By MAL VINCENT By Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot ONE EXASPERATED character in "The Women" yells: "What do you think this is, some 1930s movie?" If only. "The Women," the original directed by George Cukor and co- scripted by Anita Loos, was the comedy highlight of 1939 - the greatest year in movie history. (It also saw "Gone With the Wind,""Wuthering Heights,""The Wizard of Oz" and a half dozen other top films.) With its all-female cast, it dealt affectionately with women, who, as...

By Chris Hicks Deseret News How secure am I in my masculinity? I went to see "The Women" last weekend, and I was the only man in the theater. There weren't even any men on the screen! What's more, I watched the 1939 black-and-white original the night before. No men in that one either. Of course, I was prepared. I raised four daughters. I've had female bosses. I once ate quiche. "The Women" began as a play by the very witty Clare Boothe Luce, and it ran for 666 performances -- as...

Further comparison would only serve to demean that sleek and waspish artifact of a bygone era, and also to...

By Bob Strauss "Sex and the City" was smarter. "Mamma Mia!" was dopier. But both, unfortunately, were more entertaining than "The Women." The exceptional television writer Diane English has been laboring on this update of Clare Boothe Luce's theatrical war horse for 14 years. She adapted the play and its well-liked but hopelessly outdated 1939 film incarnation and directed the remake -- her first feature -- to boot. She came up with a lot of decent ideas. And she's done a competent...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
