When Eve (Meg Ryan) isn't being pulled in a million directions by her own life, she's being sucked into lengthy phone conversations with her cranky father (Walter Mathau) or her two sisters, successful magazine entrepreneur Georgia (Diane Keaton) and career-challenged Maddy (Lisa Kudrow). As the family becomes more and more dependent on Eve, transforming her into the human switchboard that connects them all together, Eve discovers that the ties that bind can also be the ties that gag! Her revelation doesn't sit well with her sisters, though, forcing Eve to realize that sometimes to be heard, you just have to, well, hang up! From the novel by acclaimed writer Delia Ephron, producers Laurence Mark (Jerry Maguire) and Nora Ephron (You've Got Mail), and director Diane Keaton comes Hanging Up.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A smug, self-serving, charmless exercise in niche-marketed sentiment.
Rotten: Three of Hollywood's most beautiful and talented actresses, Ryan, Keaton, and Kudrow, are totally wasted in this shamelessly sappy meller that bears the schmaltzy sensibility of Nora Ephorn, its inept producer and co-scripter even though Keaton is helmer
Rotten: Hanging Up has all the ingredients of a success -- a stellar cast, a promising premise, a strong production team -- but nothing comes together in satisfying fashion.
Rotten: The only possible excuse for the new film Hanging Up has to be that it looked great in a deal memo.
great movie with a lot of heart!!! Diane Keaton is amazing!
In my opinion a really beautiful film that has terrible thoughtless reviews. I think I'm permanently going to HANG UP on rotten tomatoes. I adore this film and everything about it.
