Picture however holds passages that slow movement down to a walk.

The tagline says it's all about men, but this 1939 comedy is really a testament to the females of a certain era, and how they go about securing their comfort and happiness.

Isn't quite as nasty as it probably could have been, coming several years after the establishment of the Hays Code, but it's still plenty witty.

A pretty superb and remarkable film...

Every time The Women threatens to drag, there's always Russell and Crawford, towering over the cast with their cold stares and queenly hauteur, reminding us what being an A-list actress once meant.

It's the irrevocable women's pic of the 1930s.

Much of the dialogue is comic gold, with several risque quips somehow making it past the censors ("He could crack a coconut with those knees ... if he could get them together!").

a bitchy but endearing mix of comedy and melodrama. Norma Shearer holds the chaos together with improbable dignity.

Directed by Cukor with his trademark elegance, and proof of the filmmaker's famed ability to direct female actresses, this sparkling satire on backbiting, privileged women continues to delight.
July 9, 2002
An enduring favorite that features a constellation of top female stars (in an exclusively female cast) dishing the dirt on each other like there's no tomorrow.
April 1, 2006
An early, classic manifestation of the chick flick if ever we saw one, it achieves everything it sets out to.

Cukor's all-star version of Booth's stinging play is all about wisecracking cattiness of wives and mistresses (of the upper class), confirming men's suspicions of what women talk about when they are not around.

[Cukor is] at his best with a cast that includes Rosalind Russell, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Hedda Hopper, Ruth Hussey, Paulette Goddard, and Joan Fontaine.
September 11, 2008
The catty banter and Wildean aphorisms (some of them contributed by Anita Loos) are delivered with impeccable timing by a cast only MGM could have mustered.
