In the Land of Women (2007)

1 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Ladies' Trite

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Another of Lawrence Kasdan's offspring scratches a directorial itch. Jonathan Kasdan's first film has a distinctive artificiality to it, as if someone from isolated privilege were trying to understand the problems of real people. His main character, softcore porn writer Carter Webb (Adam Brody), is a quirky Ferris Bueller-type who always has something witty to say. When his movie star girlfriend dumps him, he flits off to suburbia to live with his grandmother and finish his novel. There, he meets a woman with cancer (Meg Ryan) and her beautiful teenage daughter (Kristen Stewart). His cutesy wisdom apparently enriches their lives. Ryan, who re-appears here after a three-year absence, attempts to charm her way through her character's illness, but Kasdan's clueless psychological insight leaves her stranded.
