Men, Women & Children

Writer-director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air, Juno) adapts Chad Kultgen’s bestseller that examines the sexual frustrations felt by teens and adults through the perspective of today’s wired-up world. Stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, Ansel Elgort and Judy Greer.

A group of high school teenagers and their parents navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives - staring down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and illicit material.

You can’t have it both ways, Jason. You can’t set up a deeply contrived film, then refuse to conclude your film because life is messy.

Feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half, like a less overblown version of “Crash” for the information superhighway.

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

A huge improvement on the muddled melodrama of Labor Day, Men, Women and Children is still a flawed Jason Reitman film.

Skillfully navigates through the personal melodramas of many characters with a nice sense of balance and a sharp appreciation of generational differences.

The problem isn't so much what the film is saying but its shrill, alarmist tone.
