Women in Trouble Blu-Ray Review

You can own this blu-ray today

Synopsis: An outrageous comedy about ten very different women with one thing in common.Written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez (Snakes on a Plane, The Eye), this critically acclaimed film features a knockout ensemble cast including Carla Gugino (Watchmen, American Gangster), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Cadillac Records, "Entourage"), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer, 10 Things I Hate About You), Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights", "Spin City"), Simon Baker ("The Mentalist", The Devil Wears Prada), Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights", "South Beach"), Elizabeth Berkeley ("Saved by the Bell", Showgirls) and Marley Shelton (A Perfect Getaway, W.)

Review: Ever since Pulp Fiction there has been a rash of cheeky and personality-filled ensemble films that tell multiple character stories at once and then tie them all in.  Its not that Pulp Fiction created the genre, but it really made it mainstream.  With Women in Trouble, director Sebastian Gutierrez takes this concept and inserts women that are a huge mess.

This fim is at it's base a comedy, but there are some heavy moments to be sure.  The film follows a number of women...a pregnant porn star, a few women trapped in an elevator, a wife that is getting cheated on, etc.  It follows each of their situations and then at the end we get a big tie-in.

The blu-ray features about ten minutes of deleted scenes, which is great.  The high-definition quality is overall nice on the blu-ray, there are a few moments of inconsistancy, but its hardly noticable.  Overall, we recommend this film.  Its a good watch.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
