Had fun watching this on TV yesterday. It's entertaining as well as good scripting. A movie that may appear silly at first but highly intellectual and interesting for the ending. Great cast!

Frank Oz's eagerly awaited comedy/thriller remake of THE STEPFORD WIVES turned out to be a great big fizzer when it was released in the summer of 2004. Whilst it does pale in comparison to the earlier 1975 Bryan Forbes film (based on the controversial Ira Levin novel), I believe that the remake of STEPFORD WIVES still has the ability to stir debate and argument about the delicate balance of power in married relationships.    When hard-driven TV executive Joanna Eberhart (Nicole …

Once again Nicole Kidman has proven to the world that you don't have to be that talented to be a big success. Ever since "Moulin Rouge" and "The Hours," people have been gushing about how glamorous and great Kidman is. Perhaps I'm in the minority here, but if it weren't for Tom Cruise, we probably would have never heard of her. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed her in "The Others," but none of her other movies have ever made me breathless or cry.    "The Stepford Wives" …

But if you like movies like Practical Magic and Rat …

Pros: Bette Middler, Roger Bart, funny moments     Cons: some logic problems, Broderick seems lost, not scathing enough     The Bottom Line: I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin/ My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M. - Styx - "Mr. Roboto"     Although Frank Oz’s remake of the 1975 Stepford Wives film is set in the present day, the setting and tone are confused as he transforms the thriller into a dark comedy. …

Pros: Some good acting and laughs.     Cons: Week second half, Broderick is very bland.     The Bottom Line: While it has some laughs, the film drags in parts and sputters to a finish.     In suburban America of the 50’s, the ideal family was one that conformed to the standards of the community and knew their neighbors well. Such families were hard working and took part in social events in the community and were often ready to lend …
