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

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.

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

Unlikely accidents, shared secrets and zany twists combine to whip up a pleasing froth.

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.

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.

The film borrows beaucoup Almodóvarisms -- 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.

This exuberantly uninhibited indie has the anything-goes spirit of something tossed off in a single burst of collaborative energy.

Gutierrez's script can't supply female characters as believable as Almodovar's, but in the director's chair he gives his cast room to compensate with funny, self-aware performances.
