The Women

"Shocked by the discovery that their pal Mary's (Meg Ryan) husband is having an affair with a beautiful young shop girl (Eva Mendes), a tight-knit circle of New York socialites comes up with a devious plan to help Mary win back her man. This remake of George Cukor's classic 1939 film boasts an all-star ensemble cast, including Annette Bening, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing, Bette Midler and Candice Bergen. "

I didn't actually rent this Netflix sent it to me by accident but I thought i'd watch it anyways - but it was alright it was slow and you were just waiting for the big climax and it never really came. and the thing that always drove me crazy is that they never showed the husband, not even his hand or voice, he was just this "thing" they talked about and plotted around and against. It was a typical Meg Ryan movie - although she does look really cute with curly hair. Jada plays a lesbian and Debra Messing plays this raggedy-always-prego woman.

  1. This pathetic remake was like Lifestyle channel Saturday afternoon made-for-TV drivel.

    What you need to watch is the original. The original original from 1939 with Rosalind Russell and Norma Shearer. It was scripted by Clair Boothe Luce and is positively brilliant.
