Trivia

Most of the dialogue was improvised by the cast, who were given extraordinary creative control over their own characters, even drawing straws to determine which of their characters would die in the story. Director Linda Yellen said, "I never believed this would be accepted commercially." Co-star Jill Eikenberry said filming was like a "week-long therapy session." See more »

The good, the bad, and the orgasms with god!
7 March 2005 | by (Sundance, Utah) – See all my reviews

Hard to believe that this film as based mostly on improv. Seeing as the story has good definition and dialogue that carries through-out. This touching story of seven women reaching together when life gets tough is an absolute joy for men and women alike. Especially for the women, a nice statement on women seen as strong as men. More films should be seen like this, with women portrayed by strong, powerful actresses. Eikenberry, Williams, and Slater are clearly the main women helming the story, with a terrific line of Sheedy, Krouse, Shire, and Plimpton supporting. Film begins out nice and fluffy with girl-to-girl moments in the first act, then turns quite intense in the middle, as certain terms are known to be serious. The tone is set early on as the women are listening to Talia Shire speak honestly about sex with god. How often do we hear former "Supergirl" Helen Slater speak out on orgasms with god? Next you've got Jobeth Williams fornicating with the pizza delivery boy, and a hot-tub as a confession booth! Classic! Should have been theatrical, these women need to be heard!
