I went to see this last night, and I haven't decided yet if I liked it. I did howl at that tea party scene when they were all discussing what to do with pine cones. Bette Midler is so frickin' hilarious.
They were times, though, when the movie just made me really uncomfortable. I guess because even though it was poking fun at the whole "superwoman" myth, there are an awful lot of men (and women) out there who'd like us to be Stepford Wives. The husband of a good friend of mine, for example, once talked her out of accepting her dream job, because she'd make a lot more money than he did. And even in my own feminist household, my pretty enlightened partner still thinks that the tasks of cleaning and cooking are primarily mine.
So in the end, I just wasn't sure what to take from this movie. Was it saying that women are the ones making our lives unbearable? That we can't strive for perfection, because it comes at too high a price? I agree with that, but then how do we get the men to stop expecting it?
Oooh, I'm on a rant. Obviously, I'm over-anaylsing what's meant to be a light hearted film. I did find it very amusing in parts!
