Critic Reviews of "Hanging Up"VarietyAugust 07, 2006
Three of Hollywood's most beautiful and talented actresses, Ryan, Keaton, and Kudrow, are totally wasted in this shamelessly sappy meller that bears the schmaltzy sensibility of Nora Ephorn, its inept producer and co-scripter even though Keaton is helmerLos Angeles TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Hanging Up has all the ingredients of a success -- a stellar cast, a promising premise, a strong production team -- but nothing comes together in satisfying fashion.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
At one point [Ryan] actually embraces a coffee vending machine as if it were a buoy in the rocky ocean of life. Is this a performance or a cry for a new script?New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
A screenplay that reduces deep emotions into low-cal, risk-free hissy fits that can be settled with a misty-eyed hug.Dallas Morning NewsJanuary 01, 2000

A real shame that this isn't a good movie.TheMovieReport.comDecember 27, 2009
A sappy, overly familiar enterprise.Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)June 18, 2003
The story bungles ahead pointlessly, mixing melodrama and self-help book affirmations.Kalamazoo GazetteJune 10, 2002
considering the movie's plot involves lots of crying over wrecked birthday parties and stolen stuffing recipes, most guys -- and more than a few women as well -- probably wouldn't want to know what they're missing.Spirituality and PracticeMarch 13, 2002
Speaks to the deep yearning we all have to break free from the assigned roles in our birth families.Laramie Movie ScopeJanuary 01, 2001
One of the very worst movies I've ever seen.
