The 1930s original feels more cutting-edge than this re-do.

This is the movie Diane English fought to get made the last 15 years?

The Women is not perfect, and the best way to enjoy it is as a showcase for some of the top female acting talent of the day.

The classic 1939 film adaptation... worth seeing again and again. This is not.

I love women in real life but at the movies I hated The Women.

A lazy film that makes the most obvious points about the war between the sexes and, as a result, makes the characters much less interesting than they might have been.

I'm afraid I could neither laugh at, nor take seriously, most of this movie.

Containing as much wisdom as it does wit, English's sparkling screenplay takes what was a fairly shallow story and creates a snapshot of modern (albeit wealthy) women's lives.

Even a dream cast has to have the right material to work with. As well as a filmmaker who can bring out the best in them.

Actually quite an acceptable, enjoyable midrange chick flick that hasn't quite deserved the critical drubbing it has received in the States.

If you don't take it seriously -- and I don't think it's meant to be taken seriously -- there is enjoyment to be had from these contemporary women.

Any film about a group of women -- friends or not -- gets my attention. Fireworks are guaranteed. Sure enough, Diane English makes her feature debut with a classic, filling it with a ripper cast, each of whom adds their weight in TNT to the detonations.

A juicy exploration of women's roles in the 21st century -- at work, at home and in the bedroom and although men figure in the storyline (natch), it is women-only who grace the screen. Three generations of them.

Meg Ryan is really good in this, but besides that THE WOMEN is a chick flick that's the very reason why guys hate them.

"The Women" is a grand old dame that shrugs off time as easily as signing a credit card receipt.

While The Women provides an evening of laughter and some points to ponder, relationships work only when all involved are willing to sacrifice for one another.
