The Hollywood Reporter
Neither earth-shaking nor profound, but it has considerable charm, thanks to an appealing cast and some sharply witty observations about the pressures of child-rearing in Manhattan.

Parenthood seems only half aware of Eliza's REAL problem: that she thinks she's superior to the choices she's made.
50
When it aims for humor, it feels overwrought and clichéd.
50
The movie's narrative tension hinges on, well, nothing.

Variety
Though pregnant with possibility, Motherhood fails to deliver.
40
Motherhood doesn't really need a recession to call attention to its flaws. The movie's a perfect dud on its own terms.

If Carrie Bradshaw ever trades her Manolos for sneakers and starts blogging about raising children, I pray she wouldn't be as tiresome as the heroine of Katherine Dieckmann's insufferable comedy Motherhood.
25
Thurman is bespectacled again for Motherhood, and it saddens me to report that neither she nor this comedy turns into more than an argument against procreation.
20
Motherhood's litany of complaints and trite comedy-drama comes off as thin, and targeted, as a flyer for The Children's Place.
20
Time Out New York
It's a judgmental tale whose only payoff is carpe diem drivel.
