The problem isn't just the flat script by director and Murphy Brown creator Diane English. It's that this film's raison d'etre seems to be not to entertain, but to sell.

Despite its good intentions and high hopes, The Women is not a good movie. It does, though, have plenty of nifty slices.

Ryan, Bening, Pinkett Smith and Messing play an unlikely foursome of friends, whose origins are never explained, who have nothing in common and no chemistry to speak of.

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.

...a spectacularly dull film.

Everything has been smoothed out to the point of tepidity.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I feel bad for women that The Women is the kind of movie Hollywood makes for you.

English puts plenty of pithy one-liners in her characters' mouths, seemingly oblivious that the film's having-it-all feminist mantra was lapped by Ally McBeal and Sex & the City about a decade ago.

Not nearly as bad as I thought...but that's not saying much.
