Meanwhile, adult film up-and-comer Holly Rocket (Adrianne Palicki) struggles with her reluctance to go girl-on-girl in front of the cameras by putting on a private show with her… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the "whatever were they thinking of" genre, a new entry: Women in Trouble."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Mr. Gutierrez, as suggested by all the décolletage, appears to be a breast man. Too bad he didn't set his sights higher."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Gutierrez's story is structurally clichéd ... but, worse still, his characters are uniformly unbelievable and two-dimensional."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"A good look at men dealing with women and a good look at the supposedly soft side of porn doesn't make a good looking film."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"The film has already reduced itself to an empty exercise in campy, color-bathed titillation, as a gaggle of women are defined by their sexual drives and abilities without comment from the filmmaker."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"This forced, charmless multi-character movie pretends to show women in all their glorious variety, but it really just traffics in the same old cliches."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Unlikely accidents, shared secrets and zany twists combine to whip up a pleasing froth."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"It's not pornography, but it evokes that same uneasy feeling that you're watching something that's so wrong but so right at the same time."
‑ Perri Nemiroff, CinemaBlend.com
"A tedious dramady about an unappealing group of women in Los Angeles."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Apparently, in Gutierrez's mind, expanding the range of humanity available to women on film means they can be porn stars or prostitutes...and they can be catastrophically dumb..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Women in Trouble has sleeper written all over it and a sequel is already in the works."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Too much of Women In Trouble settles for banal instances of infidelity, female bonding, or psychoanalysis when it needs to keep the action going. It's fine to be inconsequential, as long as the charged-up frivolity never stops."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"A lucky alchemy of writer and cast turns what could have been an indie bore into something surprisingly uproarious."
‑ Mark Peikert, New York Press
"A sprightly, sexy, campy and outrageously funny ensemble comedy that's best watched with an open mind and a large audience for maximum enjoyment."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"It's a film with undeniably gorgeous parts that never quite develops into a sum."
‑ Brian Tallerico, Movie Retriever
