There's a fundamental flaw to this multi-strand social media-themed drama: it's told completely from the perspective of older people who are fearful about the possibilities, rather than the generation for whom electronic communication is the norm. It's well-made by director Jason Reitman (age 36) and his cowriter Erin Cressida Wilson (50) from the novel by Chad Kultgen (38), but it kind of misses the point that this is the future of human interaction. So younger (or more switched-on) viewers won't buy the cautionary message.
IR's set in Austin, Texas, where Rachel and Don (Rosemarie DeWitt and Adam Sandler) are each so focussed on finding space outside their marriage that they don't notice that their teen son Chris (Travis Tope) is hanging out with self-proclaimed slutty cheerleader Hannah (Olivia Crocicchia). Her best friend Allison (Elena Kamporis) is starving herself to be like her, spurred on by her mother (Judy Greer), who is doing everything she can to make Allison a star. Meanwhile, Patricia (Jennifer Garner) is desperate to control how her daughter Brandy (Kaitkyn Dever) uses small-screens, especially worried about her growing friendship with Tim (Ansel Elgort), whose father (Dean Norris) is annoyed that he has quit the school football team.
Oddly, the film seems to adopt the adults' fears as its central tone: the internet and mobile phone communications are potentially dangerous, addictive and isolating. But this makes the film feel more like a sermon than a set of intertwined stories. A far more interesting approach would be to explore how communication and relationships are shifting due to the influence of online media. Indeed, the generational aspects to the films various plotlines are the most compelling elements, with clashing points of view between grown-ups and kids. But audience members who believe that mobile phones and social media sites are the future will struggle with the way Reitman presents them as inherently troublesome.

One group of very different people - including popular high school teens and their less popular peers, and a married couple struggling in their relationship - is explored in a telling story of how social media has taken over various areas of people's lives. From love lives and infidelities to body image, the world of social networking has become a hub for public scrutiny and lack of privacy as the world flock to the net in order to gain acceptance and admiration, to meet potential partners, become famous, or even bully each other. 'Men, Women & Children' looks at the dangerous rise in the sharing of sexually explicit content, cyberbullying and other disastrous effects that the web has had on the Western world.

WAIT! Don't go anywhere...
At least let us explain ourselves. The world has turned against The Counsellor lately; negative reviews have flown in to the tune of a 34% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and people are ready to write off Ridley Scott’s directorial career. But at the risk of sounding contrary, there are a few reasons you should go and see The Counsellor tonight when it hits U.K cinemas. And here they are:

Spoilers. Spoilers that will ruin the best show ever made. You have been warned.
It’s difficult to fathom a world without Breaking Bad. From the formative earlier episodes to the wrap-up job done by the last half of the fifth season, we’ve come to love and care for Walter, Jesse, Hank, Skyler, Marie and Walter Jr. And Mike. Don’t forget Mike. But instead of mourning the passing of such a giant, it’s important to celebrate the brilliant times it brought us.
Breaking Bad was - and is - a behemoth of modern television. While The Wire and The Sopranos brought us the inner dealings of criminal gangs in New Jersey and Baltimore, commenting on social injustice along the way, BrBa provided a new landscape to romanticize – it was something truly original, borrowing enough tropes of writing gone by to remain familiar.

Breaking Bad is over, so what is to become of the show's stars?
We've seen the finale and mourned the loss of one of the most popular series of our time; we have Better Call Saul to look forward to but what is in store for Breaking Bad's stars?
Bryan Cranston at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Aaron Paul joked that he is desperate for employment, a day after the finale of Breaking Bad aired. The 34-year-old actor was walking along Sunset Strip in Los Angeles when he was caught by one of TMZ's reporters. When asked by the photographer if he was relieved that the show was over, in order to remove the pressure of being constantly asked by fans for insider details, Paul said he wasn't relieved as he now has to hunt for a job.

There are SPOILERS in this review of the final episode of Breaking Bad.
In many ways it didn’t matter how Breaking Bad ended; the journey was such that the show’s quality was undeniable. And if the journey ended like The Sopranos, Dexter or Seinfeld – i.e., caught up in a maelstrom of controversy and disappointed losers – then so be it.
It's sad to see them go, but what a way to go
But Breaking Bad was, and is, amazing.

How the Breaking Bad director twinned decline with dignity. Spoilers ahead.
We’ve invested so much time and love into the characters of Breaking Bad, so when an episode like Ozymandian comes along, it’s important to deal with their separate demises with a considered touch. They’re family now!
This was certainly the case with Hank. Starting the season out as a macho-man; the cracker of bad jokes; a rather sad character, but ending his run in the show as a true hero, despite people still rooting for the anti-hero. Hank represented a modicum of morality towards the end, and it was only fair to send him off with his head held high.
Spoilers ahead. Ridiculous spoilers. Don't read this if you haven't watched it.
Redemption can be a subtle thing. We’ve seen a heavy-handed approach in Hollywood blockbusters and the procedural crime shows that litter networks everywhere. But AMC, for all the gripping, fervent manoeuvres Breaking Bad takes, has a real beauty of modern programming on its hands. It’s subtle, when it needs to be.
The Breaking Bad cast at the premiere for season five
Ozymandias wasn’t just ‘Shakespearian’ as many lazy reviewers have suggested – the same adjective is applied to every episode – no; it was more than Shakespearian. This is a modern tragedy, built upon the foundations of literature cemented in time by the seminal playwright, but deserved of its own legacy, as television screens and box sets slowly marginalise stages and box offices.
