Critic Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)
Elvira, Sol, and Jimena -- named for women in the life of El Cid -- are so spoiled and blind to their mother's happiness that they're often thoroughly unpleasant.
Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.
Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.
My Mother Likes Women wants keenly to be hip and modern, but really it's just an old-fashioned drawing-room comedy.
It's a warm, sunny film that should remind viewers favorably of an early Aldomovar film, in which strong, beautiful, but slightly nutty women carry the day.
... it's nice to know that Hollywood endings aren't entirely in the straight domain.
A graceless film about hateful people...apart from some Prague scenery in the last act, My Mother Likes Women is thoroughly ugly.
Ines Paris and Daniela Fejerman's film does provide a measure of pleasure and a delicious premise that, wittier and less shrill, could be a terrific, timely and original remake for American audiences.
An aggressively silly take on subject matter that deserves more thought, but the performers -- virtually all of whom are women -- have so much energy and conviction you almost don't notice.
This is a Spanish treat! Not really about lesbianism, but rather a broad comedy about a neurotic twenty-something trying to make sense of it all.
...it's hard not to root for all these characters to get what they want.
Like a fourth-generation duplicate of an original--curiously pale and tired although straining for vivacity and color.
Skirts predictability and political correctness in equal measure, adding up to an entertaining night at the movies.
Starts strong but then degenerates into a sort of screwball comedy that doesn't serve its premise well.
Audience Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)
I'm surprised that this didn't receive more appreciation from the users. Here we have an elderly mom who has fallen in love with a woman rather than another man...and boy do her daughters react. I thought it was fascinating to see the diverse reactions and the actors clearly having fun exploring their characters.More
