Joanna Eberhart, a wildly succesful president of a TV Network, after a series of shocking events suffers a nervous breakdown and is moved by her milquetoast of a husband, Walter, from Manhattan to the chic, upper-class and very modern planned community of Stepford, Connecticut. Once there, she makes good friends with the ascerbic Bobbie Markowitz, a jewish writer who's also a recovering alcoholic. Together they find out, much to their growing stupor and-then horror, that all the housewives in town are strangely blissful, and somehow... doomed. What is going on behind the closed doors of the Stepford Men's Association and the Stepford Day Spa? Why is everything perfect here? Will it be too late for Joanna and Bobbie when they finally find out? Written by

NOTE: I did NOT see the 1975 version, which I've heard is much better.
I took three 13 year olds to see this and had no expectations when entering the theatre. In fact, I didn't know what the movie was about except that it had Matt Broderick and Chris Walken and that always equals a good time. I am a huge fan of dark comedies and would label this a soft-dark comedy (a light comedy? ha) that is easy to watch and has an organized feel. There is a creepy and eerie edge throughout the film and I often wondered whether I should be laughing or should if I should be feeling sorry for the characters. (I love that feeling, I always feel like the jerk in the theatre)(And yes, I usually laugh instead) Overall, I kinda liked it and I thought there was something to it..I just don't know what. I will say it could have been a lot darker and I plan on checking out the other version.
SNACK ATTACK FOR THIS FILM: freshly baked cupcakes and an apple. At least that's what I felt like eating during this one. (check out my other reviews for snack attack suggestions)
