off at the forehead, in effect lobotomizing them. I couldn’t think of a better metaphor for this brainless splotch of self-important scaremongering.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    Reitman clearly wanted to create a mosaic of sharp-edged shards held together by the mortar of art; with Men, Women and Children, what he's delivered is a group of broken bits mired in the morass of pretension.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    Jason Reitman fails to take into account any of the positive endeavors enabled by social media, which will no doubt be used to promote and market his film.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    To borrow a phrase from Patton Oswalt’s bit on a particularly monstrous fast-food creation, the film is “a failure pile in a sadness bowl.”

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    With Men, Women & Children and the equally laborious “Labor Day,” Reitman has gotten trapped amid the crumbling edifice of Hollywood. It’s turning him old before his time. Full Review
