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.

Sounds like a bad Almodóvarian television sitcom pilot.

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

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.

It's little more than an amusing sitcom.

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.

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

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

Leonor Watling is worth the price of admission all by herself.

There's a strong heart beating beneath the foolishness and one wonderful performance from Leonor Watling.

The fizz of playful sexual anarchy bubbles like spiked ginger ale through the comedy, whose two stars are veterans of recent Pedro Almodóvar films.

This first Spanish feature helmed by two women sidesteps the over-earnestness or high camp that hallmark so much gay-themed Hispanic cinema, and also provides the best showcase so far for actress-to-watch Leonor Watling.

Leonor Watling ... plays the spectacularly neurotic middle daughter with dizzying abandon and single-handedly saves the day.

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.

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