Rotten Tomatoes® Score
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.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although the content of this dramedy is actually on the tame side -- there's a little bit of swearing, drinking, and smoking, and some sex talk, but no outright nudity -- it deals with mature themes, including infidelity and betrayal. One of the casualties of adult characters' marital discord is their child, a painful issue that's handled with a certain flippancy that might be confusing for younger viewers, especially given that the tween in question appears to be truly struggling over her parents' problems. Also expect lots of shopping and label-dropping -- and more than a few jokes about already-thin women and girls needing to lose weight.
