I watched this movie with 3 friends and we all loved it. It was enjoyable and clearly a great chick flick. I would recommend this to anyone that has best friends. Sit back, lift your feet and share a bowl of popcorn with someone you care about.

I just watched this movie and it was just ok. The acting was alright, but nothing great. It was a typical female movie where you can figure out what is going to happen. Meg Ryan is not my fav actress and she was not bad in it. I wish these ladies would stop having all this face work done though. They do not look like themselves any longer. This movie is not worth buying, just watch on PPV.

This was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. I took my Mom and she also loved. Don't understand all the negative comments.

This is the worst movie I've seen EVER in a theater! I was so excited by the cast and trailers that I went to see it the first weekend. Wanted to walk out before the halfway mark, but thought it just had to get didn't!

The Women is less about getting even than about inspiring that same mushy sense of female empowerment you might find in a Tyler Perry meller, complete with manic mood swings and full-blown diva moments. Full Review

A witless, straining mess. Full Review

Defanged and drippy, the remake of 1939's The Women seems to have been made for the dullard granddaughters of the sassy, sharp society matrons in George Cukor's campy original. Full Review

Very earnest, often engaging, but not quite as much of a pleasure as the original. Full Review
James Berardinelli
This is Diane English's directing debut, and it shows. Also in evidence is her familiarity with television. The movie is shot like a TV show, with frequent intercut close-ups. Full Review
