Women in Trouble

Critics Consensus

Sebastian Gutierrez certainly has an eye for the beauty of the female form, but Women in Trouble lacks a compelling script or point of view to go with its curvaceous visual appeal.

Audience Reviews for Women in Trouble

    10 women got themselves in a variety of sticky situations. The stories were badly connected and the blue comedy didn't work as well as Gutierrez might have expected. The ensemble was great, featuring a talented cast of good looking people, but at times acting as distraction to the bland storytelling and thin material.

    High Hopes, High Anxiety, High Heels. Good movie! The film makes you laugh much more than expected, but keeps its heart in the midst of all the appropriately titled trouble. It's too real to just become a comedy or a tragedy or a drama, this film is an intoxicating blur of emotions. This movie basically ends up being about womanly camaraderie, and the bond that ties all women in all walks of life together, I think. However, it's also got enough sex talk, women in underwear, zany situations, and even a degree of bathroom humor, that'll keep guys interested. PS. Keep watching after the credits. There's a cute little satirical interview with the "porn stars", conducted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's not quite up to the level of the material in the rest of the movie, but still worth watching. Several women (and one girl) in L.A. are hiding something from someone else, or discovering something hidden from them. Maxine, a therapist, discovers her husband cheating on her with the mother of Charlotte, a 13-year old patient. Addy (the other woman) and her sister Doris have withheld from the girl the truth of her parentage. Holly, an adult film actor, isn't telling her friend Bambi how she feels about her, and another actor, Elektra, who discovers she's pregnant, hasn't told the baby's father that she loves him. A stuck elevator, a car crash, mid-air turbulence, a flight attendant, a shotgun-wielding bartender, and her roommate, who's a masseuse, help these women communicate.

    It's like the vagina monologues, but sexualized. This has an ensemble of bombshells looking and acting hot. I would say there's a problem here, but it's done so shamelessly that you kind've just go with it. The sense of humor is really unique and I liked the change of pace. The stories and characters are allowed to shine, due to the structure. This is made with the best intentions, to be fun and not take itself too seriously.

    I thought this would be horrible - but it wasnt. Adrianne Palicki was so funny! This movie is like one of those ones we've come so accustomed to seeing these days where its a bunch of people who are or are not all connected and we get a brief view of some aspect of their lives (see Valentines Day etc.). There were some moments that were boring, but others that were gold. Even some heartfelt moments, I suppose. Truthfully though, the most hilarious moment of this movie happened after the credits - it killed me! So for those of you going into this movie for the main reason of seeing Joseph Gordon Levitt, just know that he doesnt appear until after the credits. What did this movie teach me? Anyone can get a PHD. Make sure you get tested.
