    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez seems to think his characters are oh-so-edgy, and maybe they would be -- if it were 1982. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Gutierrez's script can't supply female characters as believable as Almodovar's, but in the director's chair he gives his cast room to compensate with funny, self-aware performances. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    Delivers plenty of smart dialogue and devises a number of excellent reasons to photograph his cast in situations that suggest the working title for the film might have been "Women in Underwear." show more

    David Fear Time Out New York

    Even if Women in Trouble didn’t keep bringing to mind a superior artist, the film would still be badly written (DOA tangents about cunnilingus and kink don’t make dialogue edgy, only vulgar), not to mention unevenly paced and an embarrassment to all involved. show more

    Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times

    The sexual humor is often bawdy, and Gutierrez goes right up to the edge of camp. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    A wildly uneven but compulsively watchable mix of high camp and grand passions, soap opera and softcore sex. Very much in the deliriously lewd style of Pedro Almodovar. show more

    Melissa Anderson Village Voice

    Awkwardly mixes blue material with sob stories. show more

    Manohla Dargis The New York Times

    The amateurish production values might be pardonable if the clichés -- the hard-core porn star with the soft heart, the therapist who needs to heal herself -- inside the poorly lighted, badly shot images weren’t so absurd and often insulting. show more

    Scott Tobias The A.V. Club

    What does it all mean? Nothing much greater than the sum of its seriocomic vignettes. To that end, Women In Trouble tends to sputter to life whenever the stories get racy. show more
