Storyline

Men, Women and Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose - some tragic, some hopeful - as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers. Written by Paramount Pictures

Goofs

18 minutes into the film, the narrator says, "On September 27th, 2013, after 36 years of space travel, the Voyager finally exited our solar system and entered uncharted territories." In reality, on September 12 of that year, NASA confirmed that Voyager I had left the heliosphere but that this had actually occurred on August 25, 2012. The narrator then goes on to say, "But not before taking this photo of Earth from 3.7 billion miles away." While strictly speaking this is true, the "Pale Blue Dot" photograph was taken on February 14, 1990 - over 23 years before the narration implies that it was, and shortly after which the Voyager's cameras were permanently deactivated to conserve electrical power for the remaining scientific instruments on board.

6 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Men, women and children is an intriguing movie about how the internet can influence our lives and what it can do to us if we stay in that 'world' for too long. There were multiple different stories in this film, all were great. Also the characters were all well developed and all have secrets that will make you question whether your own best friends have secrets and even your partner! The soundtrack was also very good and i really want to listen to it right now! The acting is great! Ansel Elgort is amazing, Jennifer Garner is also great. Jennifer Garner's character is all about protecting her daughter on the internet. She is paranoid that her daughter will come across a predator and she is just over protective. Adam Sandler is also great, he is addicted to pornography and has forgotten what it is like to be loved again. This film is great, I think it is a very under rated film which will be more appreciated as it ages.
