1.0 out of 5 stars How bad can bad be....., December 31, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Women (DVD)
There is bad and then there is really bad and the there is the remake of The Women which adds a new low to bad. A great cast wasted on a really bad script. How can one of the funniest plays in B'way History be turned into a dull mess where all the women end up being boring... even Bette Middler ;who can save most anything; couldn't lift this Turkey out the mud! The casting was right, but the ladies had nothing to work with. Leachman who is super funny didn't have a single funny line. Don't waist you money on this ....

You are so right about this remake being a turkey! The original of "The Women" has been a favorite of mine since I was a child and saw it on TV in the 50s. The dialogue is fast, fun, and witty. It takes more than one viewing to enjoy all the lively banter. I couldn't even make it through the remake. It was boring and trite. I guess it's impossible to improve on perfection. Meg Ryan's overacting in this movie is embarrassing, and I love Meg Ryan.

I had read the reviews, but watched this anyway...I knew I was in for trouble when Joan Crawford's parting shot in the original was inserted in the first five minutes of this film....
