a disappointment, but nice-looking
9 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was disappointed that Lois Weber's "Too Wise Wives" promotes the idea that husbands need to teach their misdirected wives how to behave. Also, I agree with Larry R's comments about the intertitles being too long and dull--actually, the whole film is quite slow to a modern viewer. Most of the performances are fairly realistic and the actors engaging--Weber has an eye for elegant, handsome players, and launched the careers of some--but the story of two marriages, each of which could use improvement, is not exactly riveting. 20's and costume buffs will be interested in the shots of Hollywood bungalows and a lengthy visit to an upscale women's clothing store. Also, many of the period details, such as fried chicken for breakfast*, will be novel to 21st-century dwellers. I'm glad this film was preserved for historians, but most regular folk won't miss anything by not seeing it. I'm hoping for better things from "The Blot".

*not typical in the San Francisco Bay Area, anyway.
