In terms of quality, Dr. T and the Women is one of Altman's good-but-not-great films. In typical Altman style, it features some great ensemble acting, including a wonderful performance by Richard Gere. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Dr. T & the Women

  • Nov 15, 2011
    This is one of the funniest films from Robert Altman. The entire cast is terrific, Altman's overlapping dialogue is used perfectly, the huge ensemble cast that would make Paul Thomas Anderson would envy about, and I was fascinated with the women, particularly the relationship between Kate Hudson and Liv Tyler and it's interesting because Altman handles their personal bond with real honesty, maturity, and great humour. "Dr T. And The Women" is a real feel good picture.

    Though in no way comparable to some of his other works, I like to think of this as Altman's take on the "chick flick" genre. Featuring hilarious performances from Laura Dern, Shelley Long and Richard Gere.

    "Dr. T & The Women" is a very underrated film from Robert Altman. While it's far from his best work and the comedy is much broader than his other films from the 00s, it's still immensely enjoyable. At it's heart, this is a film about women and how wild and unpredictable they can be. The film ends with a tornado, so the symbolism can get a bit heavy handed. Thankfully, Altman uses his trademark overlapping dialogue to great effect and he pulls out some lovely and funny performances from all the women and especially an understated Richard Gere. Like we saw with "Nashville," "Short Cuts" and now "Dr. T & The Women," this is a film about a city. Altman understands what makes Dallas tick as much as he got Nashville and Los Angeles. Don't go into this film thinking it's a romantic comedy, like many do, because it's far from it.
