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.Read more ›
Nonsensical story line and accompanying Characters.
(1) PLOT GETS SNOWED UNDER. The main plot, or anyway, what is supposed to be the main plot, is that Farrah Fawcett somehow acquires a psychiatric disorder. In short, she takes off all of her clothes and prances about in a fountain in an upscale shopping mall. The movie shows that this takes place next to a store called, "Godiva Chocolates." Ha, ha, ha, this could be the only clever part of the entire movie. Discriminating gentleman will not complain too much, at the full-frontal sight of Farrah Fawcett's ta-tas. Some of the plot concerns Farrah Fawcett's character receiving treatment in a psychiatric ward.Read more ›

Being female and having spent a good deal of my doctor visits in gynecologists office, this movie could be viewed as a satire of a gynecologists practice. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Stella
Monotonous. Poor plot. I like Richard Gere, Farrah Fawcett and Helen Hunt, but even the all star cast could not save the horrible writing.Published 1 month ago by DMLAR
