If you find her (Ryan) distinctive persona to be too irritatingly cute to bear, this mannered movie is likely to play like fingernails on a blackboard .
Imagine "King Lear" art-directed by Martha Stewart and you have Hanging Up.
New York Daily News
Characters seem phony.
It's hollow, forced and false.
This is basically a movie about one neurotic woman and her neurotic L.A. life. .
Los Angeles Times
All the ingredients of a success--a stellar cast, a promising premise, a strong production team--but nothing comes together in satisfying fashion.
So drippy it really should be hung out to dry.
San Francisco Examiner
Too screwy to be really funny.
That we are supposed to find something to admire in this callow crew is insufferable.
Essentially an extended cutesy session.
