It is difficult to me to determined whatever or not "In the Land of Women" is good or Wait for Rental. I'm glad that Meg Ryan returned to the big screen after a three year absent. Watching Meg smile on the big screen is one reason why I fall in love with this actress. The bad news is that I can't recommend this movie. I like the chemistry between Adam Brody and Ryan as the two walked down the street with her bulldog. If the forcus of the film iare on the two people, It would have been squeaked by with the recommendation. But there are too many characters who drowned out the film. I love to recommend the film on the basis of the chemistry between to two, but the movie has failed them, therefore I can't recommend "In the Land of Women." A close call.
I enjoyed this movie much more than I was expecting to. I watched about half of the movie one evening, thinking that I would return the following evening to finish it. If you've ever read a book and gotten about half way through, only to find that you can't put it down, you'll be familiar with my inability to walk away from this movie with only half the story told. I ended up returning to finish the movie because I wasn't able to quite get it out of my thoughts.
The lack of sleep was worth it -- this is a movie that I'll be sharing with others! It's possible that I'm giving the movie more credit than I should, but it hit the right spot with me. The relationships are more open than I think most relationships are between people.
Maybe it's that aspect more than any other that provided the pull that this movie did for me. Your mileage may vary.
