Gorgeous, and a loving and impressively made-contemporary tribute to an old style of picture submitted by lisa on August 3, 2018, 2:39pm Specifically the Douglas Sirk "women's" melodrama. In technicolor.

boring as hell, after 5 minutes and knowing the summary, it is a waste of time to watch. submitted by Tassos on November 17, 2021, 3:40pm Don't count me in the 'nostalgia crowd". Moore and Quaid are both good actors, but there is little they can do here.

In addition, while a male, I find the portrayal of the four housewives having drinks around a table and babbling worthless gossip and cackling like hens more than offensive, and not representative of the generation of my mother and her friends, who, despite their typical mere two to four years of college, looked like geniuses by comparison.
