The Women Reviews
The main problem this one has is that it is over long and has too many characters to warm to all of them, really it could have been an hour or so shorter and would have been better for it. My favourites here were Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer. I gave this an extra half star just for Joan and that bathroom she sets up for herself!
There are better old movies out there to watch, but this one definitely has it's moments and is worth a look.
*Phenomenal cast includes Rosalind Russell, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Hedda Hopper and Marjorie Main
A film famous for not featuring a single man on screen is certainly worth a look for curiosity sake but this luckily has more than novelty to offer thanks to some extremely funny one-liners that only a catty bitch can deliver!
The pace is at time frenetic with so many characters running in and out discussing their marriage woes but at the end of the day it is Rosalind Russell who steals the show for me. It certainly doesn't hurt that she got the most manipulative character of the bunch though.
And while I like Norma Shearer a lot it becomes hard to root for her character pining away to get her husband back. He cheated on you, lady! Move on!
