Newt's movie review

This one screamed Canadian from the first scene where a woman is being interviewed by a reporter from the CBC. It's a talking movie where a group of women discuss their private lives at the gym while their counterparts discuss theirs while making dinner. Nothing else really happens but the talking, but it is worthwhile listening to. It was really funny in places, the dialogue was abrupt and remarkably candid, and I liked this movie. Check it out.
