Fun movie for women--great premise but typical ending..
12 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

Saw this movie many years ago and couldn't remember the

title. Found IMD and there it was! I loved the idea of women frustrated in their lives finding a bit of happiness at a local tavern. I was disappointed with the ending but I would recommend to all women wanting a light, fun movie. And there's a message for all the guys out there...!
