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!

    Thanks for this. I had this on my “to see” list but I think I will remove it. Don’t want to put that into my spirit.

    BTW your review on “New In Town” was awesome and my hubby and I went to see it and it was awesome. Thanks so much for the review. When I read it to my dh he wanted to see it to. So it was a great thing and a great evening. I laughed so hard. Funny thing was we sat right in front of 3 ladies from a town about 10 minutes from the town they were portraying in the film. Hilarious.
