Storyline

Dr. Sullivan Travis "Dr. T." is a wealthy Dallas gynecologist for some of the wealthiest women in Texas who finds his idealist life beginning to fall apart starting when his wife, Kate, suffers a nervous breakdown and is committed to the state mental hospital. Dr. T's eldest daughter, Dee Dee, is planning to go through with her approaching wedding despite the secret that she's a lesbian and is romantically involved with Marilyn, the maid of honor. Dr T's youngest daughter, Connie, is a conspiracy theorist freak who has her own agenda to everything, while Dr. T's loyal secretary, Carolyn, has romantic feelings for him, which are not mutual. Dr. T's sister-in-law, Peggy, meddles in every situation she stumbles into, while one woman, Bree, a golf instructor, is the only one who offers him any comfort and salvation. Written by Anonymous

Watch it for the women
10 September 2001 | by da cissy pimpSee all my reviews

I must admit that the only reason I went to see this film was so that I could perve upon one of the actresses in it: namely, the lovely Liv Tyler (most devastated was I to learn of her engagement earlier in the year). While she did not disappoint, the film as a whole was a little on the lacklustre side: dragging on for far too long and seeming a little aimless (maybe it would have been a bit more entertaining if the title character had been MR T). It wasn't all bad, though. Its portrayal of a gynaecologist as some sort of (perhaps unlikely) sex symbol was rather interesting, and the town that it was set in (one filled with rich, beautiful women) was one that I'd certainly like to take up residence in myself. Oh, and the loonies in the rocking chairs were good for a laugh too.
