[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.

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.

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

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.

Ryan, Bening, Pinkett Smith and Messing play an unlikely foursome of friends, whose origins are never explained, who have nothing in common and no chemistry to speak of.

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

This is the movie Diane English fought to get made the last 15 years?

The Women is not perfect, and the best way to enjoy it is as a showcase for some of the top female acting talent of the day.

...a spectacularly dull film.

Everything has been smoothed out to the point of tepidity.

The classic 1939 film adaptation... worth seeing again and again. This is not.

I love women in real life but at the movies I hated The Women.
October 31, 2008
A lazy film that makes the most obvious points about the war between the sexes and, as a result, makes the characters much less interesting than they might have been.

I'm afraid I could neither laugh at, nor take seriously, most of this movie.

Containing as much wisdom as it does wit, English's sparkling screenplay takes what was a fairly shallow story and creates a snapshot of modern (albeit wealthy) women's lives.

Even a dream cast has to have the right material to work with. As well as a filmmaker who can bring out the best in them.
October 24, 2008
Actually quite an acceptable, enjoyable midrange chick flick that hasn't quite deserved the critical drubbing it has received in the States.
