Plot

Joanna Eberhart (Nicole Kidman) is a successful television producer on the verge of yet another emmy-winning streak of tv shows when she is fired from her job at a pretigious network. She then has a mental breakdown and her husband Walter (Matthew Broderick) and their two children (Dylan Hartigan, Fallon Brooking) move to Stepford, Conneticut, the most perfectly perfect little town there ever was. The women of Stepfrod spend all day knitting, gardening, exercising in beautiful dresses, and are the most splendid of all women on Earth. Soon, Joanna along with her best-selling author buddy, Bobbie (Bette Midler) and Democratic, flamboyant fairy friend Roger (Roger Bart) realize that something isn't right in Stepford. All is not as perfect as it seems...especially after Roger and Bobbie are turned into perfect portraits of Stepford. Why are the women of Stepfrod so perfect? What do the Stepford Husabnds have to do with the scheme? Will Joanna ultimately uncover the truth? Or are the Stepford coming for her to make her a blonde, bubbly piece of perfection?
 

Comments

I went to see this movie for the sole reason of seeing Glenn Close, whom is a very great actress. Many people had also commented on how great the original was, so I was ready to see this supposedly great film. I was utterly disappointed.Obviously not sticking to the exact script of the original, the whole thing smelled of modern humor gone terribly bad. Nicole Kidman's character was, at times, convincing.Bette Midler's character was an obvious replay of her previous roles.Glenn Close's character was absolutely unconvincing.But the worst ever was Matthew Broderick's character.I just wanted to cry after watching him flounder about in the depthless role of the weak-then-suddenly-brave and-bad husband. And I'm quite sure the original Stepford Wives didn't have a gay couple--intended, I guess to put a modern twist on it. The characters didn't have pasts, they didn't have reasons to act the way they did.This small detail drove me up a wall:Faith Hill's character has a "blow out" at the party and sparks fly out of her ears.Another wife spits out money like an ATM.It is later revealed that the wives aren't robots, they're merely brainwashed.So tell me how a normal person shoots sparks out of their ears and money out of their mouths? It doesn't make sense! This movie could have been so much better if someone would have actually read the script and then threw it away and wrote something more meaningful. At the end of the movie, I was left there wondering what its point was. But there is one redeeming quality in the movie:the 1950s styled costumes. They were bright, well fitted, and the only thing interesting on the show. So if you are really into the costume thing, just grit your teeth and sit through this hopelessly ridiculous movie.
