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.

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

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.

The cast is mostly strong and its clumsy charms substantial -- enough to make this flawed cautionary tale worth watching, as long as your expectations aren't too high.

Fitting that a horror film from the 70's is now remade as a slightly less scary satire for the new century.

It has a wonderfully wounding malice directed at both the Stepford, Conn., contingent of Energizer Bunny wives and the New Yorkers who have just moved in.

This could have been a nearly great film, but instead it's an enjoyable mess that sometimes stretches itself to boast a degree of social relevance and truly-biting satire.

The original thriller was accidentally campy, while Oz's film is very much in on the joke.

Don't try to figure the logic of the ending. Just sit back and enjoy a funny movie.

Whatever behind-the-scenes problems there were are not apparent on the screen, and enough things work to make the film worthwhile.

The moral of this story makes perfect sense: perfection doesn't work.
June 11, 2004
A great Provincetown drag show of The Stepford Wives.
June 11, 2004
Before it degenerates into a complete mess, it's an entertaining mess, and something about its willingness to please maintains the audience's goodwill throughout.
