Thank your lucky stars because I am saving you a lot of:
c) viewing pleasure
d) reputation from being seen to be hiring these ridiculously poor films and having that on your record
So today, I un-bring you The Women. Possibly one of the worst films I have ever had to endure. I say had to because, well I couldn't just abandon it, I always have hope that a film will redeem itself, even if by the one hundred and nineteenth minute it hasn't done so, there's still a few minutes left.
The most tantalising part of this film was watching Meg Ryan's lips. And realising Meg and Nicole Kidman share the same duck bill mouth. It was a revelation.
I won't go anymore into this film because for the record, I'd like to be re-imbursed the almost two hours it took from my life.
Apparently this is a remake and the 1939 version is awesome. This one, notsomuch. Eva Mendes was badly cast - not to mention Candice Bergen as Meg Ryan's mum?! Wrong. What was Candice thinking?? What was I thinking?
I give it half a star if I could even be bothered.
