Editorial Reviews

In director Robert Altman's star-studded new ensemble comedy, Richard Gere is a frantically overworked, socially in-demand gynecologist whose life is coming apart at the seams. His wife (Farrah Fawcett) has regressed into a childlike state, while one daughter (Tara Reid) is raising suspicions about the relationship between his soon-to-be-married other daughter (Kate Hudson) and her maid of honor (Liv Tyler). Meanwhile, just as his champagne-loving sister-in-law (Laura Dern) arrives with three nieces in tow, the doctor falls for the sexy new golf pro (Helen Hunt). As complications mount, the good doctor's life rapidly approaches the force of a Texas tornado!

Customer Reviews

Maybe Altman got tired of satire, and just wanted to see how bad movies could get.
G. Twietmeyer
Here the film is packed with talented and aspiring people - but there is something seriously lacking - the entertainment factor.
MR CRAIG M JONTVEDT
Remind me to skip anything else Robert Altman directs... I'll forgive Richard Gere and Helen Hunt for this one.

Jackson Pollack became famous in abstract art for laying a canvas on the floor and splashing, dripping and hurling paint on it. After seeing this film, one might conclude that Robert Altman is to film as Jackson Pollack is to art. The question is whether this is genius or just a compulsive eccentric flinging stuff into the frame. My vote goes to the latter.
The story is a very scattered, almost incoherent stream of foolishness that surrounds the life of Dr. Sullivan Travis (Richard Gere). Dr. T is a prominent gynecologist in Dallas Texas and his socialite patients are among the looniest on the planet. His wife (Farrah Fawcett) went nuts because he loved her too much and treated her too well. His daughter (Kate Hudson) is getting married and her lesbian lover (Liv Tyler) is her maid of honor. His long time nurse (Shelley Long) is in love with him and along with his golf pro (Helen Hunt), wants to seduce him. To top it all off his ditzy sister in law (Laura Dern) is living in his house with her three daughters.
The script has comic possibilities, but Altman's bizarre presentation dissipates it into a chaotic din. Most every scene is dominated by the constant yakity-yak of ten women tittering and chattering at once. Clearly, Altman is attempting to lampoon Texas society with his characterizations, but his free-for-all style turns it into amateurish trash of sitcomesque proportion.
This film is extremely unflattering to women. Almost all the women are portrayed as insane over-emotional, irrational, stupid, or hypochondria ridden flakes. The only woman close to normal is Bree (Helen Hunt), and she is manipulative and self absorbed. Dr. T, in contrast is levelheaded, rationale, reasonable, sensitive and wonderful.

First of all, I would like to state that this movie contains a terrific cast. That's the good side. Everything else is downhill.
Roger Ebert, as well as other critics, gave this movie good reviews. Ole Rog' gave it 3 stars. Personally, I find it difficult to belief that an intelligent movie critic like Roger would rate this so highly. Maybe "Payolla" isn't limited to just the music industry.
While I watched this dreck, I couldn't help but think to myself -- "My God! It's going to take 5 hours to tie together all of these loose ends." No dialog is spared in the attempt to piece everything together. I watched in total disbelief at how bad everything (script/plot/acting) was in this movie. When I started to think that the movie couldn't get any worse, it did. Oh...but you MUST rent it just to witness one of the most bizarre and disgusting endings in movie history. Unbelievable!
Quite frankly, it's too bad that MST3K never riffed on this one. It would have helped tremendously.
If you want to know more about the plot, please read the other reviews as I have (with the help of a psychiatrist) tried to come to terms and block out all memory of this movie.

Disappointment is the only word that comes to mind while writing this review. I had such high hopes for this ensemble piece including such favorites as Helen Hunt and Richard Gere and rising starlets Tara Reid and Kate Hudson. I liked the setting, the characters, and the basic idea. The movie just didn't live up to its potential. All we see is a bunch of scenes from Dr. T's life. We observe the many eccentric characters of Dr. T's family--Tara Reid as the JFK conspiracy-obsessed daughter, Kate Hudson as the Dallas Cowboys wannabe cheerleader/lesbian daughter, and Laura Dern as the drunk, crazy hat-wearing sister-in-law. Most pathetic in the family is Dr. T's wife (Farrah Fawcett), a woman who suffers from the Hestia complex and has consequently reverted to childlike behavior. She supposedly suffers from this complex due to the "overwhelming amount of affection her husband has shown her." I find this hard to believe, since Dr. T's daughters can hardly have five minutes of conversation with him without some kind of distraction. The only redeeming quality of the film is Dr. T's hilarious nurse, Shelly Long. The scenes in the waiting room are top-notch! Total chaos and LOUDNESS abound the room as Shelly Long tries to keep the "fillies from getting restless". Even funnier are the number of women fighting to be the first in line for Dr. T's gynecological equipment! Yet, even these few humorous scenes aren't enought to save this film from drowning. The final scene does not even attempt to wrap up this movie. In the end, we're merely left with a bunch of interesting acquaintances and even though the movie is pretty horrible, we can only hope for a sequal to wrap up this unfinished mess.

This movie is definetly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It is a complete disaster: boring, lousy humor, lousy scenario, lousy acting... All in all, don't make the same mistake as I did and buy this movie!

This is an excellent Altman movie. Though there is the usual large cast you expect from an Altman movie this one is unique in that despite all the periphery confusion it brings an ever increasing focus on just one character, Dr. T himself. Richard Gere has never been one of my favorite actors but he gives an impeccable and likable performance as an always generous and compassionate gynecologist. His wife played by Farrah Fawcett has a breakdown(and gets naked in a fountain) at the mall early on and spends the entire movie institutionalized. His daughters are played by Tara Reid and Kate Hudson, ones a JFK conspiracy nut and the other a lesbian cheerleader(her lover played by Liv Tyler). Dr. T's work life is equally confusing as he treats one hypochondriac after another. Excellent small part by patient Janine Turner. While his wife is in getting treatment he begins an affair with independent golf pro Helen Hunt. In synopsis the movie sounds wacky and it is but it is also a very solid drama. The movie has a backbone and that is Gere. As his perfect life falls away before him he becomes more and more exposed, vulnerable. Lyle Lovetts soundtrack provides a sober running commentary on one man losing control of his life and how he deals with that. An ending that will blow you away....highly recommended. This is a very confident Altman being experimental in a very interesting way, he's full of insight again. Reminds me of some of his seventies work like 1978's The Wedding, but with firmer directorial control.
