It's a joy. Altman does Dallas the way he did "Nashville" in Nashville or Hollywood in "The Player."
Altman and Rapp skirt the fine line between satire and caricature, stopping just short of ridiculing the women who pack Dr. T's office.
Altman orchestrates Dr. T's odyssey with the precision, heart and lively wit of a virtuoso.
A finely coiffed, cream-cheese "8 1/2" remix with Gere, a Marcello Mastroianni for Oprah Winfrey times.
A comedy of chaos, an ensemble comedy, with characters swirling around one another unaware, in their uniform desperation, of how funny they are.
Gere has never been better cast.
A jauntily entertaining ride.
The movie that pretends to celebrate women devolves into the complaint of a wronged man.
This would be an excellent movie from a first-time filmmaker, but from one of America's premiere directors, it's a disappointment.
