Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
The story centers on a group of gossipy, high-society women who spend their days at the beauty salon and haunting fashion shows. The sweet, happily-wedded Mary Haines finds her marriage in trouble when shop girl Crystal Allen gets her hooks into Mary's man.
We've all seen Raging Bull, Citizen Kane, Psycho and The Godfather, but sometimes, a film comes along that makes everything we know about cinema seem trite and insignificant. The Women is just such a film.
Never has a roller coaster of drama been so powerful, uplifting and beautiful. Meg Ryan puts Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger to shame as The joker and elsewhere Jada Pinkett Smith is a tour de force as the additional black person.
I just did a bit of a poo watching this. Inspirational.
So confident in its message (women are great, yah?) that it decides it is wise not to put a man on screen. At all. Also spends a long time preaching that every woman is beautiful, deciding to prove this by ending with a catwalk show, skinny models included. Vile. More on the site.
More about female friendships than the original which seems to be mostly about how catty women are and how much they need men.
I wish I could go back in time and rent something else from Blockbuster.
Rich white lady problems and Jada Pinkett Smith is a lesbian. Dross.
'The Women', originally a play by Clare Boothe Luce, was filmed in 1939 (with Norma Shearer as Mary Haines and Joan Crawford as Crystal Allen), in 1956 (as a musical, 'The Opposite Sex', with June Allyson as Kay Hilliard and Joan Collins as Crystal Allen), and now with Meg Ryan and Eva Mendes as Mary and Crystal.
The story has been slightly updated - Stephen regularly phones Mary's mobile, Sylvie (Annette Bening) is the editor of a fashion magazine, one of the circle of friends is a lesbian - but the basic premise (and that is the plus) is still there, complete with some scenes verbatim from earlier versions (especially the changing room confrontation).
There's also the mother giving words…
This movie is the equivalent of someone vomiting in your lap. A curse on Diane English and everyone involved in this horrible remake of one of the great movies (and plays) of our times. I almost swallowed my tongue watching the ass-tastic female stereotypes. WOMEN LIKE SHOES! AND YOGA!! AND MANICURES AND GOSSIP!!! All involved should be deeply ashamed.
Considering it doesn't have one guy in the cast, I actually didn't see what all the hate was about. It is what it is. About average.
Shrill and silly.
This feels like a more PC/realistics SATC (there are parents, multiple ethnicities, children with problems). Debra Messing is always a joy but her character is little more than a plot point, and the film is always a bit more fun when Jada Pinkett Smith is on as a lesbian who can well understand how Eva Mendes can ensnare a married man.

Hollywood likes to remake things when they run out of ideas (which is happening a lot lately). Some of them…
