Review And now for something completely different: From Sebastian Gutierrez, scripter of Gothika and Snakes on a Plane, comes Women in Trouble, a wildly uneven but compulsively watchable mix of high camp and grand passions, soap opera and softcore sex. Very much in the deliriously lewd style of Pedro Almodovar -- who has co-written unproduced scripts with Gutierrez, and gets a shout-out in the closing credits -- this exuberantly uninhibited indie has the anything-goes spirit of something tossed off in a single burst of collaborative energy. Auds and critics will have mixed reactions, but theatrical and homevid potential is undeniable...As director, Gutierrez serves his saucy scenario well, maintaining a pace that seldom decelerates from a hot trot while maneuvering through a busy patchwork of interconnected plotlines. But the candy-colored blur wouldn't count for nearly as much without the full-throttle perfs by a virtually all-femme cast, led by a gorgeously game Carla Gugino and a sexily perplexed Adrianne Palicki...Gutierrez's delicate balance has potent impact in Palicki's hilarious yet heartfelt third-act monologue about a childhood trauma. At times, however, the strain shows. It takes a lot of heavy lifting by Gugino to keep the pic from sprawling into tedious silliness as Elektra describes, at length, a bestselling product modeled after a key portion of her anatomy...Standouts among the ensemble cast include Sarah Clarke as a therapist driven to drink by her cheating husband (Simon Baker), Marley Shelton as a starstruck flight attendant who courts disaster while joining the Mile High Club, and Isabella Gutierrez (the writer-director's daughter) as a shrewd adolescent who's more level-headed than many of the adults around her...Reportedly filmed in 12 days by an economy-size crew on a no-frills budget, Women in Trouble is a slick and sexy package with a pulsating score by Robyn Hitchcock and arrestingly bright production design by Daniel Mailley. There's a kicky pop-art look to scene transitions and a refreshing snap to the script's profanely funny dialogue...And, like it or not, there's more to come: After the pic's world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, Gutierrez announced he has already completed the second chapter in a planned trilogy.

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times The sexual humor is often bawdy, and Gutierrez goes right up to the edge of camp.
Kyle Smith, New York Post Delivers plenty of smart dialogue...
