      This adaptation of Wilde's Lady Windermere's Fan lacks bite due to liberties taken with the source material, coupled with uneven performances.

      Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Peter Howell Toronto Star Rated: 2/4 Feb 18, 2006 Full Review Liam Lacey Globe and Mail ... willfully odd movie ... Rated: 2/4 Feb 17, 2006 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Both Hunt and Johansson flounder here as the women who seemingly oppose each other. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 9, 2020 Full Review List Staff The List A Good Woman is solid, uninventive entertainment. Special credit needs to go to John Bloomfield's costume design, which is an exquisitely detailed melange of tea dress and evening wear decadence. What more could you ask for?

      Julie P Pretty good movie. Only problem I had was that Helen Hunt's voice is so monotonic. All other cast is superb. Just think she is a terrible actress. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review don k Far and away, one of my favorite movies. (I'll be subjective, but rational, due to the incredulously low tomatometer and audience ratings.) Helen Hunt is consistently flawless in her role; she captivates the viewer as assuredly as her character entices the male characters who colorfully populate the film. Scarlett Johansen? She always performs best when working with a seasoned director, and here she carries her character credibly well throughout. The same can be said of Mark Umber. To literary devotees of Oscar Wilde: this adaptation of "Lady Windermere's Fan" will not disappoint. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent period piece about scandals and surprises with a good telling of an older story that I have not experienced before this film. It can be boring but I like the look of the history and the costumes and makeup and hairstyling and ScarJo and Helen Hunt in it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review michael t I can't imagine why this movie got such bad reviews. The cast, script, costumes and scenery were superb. A nice period piece. Highly enjoyable. I always enjoy seeing Scarlett Johansson. She did not disappoint. I'm not a huge Helen Hunt fan, but she was excellent as well. I haven't seen the play it was based on, but as a stand alone it worked for me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I actually really liked this movie. It was clean, other than a little cleavage and amoral jokes, though not crass jokes. The acting was superb from several of the cast, and I was happy to see Mrs. Erlynne get a happy ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member It is a comedy/drama, while I enjoyed the film, I never once laughed or found a humerous moment. I love Helen Hunt, she is a lovely actress, and I realize it is easy to critque compared to performing. However in this, she seemed not quite able to find the character meant for this writing.
