Moms of Faith Rating: Horrible!
Intro: The Women features an all star cast of women actresses. I was surprised that with so many great actresses the movie stunk.
Review: The Women was a horrible film. Considering how many seasoned actresses this film had, I expected better acting. Unfortunately, it did not deliver. There was no real meat or plot in the film either. It just plain stunk for lack of a better word. Seriously, I felt convicted that I even watched the whole movie. It was a terrible terrible film.
Cons: There were so many bad things about this movie that honestly, the whole movie is a “con.” However, for the sake of this review, I will do my best to separate the really bad fron the just plain bad.
There were a lot of sexual comments, several lesbian scenes, lesbian sex comments, a warped view of marriage and what sex is really about, an overpowering feminism spin, and immorality was everywhere. Men were not even in the film…which I found rather alarming from a Christian perspective.
God’s name is used in vain and there are over a half a dozen “S” words and several other not nice words as well.
Conclusion: This movie has an extremely world view with far too much female power for a conservative Bible believing woman’s to stomach!
Other than the use of God’s name in vain, there is no real God even in the film. It is a world of sinful women where men are held with no value, are bashed, put down and degraded at every turn.
I strongly recommend that you never ever ever see the women. You will not only waste your time, I am certain the Holy Spirit that abides in every child of God will be grieved!
