Director: Diane English
Staring: Meg Ryan; Annette Bening; Eva Mendez; Debra Messing; Jada Pinkett Smith; Bette Midler; Candice Bergen and Carrie Fisher.
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.
thanks for posting this, its so important that we are careful about what we let ourselves watch and be exposed to…trash in will equal trash out!
I would love to see more movie reviews! This is a great thing to help each other with!
God Bless You!
