“..just like its meaningless title, Rachid Bouchareb's disappointing drama evokes better works without developing any distinct identity of its own..”

2 of 5

“..but it's a shame Ms. Miller has to try so hard, to grimace so much, to add emotional embellishment to compensate for a weak script..”
by Miriam Bale [New York Times]
“..a multicultural mini-Thelma and Louise but far duller than that description implies, Just Like a Woman peddles feminist empowerment with one-note didacticism..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
