WOMEN IN TROUBLE

WOMEN IN TROUBLE  5

THE PLOT THUS FAR

A serpentine day in the life of ten seemingly disparate women: a porn star, a flight attendant, a psychiatrist, a masseuse, a bartender, a pair of call girls, etc. All of them with one crucial thing in common. Trouble.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

Characters come and go at a dizzying pace — and they all seem to be clad in bustiers, garters and thongs at first blush. The story revolves around a collection of disparate women: a flight attendant, porn star, psychiatrist, massage therapist, bartender, call girls, psychiatrist, and mother and daughter whose problems revolve around fickle men behaving badly.  Authenticity in larger-than-life character roles is no small feat, but name actors pull it off — mostly.

Director Gutierrez unleashes an uninhibited soap opera about the intersecting lives of a number of women dealing with life-altering crises. Newly pregnant porn star Elektra (Gugino) gets stuck in an elevator with nervous neurotic Doris (Britton). Meanwhile her X-rated co-star Holly Rocket (Palicki) takes on a private client with her pal Bambi (Chriqui). As the plotlines intertwine, the characters are linked by a series of coincidences and their effects. Raunchy behavior and dialogue may offend those with delicate sensibilities.

The Blu-Ray is loaded with an indie perfect transfer. Sure, the plain jane 5.1 surround track could’ve done a better job cleaning up dialogue problems. But, the field of depth and level of HD clarity made this film look more polished than I thought possible. The other special features are a collection of deleted scenes and trailers. I’d recommend a cautious buy.
