In terms of quality, Dr. T and the Women is one of Altman's good-but-not-great films. In typical Altman style, it features some great ensemble acting, including a wonderful performance by Richard Gere.

Movie Info

Director Robert Altman reteams with Cookie's Fortune scribe Anne Rapp for this tale of a Dallas gynecologist and the parade of anxious patients, haggard family members, and potential love interests who come his way. Richard Gere plays the titular role of Dr. Sullivan Travis, a calm, successful, and much sought-after ob-gyn who witnesses his normally stable life come apart over the course of one rainy autumn. As the film opens, Dr. T and his wife Kate (Farrah Fawcett) are preparing for the

Dr. T is vintage Altman, the best movie he's made since Short Cuts.

[Altman] and Gere, surrounded by various blondes in extremis, mostly keep it entertainingly rambunctious.

Has hardly any plot at all, or believable characters.

After the film wanders for two hours, growing more and more absurd, it ends in an extremely unsatisfying way.

Altman and his congenially matched screenwriter Anne Rapp wrap some stinging psychological and emotional observations in a beguiling package.

What holds the stories and the characters together is the decency of Dr. T, and Gere seems wholly comfortable with the role.

Richly enjoyable Robert Altman. Not for kids.

Much like the inexplicable tornado at the end that causes this film to truly derail...this blows.

Moves at hurricane speed for most of its 122-minute running time, but Gere deliberately underplays his character, providing the calm center that the story needs.

The ending is so supremely awful that whatever progress had been made up to that point was washed away by the film's obtrusively climactic storm.

When Altman's ensemble pieces click the effect is invigorating. When they fail we're left with nothing to do but star-gaze. Gere, Fawcett, Hunt and company turn out to be beautiful ornaments on a dry, bland Texas sheet cake.

Dr. T and the Women may put off people who only look for action and a plot-by-numbers storyline, but should be seen by people who crave adventurous filmmaking.

Maybe the film's ambiguity is its message all along--that life is what you make of it.

Gere forgoes his notorious hunk reputation to perform his vocationally asexual and nearly celibatory best in this wry, hyperactive comedy.

'Dr. T' is not Altman's best work, but it is far from his worst.

It was a sweet film with some bizarre touches in its satire of the bourgeois.

We're stuck, the movie seems to say. Men and women: this is simply how we are.

Not only a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying piece of work, but one of the better, more thought-provoking movies [Altman] has made.

An uneven string of random bits.

There is never anything in the film to make you want to keep watching it. Not one thing about it is compelling or engaging.

This relaxed drama rambles in true Altman fashion and boasts some delightful performances.

Audience Reviews for Dr. T & The Women

Though in no way comparable to some of his other works, I like to think of this as Altman's take on the "chick flick" genre. Featuring hilarious performances from Laura Dern, Shelley Long and Richard Gere.

Robert Altman movie is much more going on than just that: this is a multicharacter ensemble piece in which the large cast has been enouraged to improvise. The result is a rich, flavourful character study that will appeal to the director's fans and possibly make a few converts to his unorthodox style of storytelling.
