Stepford has a secret: all of the wives are way too perfect, and all of the husbands are way too happy. "The Stepford Wives," a comic re-imagining of the 1975 suspense classic, follows the tale that unfolds when a young couple moves from Manhattan to the upper-class suburb of Connecticut. Once there, they soon discover that the Stepford men are replacing their wives with compliant robots.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"To paraphrase Paul Rudnick's Premiere magazine movie-critic alter ego, Libby Gelman-Waxner: It's flat, cold, fork-resistant and tasteless, if you ask me."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Very good dialogue, the rest of this stuff just falls apart."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Comedic remake of '70s horror movie has sex humor."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The remake of The Stepford Wives is the gayest major motion picture ever made - and remember, I saw Troy."
‑ Brian Juergens, Freeze Dried Movies
"To read review visit"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It has a wonderfully wounding malice directed at both the Stepford, Conn., contingent of Energizer Bunny wives and the New Yorkers who have just moved in."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"Satirizing The Stepford Wives is pointless."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"There's not a single redeeming feature in this colossal over-budgeted waste of time..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"In 1975, The Stepford Wives ... seemed creepy and socially relevant. Today, it just feels dull."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Absent the suspense and satirical thrust of its predecessor, The Stepford Wives is a star-studded, soft-centered piece of whimsy"
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, Las Vegas Mercury
"It has two speeds -- obvious and more so."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"It glides by on the notion that there is little that is still frightening about being an American woman. I wish I could say it was a premise whose time had come."
‑ Alissa Quart, Film Comment Magazine
"As comedies go, it's actually fairly funny, albeit in a light, superficial way which either hides or exposes the fact that the plot is a thick tangle of mutual contradictions."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"What a sad, sad mess."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
""The Stepford Wives" is a terrific comedy, but a lousy motion picture."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
