THE WOMEN (2008) 7TWO, 9PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

From the writer/pro­ducer of TV’s Mur­phyBrown comes this ode to wronged women every­where. Meg Ryan stars as New Yorker Mary, who en­lists the help of her gal pals (An­nette Ben­ing, De­bra Mess­ing and Jada Pin­kett Smith) to help deal with the not-so-slight prob­lem of her hus­band’s af­fec­tions for a sales­girl (Eva Men­des). While the script cham­pi­ons fe­male em­pow­er­ment, un­for­tu­nately the all-star cast doesn’t live up to the 1939 orig­i­nal star­ring Norma Shearer and Joan Craw­ford, at a time when it re­ally was scan­dalous to men­tion D-I-V-O-R-C-E. ★★★
