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

In giving the 9/11 assignment the teacher says that "Other than the attack on Pearl Harbor it's the only time a foreign force attacked anything on U.S. Soil." That is incorrect. Even if you do not include the Revolutionary War you still have the War of 1812 where the U.S. was invaded by the British and the White House and Washington D.C. was burned. See more »

Shitty people blame the internet for their issues
23 September 2015 | by captainsandwonderlandsSee all my reviews

Highly disappointed with this film. Amazing cast, and i liked some of the director's other works but this movie was filled with one dimensional characters, boring script, pointless ending and in general crap. With all these white parents getting angry at their children for using the internet, and when in reality some of the parents make far wore decisions on the internet. It was filled with horrible high school clichés and even a cheesy high school fight. In this movie there wasn't a single character i was rooting for, i either felt bad for them or hated them. A constant reference to this "blue dot theory" as the film's way of trying to seem deep. Do not bother wasting your time as this film is another example of people angry at the fact that the internet has better qualities then they do, so lets all blame the internet for our first world problems.
