The Women

The latest chick flick film, "The Women" , is about to hit theatres September 12th. And it features an all star cast - Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. I love chick flicks! Where has Meg Ryan been and will Debra Messing escape her disastrous "Wedding Date" luck?
The Women tells the story of Mary Haines (Meg Ryan), a clothing designer who seems to have it all - a beautiful country home, a rich financier husband, an adorable 11-year-old daughter and a part-time career creating designs for her father's venerable clothing company. Her best friend, Sylvie Fowler (Annette Bening), leads another enviable life - a happily single editor of a prominent fashion magazine, a possessor of a huge closet of designer clothes and a revered arbiter of taste and style poised on New York's cutting edge. But when Mary's husband enters into an affair with Crystal Allen (Eva Mendes), a sultry 'spritzer girl' lurking behind the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter, all hell breaks loose. Mary and Sylvie's relationship is tested to the breaking point while their tight-knit circle of friends, including mega-mommy Edie Cohen (Debra Messing) and author Alex Fisher (Jada Pinkett-Smith), all start to question their own friendships and romantic relationships as well.

I hope you know that this is a remake of the 1939 classic that starred Rosalind Russell and Joan Crawford. Now that was the original chick flick. It's one of my favorite films and try to show it to everyone who hasn't seen it yet. So, if you want a nice old classic chick flick please go see the original one. I'm not so sure about this new one from the look of the trailer, it looks very cliche and not original (yes, I know it's a remake, but they still could have done something new and fresh to it and it doesn't look new or fresh). Sorry, if I offended anyone.
