Queens

Critics Consensus

It hints at something greater, but ultimately, Queens lacks the substance necessary to set it apart from similarly themed Spanish comedies.

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (17)

  • The star-heavy cast, which includes such big Spanish names as Carmen Maura, Marisa Paredes and Veronica Forque, are a treat to watch even when their dialogue isn't all it could be.

    October 6, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • The frantic artificiality of the script rarely allows the characters to breathe. This is dinner-theater farce, featherweight and juiceless.

  • It feels like [Pereira] just plucked the men themselves from atop a wedding cake and stuck them in his movie, where for the most part they stand decoratively around and watch the women make suds from all this soap.

    September 22, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • With what amounts to 20 characters crossing paths, Pereira's job description might seem more traffic cop than director, but he rises to the challenge and adds style and splashy color to boot.

    September 15, 2006 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Spanish director Manuel Gomez Pereira certainly draws inspiration from his compatriot Pedro Almodovar -- several of the actresses are even Pedro alums -- but the film falls short of Almodovar's usual depth and complexity.

Audience Reviews for Reinas (Queens)

  • Jul 28, 2009
    Drenched in telenovela but enjoyable and silly.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Queens" is an appealingly glorious mess of a movie that is not helped out by an overcomplicated chronological structure. As gay marriage is becoming legal in Spain, Helena(Mercedes Sampietro), a judge, is reluctantly set to preside over a ceremony of 20 gay and lesbian couples, not the least because her son, Hugo(Gustavo Salmeron), is marrying Narciso(Paco Leon) in that ceremony. Miguel(Unax Ugalde) and Oscar(Daniel Hendler) & Jonas(Hugo Silva) and Rafa(Raul Jimenez) are two other couples featured but the overall focus of the movie is squarely on the parents, especially in the case of Jonas and Rafa. This approach takes something away from the movie because it is the grooms' day first and foremost, not the parents'. And I am all for good roles for older women especially if it involves Carmen Maura but this is not really the right place...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Queens" would have been much better if it had focused on just one couple or if it had been made as a documentary. At the very least, a lesbian couple could have been included for diversity's sake.[/font]
