Set in Los Angeles, Women in Trouble is an ensemble comedy which follows ten woman over the course of 24 hours. The film begins with porn starlet Electra Luxx, whose life has been turned upside down by the discovery that she is pregnant. From there the film bounces around, following up-and-coming porn star Holly Rocket, her friend Bambi, a therapist whose just discovered her husband has been unfaithful, a successful business woman with a secret, and a flight attendant. Sebastian Gutierrez' Women in Trouble is a film which sets out to show women in their eclectic variety, but the director's penchant for showing off the female form seems to get in the way of any type of interesting statement. This is a film that's loaded with beautiful woman, with many of them scantly dressed. Being a red-blooded typical heterosexual male this didn't bother me per se, but I began to question whether this film was simply the director's excuse to get a bunch of attractive women together. Like most ensemble flicks, the film has these characters lives intersect, but in this film their connections are mundane and trivial, with the director never seeming to have anything profound or interesting to say. I believe the point of Woman In Trouble is to capture how most people aren't nearly as well adjusted and perfect as they let on, showing how everyone from all walks of life have issues. Unfortunately it's a very shallow attempt that doesn't carry much emotional weight outside maybe one sequence towards the end which almost feels out of place in doing so. I guess the characters from top to bottom are just two one-note, regardless of how much humanity the film tries to instill. Sebastian Gutierrez's Women in Trouble has a few decent comedic moments through out but the film feels rather empty and devoid of much meaning thanks to the film's thin material.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
