Critic Reviews for The Woman in Red

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

Writer-Director Wilder has fashioned an ironic, worldly, yet sternly moral comedy that gives an energizing twist to every farcical convention and finds the perfect timing for every rubber-faced reaction to calamity.

The project as a whole is a lot less mawkish than we've come to expect from Wilder's directorial efforts. Still, it ain't exactly state of the art.

Mar 23, 2015 | Full Review…

The laughs roll along readily as Wilder tries one idea after another to sneak out on wife Judith Ivey and family to rendevous with Le Brock.

[A] broad, unfunny Hollywood remake of the broad, only vaguely funny French original Pardon Mon Affaire.

Jan 26, 2006 | Full Review…

Fortunately, most of the film is more appealing than its premise.

Aug 30, 2004

Wilder is at his frantic best, ably supported by the likes of real-life wife Gilda Radner and Midnight Run's Charles Grodin.

Audience Reviews for The Woman in Red

Kelly Le Brock stars as The Woman in Red in this formulaic and stereotypical '80s rom-com. Written and directed by Gene Wilder, the film follows a middle-aged family man who becomes infatuated with a beautiful model, but the infatuation soon starts to cause problems with his career and his family. Aside from Le Brock and Wilder, there are a number of talented comedic actors in the cast, including Gilda Radner and Charles Grodin. But the film is incoherent, and nothing is really achieved or learned by the characters. There are funny moments here and there, but The Woman in Red is a forgettable and unremarkable comedy.

Interesting dramedy. Great acting by Charles Grodin.

Gene Wilder directs himself in this "comedy" about marriage. He does a pretty good job, but for the most part it isn't all that funny. Overall, it's okay.

Tacky 80s farce in which middle aged exec Gene Wilder suffers a mid life crisis and sets off in pursuit of a model. Sleazy and desperately unfunny.
