Veteran producer/director Emmy Award-winner Diane English ("Murphy Brown") helms the proto-feminist comedy drama, following the gossip, wisecracking, and overall disillusionment that erupts among a group of socialite friends when their dearest and most envied learns of her husband's marital infidelity at the hands of a backstabbing shopgirl. This all female cast is lead by Golden Globe-nominee Meg Ryan ("When Harry Met Sally"), Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-nominee Annette Bening ("American Beauty"), Eva Mendes ("Hitch"), Emmy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee Debra Messing (TVs "Will and Grace"), Jada Pinkett Smith ("The Matrix Reloaded"), and Academy Award-nominee, Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Candice Bergen ("Miss Congeniality") with supporting roles by Academy Award-nominee, Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winner Bette Midler ("Beaches"), Academy Award, Emmy Award and Golden Globe-winner Cloris Leachman ("Young Frankenstein"), and Carrie Fisher ("Star Wars").

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: The Women is a toothless remake of the 1939 classic, lacking the charm, wit and compelling protagonists of the original.
Imperfect remake doesn't live up to the original.
