About the Movie
In Rebecca Miller's witty romantic comedy, Maggie (Greta Gerwig) is a vibrant New Yorker, who without success in finding love, decides to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), an anthropology professor and struggling novelist, she falls in love for the first time. Complicating matters, John is in an unhappy marriage with Georgette (Julianne Moore), an ambitious academic who is driven by her work. With some help from Maggie's eccentric best friends, married couple Tony (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: I can't express how satisfied I am that Maggie's Plan probably lacked the budget for a bigger name. The part and the actress are ideally suited for each other. Greta Gerwig deserves greater success.
Fresh: It has charm, mischief, provocation, astringent wit.
Fresh: Julianne Moore is terrific as the high-IQ wife while Greta Gerwig again shows her flair for these types of wistful independent urban comedies.
Fresh: Rebecca Miller's New York-set comedy-of-manners is far removed from the traumas of her earlier works.
Due of boredom
Watch this movie if you want to die of boredom. This is one of the worst movies I have seen in a while.
I used to trust rotten tomatoes (Within 20% or so). This is garbage. I rarely review but feel I have to redeem my stupid decision by helping you save your money - go spend time with your loved ones.
Slow, not funny, sad and a waste of time
