What makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong and left for Mr. Right? This simultaneously entertaining and enlightening comedy is a fresh, witty, and all-too-relatable look at the real-life science behind our (often regrettable) romantic impulses. Writer-director Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) stars as no-nonsense neuroscientist Julia, whose research into the biochemistry of the female brain is illustrated by three couples: newlyweds Zoe (Cecily Strong) and Greg (Blake Griffin), whose career troubles seep into their relationship; Lisa (Sofia Vergara) and Steven (Deon Cole), who are looking to spice up their stuck-in-a-rut marriage; and Lexi (Lucy Punch) who can't help trying to change her boyfriend Adam (James Marsden).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Its creators' hearts may be in the right place, but that's not enough to save The Female Brain from overthinking it. – Tatiana Craine, Village Voice, Feb 8, 2018

Rotten: The Female Brain is without evidence of critical thinking from anyone involved. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Feb 20, 2018

Rotten: Griffin, showing an easygoing charisma and sharp comic timing, is a slam dunk. Otherwise "The Female Brain" is mindless. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Feb 16, 2018

Rotten: By the time the film chugs to its nonsensical ending, it's become a very familiar feeling indeed. – Kate Erbland, indieWire, Feb 9, 2018

The Female Brain

Unnecessarily poor language.


Like, not that good.


Whitney Cummings is always amazing. Her movie is no different. Her ability to balance wit, humor, and actual information was nicely done.
