Jason Reitman's 5WorthWatchingWhen it comes to Jason Reitman's "Men, Women & Children," you can feel all the films that came before it (movies that tackled technological unease, marital stress, and burgeoning love), but he never goes out of his way to tip his hat to one film or another.

Still, when we chatted with the director recently, we had to get his #5WorthWatching when it came to the films that influenced his new comedic drama, which stars Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Dean Norris, and Judy Greer (among many others). Some of his answers might fall in line with the tone or atmosphere that "Men, Women & Children" struck, while others are agreeably out-of-left field.
