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!

2.0 out of 5 stars A waste of acting talent February 13, 2001
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Effort February 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
To be frank, I watched the movie because of the talent behind it. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with virtually every aspect of this movie.
There are times when the action bounces back and forth between two sets of characters and situations (a la Fifth Element) but there is little or no connection between the two situations, which leaves me dizzy and confused instead of entertained or stimulated.
There is extreme character development, such as the numerous times we see Peggy (Laura Dern) slipping off to take a nip from her flask or pouring herself a drink. The idea of her alocholism is pounded into my conscious to the point of annoying me, and then I found that the fact that she has a substance abuse problem has nothing to do with the plot, the character interaction or anything else for that matter. Why did Robert Altman make such a big deal of it then? Filler?
The obsession with the Kennedy family for Connie (Tara Reid's character) is another case where a good amount of time is spent in trying to show us this side of the character and it is never followed up with any tangible purpose later in the movie. Strangely enough, she is probably one of the more 'normal' women in the picture.
All of this would have lead to a mediocre movie but the ending really killed it for me. I have no idea what the ending is supposed to mean. In fact, it reinforces the idea that the whole plot was derived by the writers completing several Mad Libs pages and then editing them into a screenplay. There is really no other explanation for why so many aspects of the movie seem to be so random (or haphazard at best).

1.0 out of 5 stars a tragic waste of celluloid August 2, 2001
By T. Gore
Format:VHS Tape
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time February 20, 2001
this is a terrible movie .
There is no plot, and no good acting ,and I felt the entire movie seems to have been shot in Irritatavision with so many people talking at once that you just want to strangle someone!
bottom line: Avoid this if you can. and me? ..I will never, ever see another Robert Altman movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Richard Gere and all the Women March 25, 2002
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.
