Storyline

A TV reporter arrives in Stepford to do a story on the American town with the lowest crime and divorce rates and the tightest real-estate market (no one ever leaves). She needs an assistant, and after interviewing the seemingly-plastic women of Stepford, jumps at the chance to hire the down-to-earth Megan, who's married to a newly-hired cop who hasn't yet moved into the town. Four times a day a siren sounds and every woman in town takes a pill (they each claim it's a thyroid condition). Accidents start to happen, Megan disappears for a couple of days, and the reporter realizes something is amiss. When Megan returns as a full-fledged Stepford wife, it's time for action.

It's ten years later, the men still want the perfect wife
25 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One surefire to kill a potential franchise is by making sequels for television. Sometimes this starts at part 2, but others it can happen once they stop making big bucks at the Box Office. One of the biggest offenders is the completely unnecessary 'Omen IV: The Awakening,' which if you've seen III shouldn't even exist. 'The Stepford Wives' was not a big success in America, but went on to have a big cult following. This led to three made for TV sequels, and this first one isn't half bad.

Pros: Well acted. Actually a pretty good story. Decent score. Moves at a quick pace. Some memorable chills. Nice scenery. Dynamite final moments.

Cons: Bland direction. Really has nothing new to say on the subject. Cheap production values. Lacks the dark humor of it's predecessor.

Final thoughts: Making a sequel to the original was actually a good idea. Of course this isn't nearly as good, but it's got enough going for it to be worth watching. Fortunately it does not simply repeat the first film, but rather has similar themes and a different plot.

My rating: 3/5
