Is Curves that bad? Other options?

Is Curves International (i.e. the company behind Curves gyms) really that bad? If it is, are there any other gyms that are similar to this chain in terms of target clientele and training plan?

I've read the controversies about the CEO of Curves - articles stating that he donates large amounts of money to pro-life/anti-abortion groups; and then rebuttals stating that he gives money to many different organizations, this was just one of them, and he'll reduce the amount. Almost everyone I've talked to about this is pretty anti-Curves.
But, I am getting a little blubbery due to my sedentary job, and there is a Curves in a really convenient location that I pass on my way home from work. I like the fact that they are women-only, and they offer a fast circuit workout.
So is the controversy really true? If so, is there a similar gym I might join that is women-only and offers the same quick type of circuit program? Particularly in the King of Prussia, PA area?
