Entertaining and smart movie, worshiping the female power

This movie has porn stars in it. This can only be cheesy, right?Well, there were some good movies around this subject - remember Boogie Nights?In certain ways, this movie is better behaved than many others that deal with sexual topics: Not a single naked nipple, as far as I could see. And the sex talk is pretty honest.There is a lot of comic relief in it: Holly, the "dumb" sexy girl provokes a few good laughs, e.g. when she asks whether she's an immortal whore, while meaning immoral.The acting is professional - nothing bothered me about it. The story has a few nice twists, and kept me interested right from the start.Overall, this is a movie that not only sports a few sexy looking women but also is quite entertaining bringing up a few real-life situations (mother-child relationships, adultery, responsibility, trust, truth and porn).It's a movie about women, and the love for them. In a way, it reminds me of Almodovar's films.Give it a try. You won't be embarrassed!

Hilarious and Endearing, An Unexpected Treasure

I honestly did not see much potential in "Women In Trouble," but I decided to rent it and I wish I had made it out to the theaters for it. This is a wonderful film that employs the technique of multiple story lines to perfection. The film makes you laugh much more than expected, but keeps its heart in the midst of all the appropriately titled trouble. It's too real to just become a comedy or a tragedy or a drama, this film is an intoxicating blur of emotions. On top of all this is a phenomenal cast. If "Women In Trouble" gave you that hesitant feeling it gave me when I first heard of it, then ignore it and take a risk this one is well worth it!

Wow.

Women in Trouble is not an exploitation film, or even a parody of one. It's a remarkably clever, literate, surreal comedy-drama that just happens to be set in a daffy world inspired by the culture of trashy porn. Like Pulp Fiction, it twines together a number of overheated and seemingly disconnected narratives. But the comparison is totally unfair - to Tarantino, who, for all his cleverness, will never make a movie as emotionally involving as this one. Or as funny.It would be almost impossible to summarize this film, or convey its weird charm in a few words. So I won't try. I will warn that a lot of the story hinges on sex - without being *about* sex. Like the best European farces, it takes sex for granted, and never blushes. But it takes that attitude to the next level. Even if you feel you're sexually liberated, you'll need to check your own lingering hangups at the door, in order to keep up with this extremely engaging group of ladies.This is hands-down one of my favorite films of the past year or two, and that's regardless of budget. See it with an open mind. And be prepared to laugh, cry and be amazed.

High-quality off-road chick flick that guys will also enjoy

This movie works sort of like "Crash" or "Magnolia", with different characters having their own story lines that turn out to be related to each other in some way, and intersect at certain points in the film. Also like Magnolia, there's a lot of self-discovery and unburdening of the heart. It's about two thirds drama, layered within outrageous situations and humor. There are a lot of characters. I don't know how the writer kept them all straight. There's a porn star, a prostitute, a porn star/prostitute, a therapist, a flight attendant, a masseuse, and a couple others. Some of these are strangers at first, but form strong bonds, resulting, I think, from some natural female instinct to support each other in crisis. I'd like to run down the various crises they deal with, but to avoid spoiling things I'll just say they involve being stuck in an elevator, infidelity, porn, lesbian relationships, bestiality, and unusual sexual dysfunction, to name a few.This movie basically ends up being about womanly camaraderie, and the bond that ties all women in all walks of life together, I think. However, it's also got enough sex talk, women in underwear, zany situations, and even a degree of bathroom humor, that'll keep guys interested. It's also a great story with an outstanding script and superb performances that combined to have me completely absorbed by the end. I'm a guy, in case that wasn't clear.I have to extend extra-special props to Adrianne Palicki (Holly, the call girl/porn actress), who had a provocative monologue near the middle of the movie that was impeccably and movingly delivered. I was completely entranced.PS. Keep watching after the credits. There's a cute little satirical interview with the "porn stars", conducted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's not quite up to the level of the material in the rest of the movie (probably why it was placed after the credits), but still worth watching.
