Meg Ryan's character, Mary Haines, asked it best, "What is this, a movie from the 30's?" And the answer is definitely not! When I first watched "The Women," I must admit that I was a little disappointed. I went into the theater thinking that it was going to be exactly like the movie I had seen from the 1930's starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Rosalind Russel. But in all fact, I should have known that today's society is no longer like that of the thirties, so instead of seeing the women stab each other in the back you see the women trying to support each other. This movie keeps the main plot and a lot of the "quick wit" that was so known for the earlier version. Today's "The Women" shows how far we as a society have come, being supportive and allowing the original lesbian character from the play to be incorporated in today's movie (left out due to censorship of the era). I would suggest this movie to all sorts of women, whether young, old, rich, or poor. Whomever watches this movie will walk away with a sense of empowerment and that "can do anything" attitude. I also suggest that if you have the time to watch the version from 1939, just to see how different the two really are. Enjoy the movie, I sure did!

The Women in this movie was wonderful and funny. It show how women can be there for each other.

I bought this without seeing it and I'm SO glad I did. This is a fantastic story. I'm very eager to see the original and see how well it follows. What I truly love about this movie is that there are NO men. That is a fantastic cinematic feat in a film. It adds a unique twist to the visuals of the movie and emphasizes the strengths of the women. Debra Messing and Jada Pinkett Smith... I can't decide who stole the show. Both characters did so much in such subtle ways to advance the plot between Meg Ryan's character and her husband and between her character and her best friend, Annette Benning's character. This story highlights many of the struggles women face - issues with family (husband, child, parents), issues with work (happiness, "a woman in a man's world", back stabbing), issues with friendship (backstabbing, sisterhood, lack of communication). Everything was handled with sensitivity (not kid gloves) to allow the audience to form their own opinions about how best to handle the situations the characters find themselves in. I very much appreciated that the opinions of the film's creators were there but not the overlying message.

I really enjoyed the overall movie and loved the enormous number of superstar actresses they had onboard this project. This movie was a great modern twist on the original 1930's film, but it didn't quite have the same magic that the first one had...but of course that's kinda of a DUH moment. Overall though, the movie was pretty good.

If you want a steamy movie. Go somewhere else. This is a wonderful trip through the changing relationships between women. This charming story takes you through the full range of emotions. You may not agree with some of the decisions these women make but you sure can understand them.

I trust these actresses to deliver and deliver they did.

This movie was not as good as I thought it was going to be. There is not ONE single sight of a male in this film, which I thought was extremely weird since the whole movie is based around a husband that is having an affair on his wife. I love most of the actresses in this movie, however I was very disappointed. It didn't hold my attention very much. If you are going to see this, it is for sure a chick flick!

Not overwhelmingly stimulating but quite enjoyable. Would not recommend watching this with a guy.

The original "The Women" with Norma Shear and an unforgettable cast was the best except for the corny last scene. So I was hoping that they would change the ending for the new version, creating a very independent woman out of the main character (Meg Ryan). They did a 50/50 that one can live with. I think the cast could have been better because they didn't come across as truly beliveable or as funny as the original. If you are going to recreate a great movie, you should find the best director and actors who can fill the bill. Sadly, this missed the mark.
