The contrary streak in Robert Altman's work is particularly evident in Dr T & the Women, which casts Richard Gere as a smooth, upper-crust Dallas gynaecologist surrounded by dotty women. Surprisingly Gere does not play the sensitive seducer but a genuine admirer of women who is nevertheless progressively bewildered by the sheer number of neurotic females within his life. Dr Sullivan Travis (Gere) tries to cope with a wife (Farrah Fawcett) who reverts to childhood thanks to a rare psychological syndrome brought on by being loved and cared for too much, a sister-in-law (Laura Dern) who tipples and talks constantly as she tries to run the household, one daughter (Kate Hudson) who is about to have an elaborate wedding even though she is actually in love with a college friend (Liv Tyler) and another daughter (Tara Reid) who works in the local assassination conspiracy tourist industry, not to mention a nurse (Shelley Long) who is blindly in love with him and a deceptively sensible golf pro (Helen Hunt) who isn't. Unlike Gosford Park, this isn't major Altman--it draws a little too much on some of his earlier hits and sometimes twitters too close to low comedy--but it has many of his unique virtues: a sort of cynical warmth in entering an enclosed, oddball world (here, a side of Texas rarely seen on screen) and an uncanny ability to draw the best out of an apparently randomly assembled ensemble cast.

On the DVD: A flawless 1:2.35 letterboxed print, enhanced for 16x9. Otherwise, it's a very nice package. A commentary track assembles thoughts from Altman, screenwriter Anne Rapp and a large amount of the cast, all offering insight into the unusual way that Altman puts a film together and often throwing in surprising bits of information (that Farrah Fawcett was offered Basic Instinct but turned it down because of the nudity, though she has a tasteful clothes-off scene here). Also, a standard making-of short with more soundbites, the theatrical trailer, a few filmographies and a 15-minute to-camera interview with Altman. --Kim Newman

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst film ever made! 9 July 2003
By A Customer
Once again another stinker from Robert Altman. It is incomprehensible to me how he manages to convince so many famous name actors to star in his films, especially when he manages to churn out such appalling rubbish as this film. Sadly not even they managed to improve the quality of his directing this time, as they have in his rare hits (Gosford Park, The Player, MASH).
To sum up this film consists of what seems like hours of inane babbling followed the most ridiculous (and revolting) endings I have ever seen.
Save your money, buy something else........anything else!

1.0 out of 5 stars I must have missed something 16 July 2010
By Dag
I have to say this is one of the least interesting movies I have ever watched. The plot is boring, which of course is somewhat subjective. However, the whole story is inconsistent, hard to follow and the movie ends with just a big hanging question mark. My suggestion is to avoid, it's not worth your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unlike most, I actually liked this! 29 Aug 2010
By K. Gordon TOP 500 REVIEWER
I'm out of sync with the world on some of the later Altman films. While I liked `Cookie's Fortune' less than most people, I liked this more. Funny, sweet, and about as good as Richard Gere has ever been. The last 20 minutes are indeed a mixed bag. Personally I liked the symbolic, surreal ending, but some of the plot twists leading up to it felt clunky, and didn't make a lot of sense to me.

But the bottom line was, this is certainly more original than most modern movies. And that's enough to win a lot of brownie points from me

1.0 out of 5 stars Under-cover tripe 25 Jan 2006
I've seen and liked a number of Altman's films, but this is one to avoid like the plague. Certainly of no interest whatsoever to the intelligent viewer. A poor storyline and even worse cinematography. Save your money, buy something else.
