The Stepford Wives
Ohh don't you just love remakes? (or hate!?)
This time the remake of Bryan Forbes' cult film is a comedy.
No killing to replace the wives with robots (there's even a gay guy)
Well I guess they're way too advanced to kill. hehe
Well here's how I'll recommend this one.
You can watch it if you:
a] watched the original film and curious
b] a feminist
c] a chauvinist
d] have extra money
e] just for the heck of it
(I've seen the original years ago, and it was really great.
It was my mom's favorite. If you can find a DVD
[or a betamax] watch it, and make me a copy. please?
? okay okay it was also D. hehehe)
And it's also okay not to watch the new one. You'll not miss that much.
and before feminists pass judgement wait for the twist. oooops.
This is good for a few laughs
(err I was the only one laughing inside the movie house)
how can you not laugh with lines like these:
A Stepford wife: I'm going to use a pinecone as the baby Jesus this year.
Bobbi: And I'm going to attach a pinecone to my vibrator and have a really Merry Christmas this year.
Mrs. Wellington: I asked myself, "Where would no one notice a town full of robots?" Connecticut.
Roger: Oh, I feel like Nancy Drew in the mystery of mid-life crisis.
Joanna: Hey, aren't you Bobbi Markowitz? I love your books! What was the name of that book, the one about your mother?
Bobbi: 'I Love You, But Please Die.'
I also like Joanne's (Nicole Kidman) idea of reality TV.
So, it's you're choice.
I offer you a chance to rediscover yourself.
- And in the process, other people will discover you.
