Dallas gynecologist Sully Travis (Richard Gere) is constantly challenged by women; his wife (Farrah Fawcett) is mentally ill and he finds himself attracted to a golf teacher (Helen Hunt). I admire director Robert Altman, but this is one of those films where he’s just being silly. There’s plenty of women here and they’re wealthy, plastic-looking, neurotic, shallow, and constantly talking. Dr. T gets into a lot of trouble with them and the movie is amusing on a minor level, but also tiring. Still, scenes like those in the waiting room are what Altman does best.
