It's a warm, sunny film that should remind viewers favorably of an early Aldomovar film, in which strong, beautiful, but slightly nutty women carry the day.

Sounds like a bad Almodóvarian television sitcom pilot.
September 10, 2004
... it's nice to know that Hollywood endings aren't entirely in the straight domain.

Elvira, Sol, and Jimena -- named for women in the life of El Cid -- are so spoiled and blind to their mother's happiness that they're often thoroughly unpleasant.

A graceless film about hateful people...apart from some Prague scenery in the last act, My Mother Likes Women is thoroughly ugly.

A sometimes cloying mix of screwball comedy and drama.

Ines Paris and Daniela Fejerman's film does provide a measure of pleasure and a delicious premise that, wittier and less shrill, could be a terrific, timely and original remake for American audiences.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press
August 5, 2004
An aggressively silly take on subject matter that deserves more thought, but the performers -- virtually all of whom are women -- have so much energy and conviction you almost don't notice.

It's little more than an amusing sitcom.

This is a Spanish treat! Not really about lesbianism, but rather a broad comedy about a neurotic twenty-something trying to make sense of it all.

Less side-splitting than a sad reminder of the past.

Offers some pleasures along the way, including an engaging performance by Leonor Watling.

Like a fourth-generation duplicate of an original--curiously pale and tired although straining for vivacity and color.

Skirts predictability and political correctness in equal measure, adding up to an entertaining night at the movies.

Jean Lowerison
San Diego Metropolitan
June 19, 2004
Starts strong but then degenerates into a sort of screwball comedy that doesn't serve its premise well.

Despite the promise of its title, this is a movie that skirts the issues of gay relationships at every turn.

Almost no one in this film acts or reacts the way someone would on planet Earth.
