Richly enjoyable Robert Altman. Not for kids.

Much like the inexplicable tornado at the end that causes this film to truly derail...this blows.

Moves at hurricane speed for most of its 122-minute running time, but Gere deliberately underplays his character, providing the calm center that the story needs.

The ending is so supremely awful that whatever progress had been made up to that point was washed away by the film's obtrusively climactic storm.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

When Altman's ensemble pieces click the effect is invigorating. When they fail we're left with nothing to do but star-gaze. Gere, Fawcett, Hunt and company turn out to be beautiful ornaments on a dry, bland Texas sheet cake.

Dr. T and the Women may put off people who only look for action and a plot-by-numbers storyline, but should be seen by people who crave adventurous filmmaking.

Maybe the film's ambiguity is its message all along--that life is what you make of it.

Gere forgoes his notorious hunk reputation to perform his vocationally asexual and nearly celibatory best in this wry, hyperactive comedy.

'Dr. T' is not Altman's best work, but it is far from his worst.

The slightly anachronistic absurdity of the conceit -- the travails of a lone gentleman in a world of ladies -- gives the actors room to do some wonderful work.

While it's impossible to call anything fashioned by a man of Altman's skill unwatchable, there are times when this pedantic and dull effort comes close.

Dr. T raises some seductive questions ... and mixes them up in a madcap and outlandish blender swirl. Through the murk, it's often hard to see the movie's heart.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
January 1, 2000
What holds the stories and the characters together is the decency of Dr. T, and Gere seems wholly comfortable with the role.

It's a terrific showcase for Richard Gere, Shelley Long, Farrah Fawcett and a number of other actors who almost seemed to have been written off.

Without exception, every one of Dr. T's -- and thus Altman's -- women is either neurotic, needy, naked, or a lesbian. In other words, either a male fantasy or a male fear.

On the surface, Altman's film is clearly meant as a paean to the variety and emotional fecundity of women, but scratch the surface, and you realize that underneath, it's not so pretty.

There is never anything in the film to make you want to keep watching it. Not one thing about it is compelling or engaging.

An uneven string of random bits.

Lacks the resonance of a major Altman film ... but it's a funny and ebullient look at a man in full confusion.
