It was a great premise. Taking some great current talent and putting them in a comedy classic. Should have been rewritten by some gay men, or at least repeated word for word from the original.. If you haven't seen it, catch the original It was a great premise. Taking some great current talent and putting them in a comedy classic. Should have been rewritten by some gay men, or at least repeated word for word from the original.. If you haven't seen it, catch the original on dvd. It's timeless. How come the writers of Will and Grace weren't recruited for this one. Expand

If only I had read the reviews before seeing the movie. Debra, Meg, Annette, Jada, Candice Bergin, Carrie Fisher, Lynn Whitfield!!! How did all these women, successful actresses all sign up for this complete bomb. The trailer was way better If only I had read the reviews before seeing the movie. Debra, Meg, Annette, Jada, Candice Bergin, Carrie Fisher, Lynn Whitfield!!! How did all these women, successful actresses all sign up for this complete bomb. The trailer was way better than the movie and if you want to keep that feeling then don't see it. Should go straight to DVD. I'm sure it was intended but the movie came off silly and disjointed. It seemed to try so hard to be funny and at the same time tried to gather the best of all women filled shows and movies to make one great one but missed terribly. For example, Annette's character was very reminisent of Samantha Jones but not as good. There were a few heart warming moments provided by Mary's pre-teen daugther who seemed to be the only sensible, real character in the entire movie. Again, I understand it was suppose to be funny but it missed funny on the way to akward. Expand

Great cast, some great scenes, some great lines, some laughs. Not a great movie, but certainly not the worst I've ever seen.

To remake such a classic as The Women (1939) is not a good idea. You could never ever equal the cast of the original. It's not as bad though as the reviews I have been reading, the basic story is good and hard to mess up. But, it is so To remake such a classic as The Women (1939) is not a good idea. You could never ever equal the cast of the original. It's not as bad though as the reviews I have been reading, the basic story is good and hard to mess up. But, it is so pale in comparison to the original. Annette Bening is good, as is Cloris Leachman. I did enjoy most of it, but it compelled me to watch the original. Expand
