Jean Yothers Orlando Sentinel It sparkles with snappy dialogue, a parade of smart fashions and a beauty of a hair-pulling, dress-fearing, name-calling fight.

Rated: 3/5 Nov 27, 2003 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews An awful remake of George Cukor's witty 1939 The Women.

Audience Member Watered down remake of THE WOMEN with music. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/12/21 Full Review steve d The story is really unpleasant. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review ashley h The Opposite Sex is a disappointing film. It is about the virtuous wife who loses her husband to another woman. June Allyson and Joan Collins give terrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. David Miller did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member charmless, dull remake Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible remake of The Women from 1939 with Norma Shearer . June Allyson is about as sexy as a bag of sticks with Joan Collins lack of acting ability on full display. The only thing worth looking at in this technicolor tragedy is the 1956 Lincoln convertible - don't waste your time. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Great June Allyson movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
