From Spring Movie Prevue

Mister D: I had heard rumours of musical numbers, but I’ll believe it when I see it…

“The Stepford Wives”
Paramount Pictures

Starring: Nicole Kidman, Matthew Broderick, Roger Bart, Glenn Close, Faith Hill, Bette Midler, Christopher Walken, Mike White, Lisa Masters, Jon Lovitz
Director: Frank Oz

The story: Kidman and Broderick star as a couple who move into a suburb where all the wives seem just a bit “robotic.” Midler co-stars as the one other woman in the neighborhood who still seems normal. Though the original film was rather a straight sci-fi thriller, this remake is more of a dark comedy, complete with musical numbers from Midler, Hill and Kidman.

What’s the buzz: According to Entertainment Weekly, Midler and Walken both clashed with director Oz (“Bowfinger,” “Dirty Rotten Scandals”) on the set, which may not bode well. However, Oz and screenwriter Paul Rudnick did successfully team for the film “In & Out.” It will be interesting to see what kind of chemistry, if any, Kidman and Broderick cook up; undoubtedly, she had to pull out those low-heeled shoes she used to wear when she was married to Tom Cruise.
