Did You Know?


To make Farrah Fawcett more comfortable for her nude scene in the fountain, director 'Robert Altman' had cleared the entire stage of people, except for himself, the director of photography, and the sound recordist. To everyone's surprise, she refused to do the scene without the crowd, stating she was not at all embarrassed by her naked body. So the extras were let in, she performed the scene completely naked, and received a standing ovation from the crowd afterwards. See more »


When Carolyn enters Dr. T's office to seduce him, she locks the door behind her, although she has already locked the entrance door. While unnecessary, this is not wrong. Dr. Travis gets out of his office without unlocking the door first; most doors are designed to allow exactly this. See more »

A Sarcastic good movie about Texas
14 August 2007 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Gere appears to be having such a luscious time surrounded by the film's fuzzy sketch of genteel, grotesque, distaff Texas that he's forgotten to be smug. A surprisingly spry and funny film with a solidly serious core. The slightly anachronistic absurdity of the conceit -- the travails of a lone gentleman in a world of ladies -- gives the actors room to do some wonderful work. It was a sweet film with some bizarre touches in its satire of the bourgeois.Dr. T and the Women may put off people who only look for action and a plot-by-numbers storyline, but should be seen by people who crave adventurous film making. Watch it with a open mind.
