Critic Reviews for My Mother Likes Women (A mi madre le gustan las mujeres)

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (19) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (21)

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.

Full Review… | September 3, 2004
Boston Globe
Top Critic

A sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.

Full Review… | August 13, 2004
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

Less side-splitting than a sad reminder of the past.

Full Review… | July 9, 2004
Washington Post
Top Critic

Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.

June 24, 2004
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.

Full Review… | June 18, 2004
Toronto Star
Top Critic

My Mother Likes Women wants keenly to be hip and modern, but really it's just an old-fashioned drawing-room comedy.

Full Review… | June 18, 2004
Globe and Mail
Top Critic

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.

Full Review… | October 29, 2004
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Sounds like a bad Almodóvarian television sitcom pilot.

Full Review… | October 19, 2004
Planet Sick-Boy

... it's nice to know that Hollywood endings aren't entirely in the straight domain.

Full Review… | September 10, 2004

A graceless film about hateful people...apart from some Prague scenery in the last act, My Mother Likes Women is thoroughly ugly.

August 19, 2004
Groucho Reviews

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.

Full Review… | August 8, 2004
Film Journal International

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.

Full Review… | August 5, 2004
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Sardà never makes a believable lesbian.

Full Review… | August 5, 2004
Internet Reviews

It's little more than an amusing sitcom.

Full Review… | July 29, 2004
Las Vegas Weekly

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.

Full Review… | July 29, 2004
european-films.net

Likeable, not loveable.

Full Review… | July 9, 2004
E! Online

...it's hard not to root for all these characters to get what they want.

Full Review… | June 27, 2004
Reel Film Reviews

Like a fourth-generation duplicate of an original--curiously pale and tired although straining for vivacity and color.

Full Review… | June 20, 2004
One Guy's Opinion

Skirts predictability and political correctness in equal measure, adding up to an entertaining night at the movies.

Full Review… | June 20, 2004
Boxoffice Magazine

Starts strong but then degenerates into a sort of screwball comedy that doesn't serve its premise well.

Full Review… | June 19, 2004
San Diego Metropolitan

Almost no one in this film acts or reacts the way someone would on planet Earth.

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.
