It glides by on the notion that there is little that is still frightening about being an American woman. I wish I could say it was a premise whose time had come.

Comedic remake of '70s horror movie has sex humor.

There's not a single redeeming feature in this colossal over-budgeted waste of time...

As comedies go, it's actually fairly funny, albeit in a light, superficial way which either hides or exposes the fact that the plot is a thick tangle of mutual contradictions.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

The remake of The Stepford Wives is the gayest major motion picture ever made - and remember, I saw Troy.

In 1975, The Stepford Wives ... seemed creepy and socially relevant. Today, it just feels dull.

Absent the suspense and satirical thrust of its predecessor, The Stepford Wives is a star-studded, soft-centered piece of whimsy

"The Stepford Wives" is a terrific comedy, but a lousy motion picture.

Ao que parece, os realizadores de Mulheres Perfeitas acreditaram que o público seria tão dócil e manipulável quanto as esposas retratadas em sua trama.

There just aren't enough laughs to distract from the vast fault-lines in the story

For better or worse, Stepford Wives is classic Frank Oz. At times ludicrous and stereotypical, but always funny.

With its smart script and dead-on comic performances, it actually works.

Frank Oz has made a career of making comedy out of on-set tensions and his actors' personal anxieties.

As written by Paul Rudnick, who wields one of the cattiest pens in Hollywood, this new version of "The Stepford Wives" suggests he might want to try a fresh pot of ink.

This version quickly falls in and out of form, deviating from comedy to thriller...losing the social significance of the original.

A confused production, replete with weak jokes and embarrassing stereotypes, earn the film one star, but I'll throw in an extra half star for Kidman's engaging performance.

Oz's toothless vehicle is never able to capture the dark humor of its calculated convictions...has no apparent rhyme or reason to its meandering madness

The Stepford Wives willingly dispenses with a strong conceit in its unbridled urge to be ridiculous, taken here as a synonym of "entertaining."
