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 sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.

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.

No matter how hard My Mother Likes Women tries to be witty and insightful, it emerges Almodóvar Lite.

It may be the most heterosexually minded film about lesbians ever made.

It's trying so hard to be a crowd-pleaser that it never stops to think that you might want to find its characters' behavior believable.

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.
