Editorial Reviews

Dr. Sullivan Travis (Gere) is a man at the top of his game, a rich and successful Dallas gynecologist whose "religion" is women. Dr. T worships women. In his immediate family and in his office, they surround him. He is loving and giving to each and every one at all times -- he is their savior, and he would have it no other way. And sure enough, as in the story of Job, one day a higher force decides to test his faith. Once a man in complete control of his universe, Dr. T now finds himself buffeted by chaos and confusion.

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.

This is satire, people, and it's funny. Sit back, enjoy the exaggeration and remember the director is Robert Altman who's always doing something weird with normal. Altman holds up a mirror -- the kind you might encounter in a fun house -- and while there's always distortion, it's revelatory distortion. And it leads one annoying irritating catastrophic step after the other to an absolutely sublime ending. I enjoyed this film very much.

A painfully annoying movie plot accentuated by long drawn out scenes involving crowds of women scripted to mill about chattering driveling lines while prompted to raise the audience stress level to maximum effect for no gain. Poorly executed characters and development there of.
Nonsensical story line and accompanying Characters.

This movie gave me anxiety from the get go. Dr T's crazy hectic office was full of overly hormonal women who really, really wanted Pap Smears and their private parts checked. I mean, who REALLY wants a gyno exam performed anyway?? Not very fun! Farrah Fawcett's acting was terrible as was Tara Reid's. The plot was boring. The writing was terrible. I couldn't even finish it!! Had to shut it off mid movie. Do yourself a favor and skip this movie. I can think of many things I would rather do than sit through this movie again. In fact, I'd rather get a Pap smear!

There was no character development and every character was so shallow. The storyline just kept hopping from one shallow character's dilemma to another. You're suppose to believe that Richard Gere's character, Dr T, loved and lavished his wife so much that it resulted in a nervous breakdown. Yet, it doesn't take a skinny minute after his wife is institutionalized to start an affair and fall in love with Helen Hunt's character. I'm not sure how to classify this movie as it tries to be funny (but it's not) and it tries at times to be serious (but it's not). Unless, you just want to see Richard Gere (who is easy on the eyes in this movie), don't waste two hours on this movie.

First of all note, that I gave this movie FIVE STARS because this movie provides an excellent textbook example of how to make a stinky movie. DR. T AND THE WOMEN is a 122 minute color movie, taking place in the present era. The plot concerns only people in the upper-social class. Richard Gere plays a gynecologist ("Sullivan Travis"). Farrah Fawcett plays his wife ("Kate Travis"). The couple of two daughters, played by Tara Reid and Kate Hudson. Helen Hunt plays a golfer with the first name, "Bree." The movie uses various techniques that work together to produce a stinky movie. In my opinion, the presence of even one of these techniques could create a stinky movie. Because of the presence of so many poor cinematographic techniques and poor script-writing techniques used in this film, the result is a movie that is UNBEARABLY STINKY. What makes this movie so excellent, is that so many cinematographic mistakes and script-making mistakes are tied together in a tidy package, that the movie provides an excellent teaching device on what mistakes to avoid when making a movie. Here is a partial list of the bad techniques:

(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.
