I love women in real life but at the movies I hated The Women. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- The problem isn't just the flat script by director and Murphy Brown creator Diane English. It's that this film's raison d'etre seems to be not to entertain, but to sell. Full Review

The 1930s original feels more cutting-edge than this re-do. Full Review

Despite its good intentions and high hopes, The Women is not a good movie. It does, though, have plenty of nifty slices. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- [A] fresh, revitalized script that while it celebrates women, still contains no men, retains the core story of Mary Haines who discovers her husband is having an affair with perfume spritzer girl Crystal Allen, but has its own unique twist. Full Review

Rating: B- -- The best fun in watching "The Women" is rating who still looks good and whose rose has faded (Carrie Fisher is almost unrecognizable), and ogling the frocks and heels. Full Review

Product Description:

Packed with an all-star cast, Diane English's (MURPHY BROWN) contemporary version of THE WOMEN showcases the talents of Annette Bening, Meg Ryan, Jada Pinkett Smith, Candice Bergen, and Debra Messing. Like the 1939 original, the film deals with the relationships among a close-knit group of female friends, who, when their marriages fail and their lives are on the verge of falling apart, turn to each other for support. On the surface, Mary (Ryan) appears the happiest of the bunch, but her life changes instantly when her best friend Sylvia (Bening) discovers that Mary's husband's having an affair. The actresses frequently appear on screen as an ensemble, exhibiting a relaxed, compelling chemistry. The film feels cluttered at times, but perhaps that is fitting considering how much each female character has on her plate with regards to family, work, marriage, and friendship. Eva Mendes appears as the jaw-dropping beauty who is partially to blame for the fallout of Mary's marriage. As Mary's mother and the voice of wisdom, Bergen delivers the film's best lines with sarcasm, wit, and charm.

As in the SEX AND THE CITY movie, the message here seems to be that before finding love with a man, a woman must truly love and know herself. While Mary's high-society social standing enables her to start a fashion line on a whim and makes her self-transformation somewhat easy, female viewers from all walks of life are likely to recognize something relatable in the many women characters driving the film. One nice touch is that while much of the drama surrounds various marital problems, even the cheating husband in question never appears on screen. When you get down to it, the film's most important relationships are between the women themselves.
