Ultimate Chick Flick The Women Is Finally About To See The Silver Screen

Here's the trailer for The Women, the Diane English remake of the 1939 George Cukor film based on the play by Clare Booth Luce. According to Nikki Finke, the movie — which features an all-female cast (Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Bette Midler, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Debi Mazur, Joanna Gleason, Carrie Fisher, Lynn Whitfield and Cloris Leachman) and is directed and produced by a woman as well — had a dicey future, despite the fact that Sex and the City proved that women actually, you know, go to see movies. It took 15 years to get The Women made, and male studio execs, whom Finke refers to as the "he-man woman-haters club" were about to shut the movie down, but had a change of heart and the film will now be released this September.

@rednrowdy: And that is also one of the reasons I plan to see this film. I want to support female product and lead films and not just certain types of female films.

At the risk of being stoned - I don't get the SATC thing. I'm educated and from a big city. I've lived in NY and have trouble dating, but the lives of those characters don't inspire or resonate with me - at all. I'm okay with my friends who were excited to see it, but SATC does not compute for me.
