The other night, I went and caught a showing of the Stepford Wives. I can vaguely remember the original, so the basic plot wasn’t going to be a shock. However, I had read that they were going to do the remake as a black comedy, so I was interested in checking it out.
There were some chuckles here and there, mostly (actually almost completely) playing to stereotypes. But I couldn’t say that this was a good movie. It didn’t go far enough to work as a satire (and there were far too many strawmen to really be able to buy into it), and the comedy was obvious and one dimensional.
