Remake of the spooky 70's classic. Joanna Eberhart (Kidman) is a successful television network executive fired after a reality show disaster. Joanna, her husband Walter (Broderick) and their family move to the seemingly perfect Connecticut town of Stepford. Strangely enough, the impeccably perfect bombshell women of Stepford have no other interests than housecleaning and making their rather nerdy-looking husbands happy. Trades eerie suspense of the original for campy comedy. While there are some well placed barbs and one-liners, plot holds no surprises and loses the satirical edge of the source material. Walker, as the community leader who holds the secret to Stepford, and Midler as a fellow outsider, do well in their respective roles.

The Stepford Wives
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

This movie is really weird and I don't like Nicole Kidman. This is about a family who has to start their lives over again after the parents leave their jobs. They move to a place called Stepford, but this gated-community appears to be a little too good to be true. The women all act as though they've been brain-washed and the men just seem to sit around the men's club all day. After two of Kidman's new friends seem to have undergone a change, she's determined to leave, but trouble comes along while trying to leave.

The remake of the The Stepford Wives hit theaters in 2004, with a run time of 93 minutes. Joanna Eberhart (Nicole Kidman) was a successful TV executive until she lost her job. She then suffers from a nervous breakdown. So Joanna, her husband Walter (Matthew Broderick), and their child move to Stepford, Connecticut, an upperclass community. There, everything seems perfect. Joanna starts to feel comfortable there and meets her two good friends, Bobbie (Bette Midler) and Roger (Roger Bart). The three soon start noticing that all the woman of Stepford seems to be perfect. They were always pleasant, smiley, dressed well, and in good moods all the time. And all the men of Stepford hung out in the Stepford Men’s Association. What was going on behind those closed doors? Will the three figure out what’s going on in Stepford before they turn into another “perfect” model of Stepford?
