    A poor film. I realize the omission of any male cast was a deliberate stylistic decision, but it becomes conspicuously obvious and A poor film. I realize the omission of any male cast was a deliberate stylistic decision, but it becomes conspicuously obvious and ostentatiously overt when they're walking down the street and there isn't even a single male extra walking along a public sidewalk. So much so that I have no idea what they were even talking about, as I was too focused on the absence of 50% of the population. They might well have blared THX-style "THERE ARE NO MEN IN THIS FILM!" Regardless, this must be the ultimate chick flick, since there are only chicks and only the chick point of view, which makes it inherently unbalanced. I was under the impression this was supposed to be a comedy film, but I kept waiting and waiting for the funny, but it never came. So I figured it must be a drama, but then what person really wants to see a bunch of privileged upper-upper-middle class women whining about their petty little lives. Was I supposed to like any of them or be sympathetic to them? Because they were all inherently unlikeable. Not to mention making themselves completely powerless. Meg Ryan goes in with the notion of kicking Eva Mendes' ass, and I thought, cool, it'll get interesting, but instead she just has a whine. I mean, jeez. This is your idea of kicking ass? In any event, it makes me glad that I'm gay, since if there is even a modicum of reality in this dreck, I am so thrilled that I dodged a bullet and will never have to put up with the sort of mindless crap shown in this film. Feminist? I guess so. Poor movies shouldn't be confined to just male-oriented ones. FAILure should always be an equal-opportunity phenomenon. DO. NOT. WANT. Full Review »

    " A definitely laugh-out movie" ok to be honest i did not see 1939 version of the women, but this one has funny laugh out moments that Diane" A definitely laugh-out movie" ok to be honest i did not see 1939 version of the women, but this one has funny laugh out moments that Diane English gives characters the best lines in this movie. 'The Women' has "women" jokes a-lot of them, but its ok this movie is mean't for women. i get it, Meg Ryan is in this movie along with Annette Bening, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith all of these women give good with great humor, also good performances.
