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. – Alexandra MacAaron, Women's Voices for Change, Dec 2, 2017

Fresh: It has charm, mischief, provocation, astringent wit. – Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, Dec 27, 2016

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. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, Dec 26, 2016

Fresh: Rebecca Miller's New York-set comedy-of-manners is far removed from the traumas of her earlier works. – James Mottram, South China Morning Post, Oct 17, 2016

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.
