As a well-crafted, well-written and well-acted entertainment, it drew me in and got its job done.

This is Diane English's directing debut, and it shows. Also in evidence is her familiarity with television. The movie is shot like a TV show, with frequent intercut close-ups.
The movie is a feminist lesson instead of what it should have been (and once was): a tough, synthetic, high-gloss entertainment that wears its heart on its lacquered fingernails.
The film repeatedly sacrifices dramatic punch for political correctness.
The Women is less about getting even than about inspiring that same mushy sense of female empowerment you might find in a Tyler Perry meller, complete with manic mood swings and full-blown diva moments.
Becomes unfocused as it stumbles over all the points it wants to make.
Defanged and drippy, the remake of 1939's The Women seems to have been made for the dullard granddaughters of the sassy, sharp society matrons in George Cukor's campy original.
A witless, straining mess.

...full of hollow chuckles and crocodile tears and implausible sisterhood and a boldly defiant refusal to deliver comedy. Because laughing is sexist.
