Critic Reviews for Female
The Chatterton character's appetite for sex is large: She cherry-picks the men in her factory and invites them to her spectacular home for business meetings that turn into seductions. When she's ready, she tosses a pillow onto a fur rug on the floor.
This slick romantic comedy offers 'the before its time sophisticated concept' that a woman can run a large company.
Female is more than just a museum piece from that short era after the introduction of sound and before the enforcement of the Hays Code; it's a strangely involving, patently absurd, wildly entertaining movie.

Audience Reviews for Female
Starts out zesty and modern and is quite entertaining until the cop out ending.
Ruth Chatterton is a trail blazing feminist with the hots for George Brent. An atypical romance that becomes decidedly typical as it progresses.
A woman runs a factory after her father's death, which was highly unusual for the 30s. She treats men the way men treat women, which to her means with little respect and only to get what she wants from them. That part of the movie was interesting, but then she falls in love and the movie ends in a predictable manner.
