The Stepford Wives


stepfordwives04Cynical TV producer Joanna Eberhardt (Nicole Kidman) moves away from New York with husband Walter (Matthew Broderick) and settles down in a small town where every woman seems to come straight out of a Republican fantasy about the 1950s. This remake of the 1975 classic keeps the satirical content, but the shock of the original is sorely missing (alas, itā€™s no longer much of a secret) and the jokes arenā€™t that funny. Roger Bart gives the film’s most amusing performance as a ā€œStepford husbandā€, but Christopher Walken sadly doesnā€™t do much with his part.

2004-U.S. 93 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Frank Oz.Ā Cast:Ā Nicole Kidman (Joanna Eberhart), Matthew Broderick (Walter Kresby), Bette Midler (Bobbie Markowitz), Glenn Close, Christopher Walken, Roger Bartā€¦ Jon Lovitz, Faith Hill.
