Richly enjoyable Robert Altman. Not for kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Much like the inexplicable tornado at the end that causes this film to truly derail...this blows.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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.
| Original Score: 5/10

Gere forgoes his notorious hunk reputation to perform his vocationally asexual and nearly celibatory best in this wry, hyperactive comedy.
Full Review| Original Score: 8/10

'Dr. T' is not Altman's best work, but it is far from his worst.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

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

An absolute mess.

We're stuck, the movie seems to say. Men and women: this is simply how we are.
Dustin Putman
January 1, 2000
Not only a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying piece of work, but one of the better, more thought-provoking movies [Altman] has made.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

An uneven string of random bits.
Eric D. Snider
January 1, 2000
There is never anything in the film to make you want to keep watching it. Not one thing about it is compelling or engaging.
Full Review | Original Score: F

On the surface, Altman's film is clearly meant as a paean to the variety and emotional fecundity of women, but scratch the surface, and you realize that underneath, it's not so pretty.
Top Critic
January 1, 2000
Without exception, every one of Dr. T's -- and thus Altman's -- women is either neurotic, needy, naked, or a lesbian. In other words, either a male fantasy or a male fear.

Dr. T raises some seductive questions ... and mixes them up in a madcap and outlandish blender swirl. Through the murk, it's often hard to see the movie's heart.
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice
January 1, 2000
This relaxed drama rambles in true Altman fashion and boasts some delightful performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

While it's impossible to call anything fashioned by a man of Altman's skill unwatchable, there are times when this pedantic and dull effort comes close.
