“Women in Trouble” is not a chick flick

 
 

Sebastian Gutierrez‘s new film, Women in Trouble, is about 10 women living in L.A. has an amazing ensemble cast which includes Emmanuelle Chirqui (Entourage) and Elizabeth Berkley (Showgirls, The L Word). A film about 10 different women’s lives can hardly be summed up in a sentence or two, so I’ll let stars Carla Gugino and Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) tell you why you should take interest in Women in Trouble. Take note, they’re in character — as their on-screen stripper personas.

Warning: NSFW language.

If that isn’t enough information about the film for you, then allow me to expand on why I’m interested in seeing it, myself. Early reviews indicate that there are several sorts of bisexual flirting involved in the movie, including Adrianne’s character, Holly, and Emmanuelle’s Bambi agreeing to perform a “sister act” as call girls one night. However, “bad things happen” and it doesn’t go off as planned.

And on a blog dedicated to the film, run by the fictional Electra Luxx, the character of Darby (Cameron Richardson) is described as a vegan that is “currently exploring a bisexual phase.”

And lastly, there’s a clue that Holly herself might fall in love with another woman at some point in the film. I get this from a point in the new trailer where she says, “She’s so stupid she doesn’t realize I have feelings for her.” I get the idea it’s about Bambi, but I could be wrong. Check it out:

OK, it definitely doesn’t sound like a typical chick flick. In fact, it sounds like the perfect anti-chick flick, and I’m psyched to see how these 10 women interact with one another and how it ends with sequel potential, as there is already one (Elektra Luxx) in the works.

Women in Trouble opens in theaters Nov. 13. Will you be seeing it this fall?
