Guerra dos Sexos is a Brazilian telenovela produced and originally aired by Globo from October 1, 2012 to April 26, 2013 in 179 chapters, with the last chapter re-aired on April 27, 2013.

Written by Silvio de Abreu, it is a remake of the 1983 telenovela of the same name, written by Silvio himself.
Why It's A Complete War Of The Sexes
- The central theme of the telenovela, which is about the war between men and women that was relevant in the 1980s in the original 1983 version, is outdated, especially for a telenovela made in the 2010s and it's sexist because of it.
- The direction of the telenovela, made by the late Jorge Fernando, as much as he was a good director (he also did a great direction in the original 1983 version), was very exaggerated in this 2012 version.
- Although the cast's performance being good, is far above the tone, due to the exaggeration of the direction of the soap opera.
- Terribly ended the career of Silvio de Abreu as an author, since he did not write any more soap operas on Rede Globo and made him become the director of dramaturgy at Globo who was a horrible director, despite that, before this soap opera, the only bad soap opera by the author was As Filhas da Mãe.
- Despite the performance of the cast of the soap opera is above the tone, is good, especially from Drica Moraes and Reynaldo Gianecchini, who have recovered from two horrible cancers they had in 2010 and 2011 (leukemia for the former and lymphoma for the latter).
- The opening is great, in addition to recreating the breakfast scene from the original 1983 version, also the CGI animation and the new version of the opening theme made by The Originals (which had some members of The Fevers, who made the original version of the theme song from the 1983 version) are good.
The telenovela was criticized by the most renowned specialists and communication and entertainment channels. The main target of these criticisms was the central theme of the novel, which was the dispute between men and women. Quite relevant in the 1980s, the theme was seen as dated in the 21st century. As it was an outdated theme, there was no point in approaching it in a soap opera, even more so as the central point of the whole story. The exaggerated direction of the soap opera was also criticized, as well as the actors' performance, seen with above tone.
Class C and D rejected the soap opera and its comic characters. After several researches it was proven that viewers wanted a more romantic and melodramatic theme to hook the audience. As a result, the love triangle between Nando (Reynaldo Gianecchini), Roberta (Glória Pires) and Juliana (Mariana Ximenes) ended up gaining more space in the plot, while the main nucleus between the comic dispute between the cousins Charlô (Irene Ravache) and Otávio (Tony Ramos) was erased from the plot.
