Julia Roberts gave another wonderful performance as a professor with liberal ideas went to Wesley college where women are graduated right into a married life. So, Julia began to shake things up. Her performance isn't the only one who's notewrothy. She has help from Kristin Dunst, Julia Stiles and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The film is a cross between "Dead Poet's Society" and "Far From Heaven." The film paints a protrayal of married life in the 1950's where it usually isn't rosey.

While I thought the movie was good, I don't think it is a movie that needs to be seen in the theater. It's a good movie for a girls night out, or in.
I would never compare it to Dead Poets Society, as Mona Lisa Smile could never fills its shoes. When you see this movie, just enjoy it as it is!

This is a defenate chick-flick. Kind of fun and thought provoking, but not a movie you need to pay to see in the theatre (no special effects or large drops).

This was a great movie! I loved seeing it in the theater, but I don't think it's one of those movies that needs to be viewed on a big screen. It is definitely a wonderful movie to see with your girlfriends. I love chick power movies!

Just a bit too cliche. Solid cast, but way underused.
