It’s a wispy movie that does not end so much as peter out, and it could have benefited from a little more humor and a little less heinous male behavior.

This well-intentioned buddy-road-trip flick lacks the danger, the drama and the sex appeal that most moviegoers will be looking for. Read full review
Miller, who's still trying to find her way as an actress, isn't bad, and the Iranian-born Farahani is convincing, but their characters are blandly angelic, in stark contrast to the vast majority of men they encounter. Read full review

All that's missing from Just Like a Woman, Rachid Bouchareb's salute to "Thelma & Louise," is the quality. Read full review
A multicultural mini–Thelma and Louise but far duller than that description implies, Just Like a Woman peddles feminist empowerment with one-note didacticism. Read full review
