The shocking and hilarious novel of dating, sex, and distress in an average American suburb, now a major motion picture directed by Jason Reitman and starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, and Judy Greer

The only thing more disturbing than junior high school … is adulthood.

The story of one town’s complicated network of dating and sex, intimacy and disconnection, online and off—at work, at home, and in school—is now a major motion picture by Jason Reitman, the award-winning director of Up in the Air, Juno, and Thank You for Smoking. Reitman’s film—featuring a star-studded cast that includes Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Emma Thompson, and an attention-getting cast of young newcomers—is based on the novel by cult hero Chad Kultgen, author of The Average American Male, The Average American Marriage, and The Lie. The novel explores the sexual explorations of a handful of junior high school students and their equally dysfunctional parents. From porn-surfing fathers to World of Warcraft–obsessed sons, from competitive cheerleaders to their dissatisfied, misguided mothers, Kultgen clicks open the emotionally treacherous culture we live in.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dark, hilarious, but most of all honest, Men, Women & Children is an unparalleled snapshot of sexual politics in the age of social networking, one that reminds me of my first encounters with films like The Graduate and American Beauty.”

    Jason Reitman, director of Juno

  • “With The Average American Male and The Lie, Kultgen earned a cult following as an audacious, candid chronicler of broken hearts and pop culture. His new novel explores private obsessions and secret lives in the age of the Internet and reality TV…His observations into how people become corrupted and needy are funny and moving.”


  • Men, Women & Children explores all of the things that most Americans don’t talk about, and in the course of showing what happens when we don’t communicate with each other, it deftly exposes how we can be both tender and frightening, moving and bizarre, in one of the most beautiful ways I’ve seen outside of real life.”

    Stoya, star of Perfect Picture

  • “[Kultgen] speaks the voice of our generation very authentically. And you rarely see that in the media today.”

    George “Maddox” Ouzounian, author of The Alphabet of Manliness
