Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The humor is soft, the dramas are small, and the movie stumbles from loose and scruffy naturalism to sitcom tidiness. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: [Motherhood] not only overdoes its premise, but it's hampered by several flaws. When it tries to be serious, it's too earnest, and when it tries to strike a chord, it's banal. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Whiny and self-involved, Thurman's mother of two sees judgment around every corner and believes the universe has conspired against her because the bakery misspelled her daughter's name on a birthday cake. – Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: You can see the movie wants to comment on all the frustrations of urban motherhood, but it does so only shallowly. How did having children kill Eliza's "fiercely lyrical'' fiction career? The movie isn't that political or reflective. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Oct 30, 2009

I thought this movie was pretty good. I like the story line and Uma did a great job.

Great movie

This is one day when everything comes crashing together. If your a mom, and ever thru a party for your kids, you'll underdstand. There are alot of small moments that are just great. I loved it.


Normally this wouldn't be my type of movie but I decided to watch it. Uma Thurman did an amazing job. She always gets way into her role and
This film was no exception. I say hats off to Uma. She's great.
