More quotes from The Stepford Wives

Trivia: The original cut of the movie made it clear that the wives had been replaced by robots. After test audiences hated this revelation, Frank Oz decided to do re shoots to make the wives simply humans with microchips in their brains. With the elimination of a sequence featuring an out-of-control Bette Midler robot and other scenes, this created numerous plot holes and inconsistencies. In a 2007 interview, Frank Oz admitted that the decisions he made were wrong and the film tanked because he "didn't follow his instincts".
