107. August 24, 2010 - The Women (2008)

So, this is supposed to be a film about female empowerment and the importance of friends, but it ends up being a two-hour long Hallmark card rife with cliches and contrived plotlines. There is nothing wrong with the performances - in fact, Bette Midler steals the whole film in her five or ten minutes onscreen and Cloris Leachman is great - but the movie never comes together. And really, throwing a banana on a NYC street? But a friend of mine is in it!
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
