Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Lines like this are amusing, but they pop instantly, like soap bubbles.

Audience Reviews

Soapdish is one of my guilt pleasures...such a funny movie with such good actors such as: Sally Field, Whoopie Goldberg, Elizabeth Shue, Robert Downey Jr, Cathy Moriarty, Kevin Kline, and Teri Hatcher. This movie directed by Michael Hoffman shows you what happens behind closed doors on a soap opera....apparently another drama ensues...too funny!

Mildly amusing spoof of daytime soap operas with an amiable cast. But the laughable soap opera scenes are far funnier than the behind the scenes antics, and the similar Tootsie is better.
