Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her


Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her Review

What happens when you put big stars Glenn Close, Cameron Diaz, Calista Flockhart, Amy Brenneman, and Holly Hunter in a movie together? You go straight to cable, that's what happens. This practically Made for Lifetime feature tells five vaguely interlocking stories about women at crossroads in their lives. One is pregnant and doesn't want the child. One is a lesbian with a dying lover. One is infatuated with the dwarf who lives across the street. You know, your ordinary middle America stuff.

Why didn't this movie find more success? I dunno, maybe it has something to do with the fact that there are two scenes of women sitting on the toilet in the first 20 minutes. Or it could be that it's too chatty, too meandering, and too random to ever really engage the viewer. Whatever, I still don't know what I'm supposed to be able to tell, you know, just by looking at her.

Not to be confused with Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead.

I can tell she doesn't eat enough.
