Sometimes amusing and fairly entertaining, occasionally bizarre and mildly scary, consistently uninvolving. The ingredients for a darker, better movie seem to be there, but they are not mixed in the right proportions, which makes the movie uneven; perhaps I should try to see the original from 1975.

Since the movie does not explain in detail how the remarkable invention that is at the core of the story works, the ending may seem to be incompatible with the Stepford wives’ special abilities. I did not take any notice of that while watching the movie, but then I started thinking about that apparent major plot hole and it annoyed me, before realizing what the aforementioned invention probably does (hint: it involves transplantation).
