Wilde himself would have rolled his eyes at Mike Barker's shallow effort to spiff up the play for transatlantic markets.

The source material and supporting actors make A Good Woman a fairly good movie. But the performances by Helen Hunt as an aging seductress and Scarlett Johansson as a young bride are closer to mediocre.

AS IF Helen Hunt could ever steal a guy away from Scarlett Johansson

Without an incisive satirical tone and with the shift of both period and location, 'A Good Woman' loses its bite.

Except for the expert Tom Wilkinson as Tuppy, a wealthy swain of Stella's, the acting ranges from amateurish to atrocious.

February 2, 2006
The movie's attempt to update the play from Victorian England to 1930s Italy is so clumsy, tedious and pleased with itself that you wish Wilde himself would return from the dead to fire a few cogent, lethal bon mots at its backside.

The film has been relocated from 19th century London to Italy's Amalfi coast in the 1930s, the resort backdrop and the randiness of the female characters giving the enterprise a sort of 'Girls Gone Wilde' feel.

All the fun in A Good Woman occurs off in the corners, while the action in center-frame does little to capture your fancy.
