Los Angeles Times
Sebastian Gutierrez’s entertaining and determinedly racy “Women in Trouble” has a lot going for it, despite its modest budget, little-known cast and reported 12-day shooting schedule. The title alone suggests Pedro Almodóvar, and while Gutierrez similarly can mine an extravagant multi-character soap opera plot for both outrageous hilarity and surprising depth, he is more interested in creating an irresistible entertainment that affords nine talented actresses sensational roles than in projecting a vision laced with irony in the Almodóvar manner.

Imagine Russ Meyer directing a Lifetime movie and you get an inkling of the film’s high camp, though that still might not prepare you for a full 90-minute session with writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez’s Victoria’s Secret School of Philosophy. Read More

To judge by the swelling bosoms spilling out of the frame, the lingerie bill for “Women in Trouble” must have been estimable. An ensemble piece that never coheres despite a clutch of appealing actresses — notably Carla Gugino and Emmanuelle Chriqui — this movie was written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez, whose screenplay credits include “The Big Bounce” (the remake), “Gothika” and “Snakes on a Plane.” It’s a discouraging list, true, but Ms. Gugino, an interesting actress who has yet to find a big-screen career worthy of her, seemed reason alone to take the chance. (And Robyn Hitchcock did the score.) Read More

Women in Trouble Synopsis: A pregnant porn star, a couple of call girls, a scorned psychiatrist, a teenage goth, a flight attendant with a crush on a famous passenger… the troubles of this cluster of LA women couldn’t be more different, but on one crazy day feminine compassion will alter all of their lives. Devilish humor, razor-sharp scripting, and a knockout ensemble of talented actresses (including Carla Gugino, Connie Britton, and Marley Shelton) turn Trouble into pure pleasure.
