About this product
- DescriptionBased on a book by Ira Levin which satirizes the roles of 1950s housewives, this is a remake of the 1975 film adaptation. Director Frank Oz presents a dramatic reworking of the horror classic, putting a totally over-the-top slant on the story that gives it true comedic value. In the early 21st century, a fast-paced Manhattan couple, Joanna (Nicole Kidman) and Walter (Matthew Broderick), both work for a major television network. While she is a leader and breadwinner in producing reality shows, he is a mere middle-management type. So when Joanna has a nervous breakdown, and Walter takes command, he's happy to find that for once in his life she's not stealing his fire. This sentiment is only asserted by the boys club that welcomes him when they move to the perfect town of Stepford, Connecticut. There, the women have been transformed by their husbands into a totally submissive, near-robotic state in which they are blissfully happy doing housework and looking pretty, and are totally compliant to their men. With Claire (Glenn Close) and Mike (Christopher Walken) leading this web of weirdness, Joanna and her only normal friend, Bobbie (Bette Midler), race to solve the mystery before they too become Stepford Wives.

I love you... but please die!
I adore Bette Midler - as my username suggests. This is one of her best roles and I think the same must be said of Nicole Kidman (Satine in Moulin Rouge is also one of her best). They are both fiery, funny and work well together. In fact, I would most definately buy any film where Bette Midler, Nicole Kidman and Roger Bart team up again. They work brilliantly together, I think the beginning was fantastic and it was a satisfying and funny ending. The whole film is simply wonderful and I wish I bought it sooner! My favourite bit is the ball at the end. There isn't a bad bit.
