I talked my brave husband into taking me to see The Women this weekend. I had seen a couple of interviews on TV, read two posts of bloggers who liked it, and thought that it looked like a good one. We went in the afternoon, so the theater was pretty empty. Even so, poor Johnny noticed that he was the only guy in the theater, except for a baby boy!
We should have stayed home. What a waste of money. I expected a light-hearted chick flick. What I got was a film that dragged on so that I actually found myself getting sleepy. Really!
This predictable film had a scene that disturbed me. While visiting a spa, Meg Ryan's character, after finding out about her husband's infidelity, shares a marijuana cigarette with the character played by Bette Midler. (What a waste of Bette Midler's good talent!) Call me crazy, but isn't that stuff illegal? Is this what Hollywood thinks happens to middle America when a husband strays?
I say thumbs down to this one. What's your opinion?
