    Chicago Tribune Michael Wilmington

    It's a joy. Altman does Dallas the way he did "Nashville" in Nashville or Hollywood in "The Player."

    USA Today Mike Clark

    The movie's pleasures extend even to the visuals, which are more lustrous than in any other Altman movie.

Iffy for 16+

Richly enjoyable Robert Altman, but not for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie includes a same-sex kiss, brief nudity, and a very explicit childbirth scene. A character commits adultery. A character abuses alcohol. There are several hunting scenes, but no animals are shot. There is some strong language.

  • Families can talk about why Dr. T wants so badly to take care of the women in his life, and what effect that has on them. They should talk about why Dee Dee is planning her wedding when the groom seems superfluous (we never even see him or hear about him until the wedding scene). What is it that Dee Dee and Connie and Peggy want, and how will they get it? How are they different from Bree? What do you think about Bree's reason for changing jobs? What does that mean to Dr. T?
