Gutierrez's story is structurally clichd ... but, worse still, his characters are uniformly unbelievable and two-dimensional.

It's not pornography, but it evokes that same uneasy feeling that you're watching something that's so wrong but so right at the same time.

In the "whatever were they thinking of" genre, a new entry: Women in Trouble.

A lucky alchemy of writer and cast turns what could have been an indie bore into something surprisingly uproarious.

A good look at men dealing with women and a good look at the supposedly soft side of porn doesn't make a good looking film.
Nov 15, 2009
A tedious dramady about an unappealing group of women in Los Angeles.
Nov 13, 2009
A sprightly, sexy, campy and outrageously funny ensemble comedy that's best watched with an open mind and a large audience for maximum enjoyment.

The film has already reduced itself to an empty exercise in campy, color-bathed titillation, as a gaggle of women are defined by their sexual drives and abilities without comment from the filmmaker.

This forced, charmless multi-character movie pretends to show women in all their glorious variety, but it really just traffics in the same old cliches.

Apparently, in Gutierrez's mind, expanding the range of humanity available to women on film means they can be porn stars or prostitutes...and they can be catastrophically dumb...

Mr. Gutierrez, as suggested by all the dcolletage, appears to be a breast man. Too bad he didn't set his sights higher.

It's a film with undeniably gorgeous parts that never quite develops into a sum.
Nov 13, 2009
Unlikely accidents, shared secrets and zany twists combine to whip up a pleasing froth.

The most jeopardy these women confronted was the day they said yes to Women in Trouble.
Nov 12, 2009
Unfortunately, while it is a great idea for a sketch, or a web series, it's not a movie length idea.

Penthouse Forum meets Pedro Almodvar in this frantic slice of trash-masquerading-as-class.
Nov 12, 2009
Too much of Women In Trouble settles for banal instances of infidelity, female bonding, or psychoanalysis when it needs to keep the action going. It's fine to be inconsequential, as long as the charged-up frivolity never stops.
Nov 11, 2009
The attractive cast, notably the earthy Gugino, tries hard to invest the one-note characters with a degree of humanity, but are betrayed at every turn by the thin material.
Nov 11, 2009
The film borrows beaucoup Almodvarisms -- multilayered hysterical heroines, a singular homo-ironic aesthetic -- and reduces them to Podunk wink-wink camp and carping-harpy heroines.

Women in Trouble awkwardly mixes blue material with sob stories.
