Dated, Funny, Indulgent, Unconvincing

See it if you've never seen HC.. Its good intentions & jokes make it worthwhile. But it's also dated and frustrating. Women still face same issues.

Don't see it if you are bothered by the end solution (a baby!) to a single woman's problems. Weird combo of too much and too little.

65
Banal, Cliched, Dated, Disappointing

See it if if you don't have anything better to do.

Don't see it if you want to see something that is relevant to this day and age and plots that make you care about the theme of the show.

65
Dated, Disappointing, Mediocre

See it if You're a fan of Elizabeth Moss, are a feminist and enjoy stories of women trying to navigate through life.

Don't see it if If you are looking to see something that breaks the mold & offers anything more than your average chick flick. It's not bad, but not great

65
Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent, Relevant, Insipid

See it if you like the actors (who gave good performances) or relate to an 80's idea of a liberated woman. Some around me were in tears, so clearly do

Don't see it if you would find a supposed heroine who struggles to speak up for herself and mopes over an asshole for years a bore.

58
Indulgent, Overrated

See it if you are interested in theatre history. I can't say this show holds up nearly as well.

Don't see it if you saw If/Then and didn't like it.

68
Dated, Disappointing, Cliched, Intelligent, Overrated

See it if you'd like a slight but interesting visit to the 60's and 70s, in a thoughtful if unoriginal look at women's position in society.

Don't see it if you want either pure fluff, or a very up-to-date commentary on social issues

69
Cliched, Dated, Indulgent, Overrated, Slow

See it if you like the idea of the story

Don't see it if for the acting. terrible

Don't see it if if you're expecting great acting

69
