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.
| Original Score: 3/4
Sounds like a bad Almodóvarian television sitcom pilot.
... it's nice to know that Hollywood endings aren't entirely in the straight domain.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 2/4
A graceless film about hateful people...apart from some Prague scenery in the last act, My Mother Likes Women is thoroughly ugly.
| Original Score: 0/4
A sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.
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.
Sardà never makes a believable lesbian.
It's little more than an amusing sitcom.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
Less side-splitting than a sad reminder of the past.
Likeable, not loveable.
| Original Score: B-
...it's hard not to root for all these characters to get what they want.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.
Like a fourth-generation duplicate of an original--curiously pale and tired although straining for vivacity and color.
| Original Score: C
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.
Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.
| Original Score: 2/5
Almost no one in this film acts or reacts the way someone would on planet Earth.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
