Stepford Wives

Stepford Wives

has got to be the funniest movie I have ever seen, at least in the last 15 years (which isn't saying alot, I don't often go to movies). My 20 year old son and I went yesterday, and I cannot remember laughing so much or so hard for a long time, which may say more about me than the movie. My son (a college junior) didn't think it was nearly as funny as I did. I guess you had to be there (the 50/60/70's feminism)
Anyway, the movie is campy and very overdone, which I found hysterical. The best scene is definitely the 'book club' one with Bette Midler, altho Glenn Close at the end of the ball is almost perfect. Nicole Kidman is not one of my favorite actresses, but I can't imagine anyone who could have done a better job.
Just don't expect it to be like Ira Levin's book, or the previous movie. See Ebert's review here.
