In the "whatever were they thinking of" genre, a new entry: Women in Trouble.
-Rex ReedFull Review
This forced, charmless multi-character movie pretends to show women in all their glorious variety, but it really just traffics in the same old cliches.
-Joe NeumaierFull Review
Women in Trouble has sleeper written all over it and a sequel is already in the works.
-Kevin ThomasFull Review
Mr. Gutierrez, as suggested by all the decolletage, appears to be a breast man. Too bad he didn't set his sights higher.
Unlikely accidents, shared secrets and zany twists combine to whip up a pleasing froth.
-Kyle SmithFull Review
The attractive cast, notably the earthy Gugino, tries hard to invest the one-note characters with a degree of humanity, but are betrayed at every turn by the thin material.
Women in Trouble awkwardly mixes blue material with sob stories.
-Melissa AndersonFull Review
This exuberantly uninhibited indie has the anything-goes spirit of something tossed off in a single burst of collaborative energy.
-Joe LeydonFull Review
Gutierrez's script can't supply female characters as believable as Almodovar's, but in the director's chair he gives his cast room to compensate with funny, self-aware performances.
Gutierrez's story is structurally cliched ... but, worse still, his characters are uniformly unbelievable and two-dimensional.
-Nick SchagerFull Review
A lucky alchemy of writer and cast turns what could have been an indie bore into something surprisingly uproarious.
-Mark PeikertFull Review
A good look at men dealing with women and a good look at the supposedly soft side of porn doesn't make a good looking film.
-Ron WilkinsonFull Review
A tedious dramady about an unappealing group of women in Los Angeles.
-Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
A sprightly, sexy, campy and outrageously funny ensemble comedy that's best watched with an open mind and a large audience for maximum enjoyment.
-Avi OfferFull Review
The film has already reduced itself to an empty exercise in campy, color-bathed titillation, as a gaggle of women are defined by their sexual drives and abilities without comment from the filmmaker.
-Mark KeizerFull Review
Apparently, in Gutierrez's mind, expanding the range of humanity available to women on film means they can be porn stars or prostitutes...and they can be catastrophically dumb...
-MaryAnn JohansonFull Review
It's a film with undeniably gorgeous parts that never quite develops into a sum.
-Brian TallericoFull Review
The most jeopardy these women confronted was the day they said yes to Women in Trouble.
-Marshall FineFull Review
Unfortunately, while it is a great idea for a sketch, or a web series, it's not a movie length idea.
-Christopher NullFull Review
Penthouse Forum meets Pedro Almodovar in this frantic slice of trash-masquerading-as-class.
-Geoff BerkshireFull Review
Too much of Women In Trouble settles for banal instances of infidelity, female bonding, or psychoanalysis when it needs to keep the action going. It's fine to be inconsequential, as long as the charged-up frivolity never stops.
-Scott TobiasFull Review
The film borrows beaucoup Almodovarisms -- multilayered hysterical heroines, a singular homo-ironic aesthetic -- and reduces them to Podunk wink-wink camp and carping-harpy heroines.
-David FearFull Review
At a particularly rundown corner of Almodovar Boulevard and Tarantino Lane, you'll find Women in Trouble, a limp, forgettable collection of interlocking tales all centering on the eponymous narrative setup.
-Matthew ConnollyFull Review
Guys may remember this film as the finest collection of ladies who almost take it all off ever assembled. But in-between all the underwear and fetish outfits is a rather amusing collection of stories described by its very title.
