Consensus: Sebastian Gutierrez certainly has an eye for the beauty of the female form, but Women in Trouble lacks a compelling script or point of view to go with its curvaceous visual appeal.

In the "whatever were they thinking of" genre, a new entry: Women in Trouble.

Unlikely accidents, shared secrets and zany twists combine to whip up a pleasing froth.

Gutierrez's story is structurally clichéd ... but, worse still, his characters are uniformly unbelievable and two-dimensional.

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.

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.

Perri Nemiroff

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.

Mr. Gutierrez, as suggested by all the décolletage, appears to be a breast man. Too bad he didn't set his sights higher.

Glenn Whipp
Associated Press

The attractive cast, notably the earthy Gugino, tries hard to invest the one-note characters with a degree of humanity, but are betrayed at every turn by the thin material.

Mark Peikert
New York Press

A lucky alchemy of writer and cast turns what could have been an indie bore into something surprisingly uproarious.
