    I really expected this movie to suck, and it didn't. Only watched it because of one reviewer's good review, and I'd have to say he was right, it was a good movie. If you watch it with someone, you need to be really comfortable with that person, because there are some uncomfortable moments, but it definitely exceeded expectations and is worth a watch.

    A lot of very good acting talent has been wasted in this film. Certainly, a lot of good talent is present, but the lead characters are given very little to do or say. The director has an appreciation for the female physique, but he doesn't seem to know women very well, or he's not demonstrating that knowledge very well. I'm sure any woman watching the film, if there are any, would have to be saying, 'who would do that?' I have no explanation. As expected, the men in the film are all exploitative, or happy to be exploited. None of them seem to inhabit much intelligence. Even worse, the women don't fare much better. It's not a 'porn movie', but as an episodic comedy, the situations are so far-fetched that I stared at the screen and eventually gave up. Sorry. I like Carla Gugino and Connie Britton, but both actresses have done much better in other projects. Give this a pass.

    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.

    The often thin material spits out a couple of humorous incidents. 17.8.14

    A waste of beauty, talent, and time.

    It was good. But that's where it ended. The flash forwards were a tad strange, loud and unnecessary, but I enjoy it.

    I accidentally stumbled on this movie and I had the pleasure to find in it Simon Baker and Josh Brolin. That two guys were already great reasons to watch the film, but I've found others: a good job, with funny and rich characters.

    Women in Trouble has bright colors and several captivating story lines. It's all about sex really, but isn't life about sex? Of course it is. The ideas presented in this movie are of the open-minded sort, which I adore, to the exception of the recurring fact that anybody in the sex industry should be trying to get out. Beyond that, you get taken in for a nice ride, with events that surprises you at time. It's a bit quirky, funny in passing, and never dull. The acting is good. However, it could have been better but that might be the fault of the scenario or the director. The rest is pretty much invisible, which makes for fine entertainment. The only negative would be that the whole could have been a little bit tighter, more researched. If you're looking for a bit of drama, a bit of sex, some laughs, and a jumble of scenes all about women that tie up together, then you should watch it.

    The dialogues are loaded with wit and humor that you can forget about the underwhelming final act. It wasn't meant to break grounds. It really is just a better than the usual 'female club' outing.
