    I am now a victim of modern day sexism, having read through the entire cast and crew list, I am fully offended, there weren’t even any men in the movie! I’m sure most guys feel the same. Women, you should be ashamed of your gender.

    In the kitchen scene with Annette Benning & Chloris Leachman? It looked like a stick of butter she was dipping into a tin of Hershey’s cocoa and a jar of sugar, but that would be silly. What was that?

    "I am the walrus, Dooku-Ka-Choo"

    cheers!

    This movie is quite simply painful. I’ve never seen Annette Bening so uncomfortable in a role. I had to turn this off, it was so bad!

    The script wasn’t nearly as clever as the writer thought it was.

    Bad, bad, bad writing.

    Anybody else notice that you never once see the husband during the entire movie. I noticed that after seeing it the second time. About the most you get is hearing his voice over the phone a few times but other wise there is no appearance by the husband at all, and yet part of the plot of this movie is his infidelity.

    You have to be in the right state of mind to watch this movie. I’m a guy, I usually watch what the guys watch, but now I’m in a place in my life where I really have a desire to understand women better. I’m using this as one of my aids.

    I’ve watched most of it, and so far, haven’t seen one guy in it. Looks like it’s another world. I’m just enjoying watching the women, listening to them. For the record, I love women and I have a lot of respect for women. I was getting so absorbed by this movie that there were times it was turning me on. This would have to be the ultimate chic-flick.

    If you watch her leave the perfume counter after telling Crystal off, you can see that she must have bent over some time before because her dress is tucked neatly betwixt her butt cheeks like it was filed there.

    Blecko!

    I’m trying to be optimistic here, but was anybody else annoyed by Annette Bening’s character? I don’t think it was so much of the character, but more so-of how she portrayed it. I felt as if she was trying too hard, and sometimes in acting that isn’t the best thing to do, what about you guys?

    I certainly don’t mind if there wasn’t a man in a speaking role in this film, many films were made with men only.

    What boils my blood is there is no men anywhere! Not in the background, hospital scenes, department stores, street scenes, etc………they made a point that men are total SXXX!

    I gave it a 1 and it bombed at the box office. GREAT!

    I just wonder how many women in this film hate men and have been divorced and are just plain bitter? It makes you wonder!

    Did anyone else feel that way? Four successful women in NY dealing with gossip, men and sex. And Meg Ryan’s hair looked like Carrie’s! I love SATC so of course I enjoyed this movie.

    Discuss.

    Funniest quote of the movie.

    I almost died.

    This movie had a lot of great one-liners. I was pleasantly surprised. I loved it. Kicked Sex and the City’s ass, IMO.

    1. Apparently the only store in the entire movie is Sacks

    2. Lesbians are scared to death of child birth

    3. 12 year old girls smoke cigs and think they are fat at 80lbs…duh.

    4. Always, always, ALWAYS take that cheating sonofabiiiiitch back…no matter what.

    I thought I try to give this film another chance and watch it on cable.

    The women in the original "The Women" were lethal but funny. They were rich and interested in fashion. Here Meg Ryan & Debra Messing both looked like frumps who haven’t seen a brush & comb in months. Messing’s wardrobe was especially horrid! The reason the original was so great was a standout performance by Rosalind Russell as Mary’s backstabbing bitchy friend Sylvia Fowler. Why was Annette Benning so nice? She was sleep inducing!! Because they changed Sylvia’s personality. In the original Sylvia sends Mary to get her nails done knowing she will find out her husband is cheating from the manicurist who is blabbing about the affair to all her clients. It ends the friendship and starts a war between them! In this garbage Mary just wanders over to get her nails done when she has to wait for an opening to get a haircut at Saks. From the moment Benning’s character started cooing the movie was utter crap! Meg Ryan has been playing the cutesy girl-woman for 20 yrs. Grow the hell up Meg your face can’t pull it off anymore! I can’t watch this crap again!

    *I can’t believe Diane English threw in the line Meg says to her mother when she tells her to pretend she doesn’t know about the affair: Mary:"What do you think this is, some kind of 1930’s movie?"

    They wish! Cuz this crap is super awful! They took a snappy, timeless movie and turned it into a slow, antiquated,whiny movie.

    I am really sick of this concept of women feuding with each other when one is having an affair with the other’s husband. Why the hell would you go after the adulteress, she wasn’t the one standing at the alter proclaiming their fidelity to you on your wedding day.

    Mega Ryan’s character was so incredibly unlikable. Her husband cheats on her so she decides to go buy some new lingerie to make up for it? Suddenly she 180’s and decides she wants a divorce, no counseling, no discussion, that’s it.

    Then suddenly she decides its time for a make over and to get her career started and that its perfectly fine to ignore her daughter (who decides to burn tampons??). For some reason their relationship is resolved by the mother’s success (achieved by ignoring her daughter).

    Yes, what a strong and independent woman she is (especially when she mentions how she hopes her daughter will be by her side when she’s getting her own face lifts in the future), living in her husband’s giant house and leeching off of his alimony.

    I understand this as a comedy, but at the same time there is a very obvious ham-fisted message about the importance of being a strong and independent woman. Meg Ryan’s character was neither of things, and a sh!tty parent to boot.

    i did not like this movie at all. i wanted to enjoy a good chick flick and this movie was so boring. also, no offense most of the actresses looked cosmetically altered, except maybe debra messing, and that really distracted me. it was hard for their acting to seem real. i don’t know whether this was supposed to be funny or just sarcastic or if i was supposed to feel sympathetic towards any of the characters.

    I want the two hours of my life back.

    This movie feels like it was packed with big names with no story. It depended on the names to bring in audiences to it along with trying to give every character a story. That was not necessary!

    There have been very good films with big name actors that don’t have big lines or stories but it works, on this one it just didn’t.

    I hated how the only male shown in this movie (the baby) is shown as being held high and glorified, that completely condradicts the message the director wanted to give.

    Just bad.

    There was no question in my mind that this remake was going to fall flat on its cinematic rear end. And so it did, big time.

    Has no one in Hollywood ever noticed that, when a really excellent film gets remade years later, it can never live up to the original?

    A few years back, they were talking about remaking "Casablanca" and using Ben Affleck and J-Lo in the roles originated by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Someone in charge must finally have seen the light — the remake was shelved and I hope it stays that way.

    Remember the original film adaptation of the Broadway musical "The Music Man" from 1962? It starred Robert Preston in the title role and Shirley Jones. Disney did a made-for-TV remake a few years back starring Matthew Broderick and Kristin Chenoweth. No one in the remake could compare with their counterparts in the first film. Matthew Broderick’s rendition of "We’ve Got Trouble (Right Here in River City" was completely lackluster compared to Robert Preston’s.

    You might not hear a lot of Barbra Streisand fans say this, but speaking as a Streisand fan, I couldn’t figure out why she needed to do that remake of "A Star is Born" with Kris Kristofferson as the male lead. They’d already remade it once before with Judy Garland and James Mason. I remember a lot of people called the second remake "A Star is Boring."

    (By the way, there was this godawful musical movie called "The Opposite Sex" that was based on "The Women." It’s right up there with "High Society" (based on "The Philadelphia Story") and the musical film version of "Lost Horizon" for bad news with music, but I guess a musical adaptation isn’t precisely a remake, is it?)

    Someone once told me they were thinking of remaking "The Wizard of Oz" with the same music as in the 1939 version, but I think that person was just trying to see how annoyed I’d get. The story was supposedly they wanted to do it in wide screen and stereo this time around.

    So, just for fun, please share here your pet peeves among movie remakes. You know, remakes you’ve seen that couldn’t possibly have stood up to the original versions, so why did they bother?

    The preview of this movie made me think something completley differen then what i just saw.

    I get the whole idea of the movie, and if it was executed properly, it would have been really good. But they just messed up a really good idea, and it just rates a 4 for me. I wouldn’t watch it again, and I think this is one of the first movies I’ve watched that I have said that about. It reminded me of a mix between, "Sex and the City" & "The first wives Club"

    Ahh well, what do you all think?

    When you study beauty therapy one of the most important things like a doctor is confidentiality you’re just not allowed to spread other peoples personal information. If someone willingly gives you information it stays secret. A gossipy unproffesional woman like that would not be working for a company like saks!!So this is an unrealistic part of this re-make!

    What happened to the delicious, gossipy, nosy, back stabbing Sylvia that Ros Russell portrayed so brilliantly? Now she’s a serious career girl with a conscious? GMAB

    And the sad thing is, Annette Benning could’ve done a terrific job in the role. What a waste.

    I was impressed with it. What was so bad about it exactly? Kinda reminded of the First Wives Club with it’s directing and feminine humor.

    In the scene in the kitchen, just after Mary has the fight with Steven, and she is looking for junk food while she tells the house keeper, what does she end up eating?? I get that she is dipping something in chocolate and sugar, but what is she dipping?
