Although I haven't seen the original version of "The Stepford Wives", i understood the general idea before i watched this years remake. However, this knowledge makes the "surprise" twists during the film easily predictable, although the female-dominated-male-dominated-world one at the was a bit of a surprise.

The cast do their job well enough; Kidman does well as the ex-career woman trying to unravel Stepfords secrets, Broderick is fairly effective as the husband who always came in second, Walken is well cast as the calm, authoritative leader, and Close does well as the woman behind-the-scenes. Unfortunately, it takes a little more than good acting to make a good film. Most of the jokes are flat and none of the twists are really shocking; its all a little mechanical.

"The Stepford Wives" has been described as a "very modern comedy thriller", and maybe this is right. Except without the jokes. Or the thrills.
