Storyline

The New Women is a post-apocalyptic adventure about Lisa LaStrada (Mary Woronov) and her small town group of women friends who clearly haven't come a long way, baby. Lisa spends her nights pining over the infidelities of her philandering sheriff husband who is having an affair with her nemesis, Virginia Van Upp (Roma Maffia). A recovering alcoholic, Lisa falls off the wagon and tries in vain to drown her sorrows in booze, drugs and RV fantasies until one day, at a local barbeque, along comes a huge rainstorm that quite literally puts everyone in the entire world to sleep. In a couple of days, slowly but surely, all of the women wake up to a world that has come to a complete standstill. Well, not a complete standstill, their men remain fast asleep in comas, getting erections every forty-five minutes. There was definitely something in that rain! Now Lisa and her friends struggle to rebuild their world (and face their issues of low self-esteem) until they realize by degrees, as their men... Written by <info@thenewwomen.com>

Mary Woronov is terrific in this hilarious sci-fi spoof.
18 November 2001 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Wonderful sci-fi take on George Cukor's classic THE WOMEN. The witty script is filled with smart satire and great dialogue. Mary Woronov from EATING RAOUL and DEATH RACE 200O is brilliant in the leading role of Lisa LaStrada. She carries the movie with an inspired performance that shows off her wide range of comic and dramatic talents. Jamie Tolbert, Sandra Kinder and Jane Ray are outstanding newcomers who play Woronov's friends. Roma Maffia from PROFILER gives an exceptional comic performance as the town tramp and Amy Hill from ALL AMERICAN GIRL brings down the house as a new-age guru. If you can see this movie, DO IT!
