The Stepford Wives

Critics Consensus

In exchanging the chilling satire of the original into mindless camp, this remake has itself become Stepford-ized.

Audience Reviews for The Stepford Wives

    Pretty awful. I mean, I know some people like this as a kind of cult hit, but I definitely didn't enjoy it. Haven't seen the original at all but it's supposed to be good. This is just really dumb though. And there's something just really off about the whole thing. I know that the wives are supposed to be really strange, but that's not it. I just got some kind of strange vibe from the way this film is shot, directed. and acted. And it's not deliberate, per se. The one thing I really liked about this film is that it's got Christopher Walken in it. If nothing else, youtube his scenes from this film lol.

    This was supposed to be a sort of horror movie, let me just tell you it's not. The comedy is not there either. Summing it all up this movie was a mess, a shame considering all the great actors it had and you can really tell that they tried, but there are no miracles with a script this bad

    Weird film. Creepy how they controlled them like that and it was a great fictional story.

    The 1975 version is much better, but this version really surprised me. I had low expectations, but overall I enjoyed it. It's silly and cheesy in some parts, but it still has enough of the creepy elements to keep the audience interested. I prefer the dark mood of the old version more, but I thought the satire in this film was good. A different interpretation of the story is all. A good adaptation, overall. Very funny, i recommend it.
