Entertaining but over-rated.

I am apalled at the sexually explicit scenes in this could have been wonderful movie. Anyone else share my opinion???

I hoped this movie would be a knock out because of Pfeiffer and Kathy Bates but I found it a dreadful bore. The visuals were great and the costumes fabulous but the story while a simple one was stupid and a real snooze. I had hoped this would be a super chick flick and just found it to be a turkey instead. Kathy Bates was the best in the film I feel she will get a supporting nomination for

Really a superb flic. Pfeiffer is faboulous in the part, Great visuals - a really complex and interesting story about life - as true today as when Collete wrote the story. Pfeiffer is certainly Oscar worthy.

Great movie. Michelle Pfeiffer was brilliant. Hope this is the year she is finally given her long awaited Oscar. And at 51, Michelle Pfeiffer is still beautiful. Kathie Bates was great as usual. Movie had it all, laughs, romance. Must see.
