DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy Drama - Despite the ad campaign, this is not a big teen appeal movie but a more of an adult-appeal drama. But as the title suggests, this is primarily one for a female audience, and fans of star Adam Brody will get their fill here. Meg Ryan isn't the focal star here, but her fans will be happy to see her back on screen after a long absence.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good It's the kind of production that's pleasant to watch because it allows viewers to spend some time with believable characters who face 'regular' problems, but do so without becoming boring or overly familiar.

USA Today Full Review
Good Much of the film is lighthearted, with winning dialogue. It stumbles in its moments of pathos, which drift alarmingly toward the sentimental, but then pull back.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 54 moviegoers:
TEENS:Three-quarters enjoyed it very much. The remaining quarter thought it was average. Recommended.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two in this age group loved it.
ADULTS:These opinions aren't bad but they also aren't great. A few of the males and females really enjoyed "In the Land of Women" and several more thought it was "Very Good." A few more thought it was average and the last few rated it below average. Chances are you will feel this movie is enjoyable, at least to some degree, but the opinions aren't strong enough to recommend paying full price for a theater ticket to see it. A matinee maybe.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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. Unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be.

When Carter is dumped by Sophia in a North Hollywood coffee shop, he sees his entire life flash before his eyes. Heartbroken and depressed, Carter escapes Los Angeles, heading across the country to suburban Michigan to care for his ailing grandmother (OLYMPIA DUKAKIS). An eccentric and complicated personality, Grandma offers Carter a uniquely different perspective on life and especially death.

Soon after his arrival, Carter stumbles into the lives of the family living directly across the street, Sarah Hardwicke (MEG RYAN), the mother of two daughters: Paige (MAKENZIE VEGA), a precocious, effervescent eleven-year-old and her older sister Lucy (KRISTEN STEWART), an angst-ridden teenager. While Sarah faces her own personal crisis, Lucy wrestles with the fears that define her. Through his relationships with these women, as well as his grandmother, Carter begins to discover that what felt like the end was really only just the beginning of his adventure....
