Dr. T & the Women

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. 

2000-U.S. 122 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Robert Altman. Cast: Richard Gere (Sully Travis), Helen Hunt (Bree Davis), Farrah Fawcett (Kate Travis), Laura Dern, Shelley Long, Tara Reid… Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler, Lee Grant.

Trivia: Shelley Long reportedly replaced Goldie Hawn.
