The First Wives Club


(out of 5)

Serious alterations have been made to Olivia Goldsmith’s original novel, but it’s possible that even devoted readers will still enjoy it. ,  and  are in peak form as three middle-aged women who are abandoned by their husbands (, ,  respectively) for women much younger than them (, , ). Deciding not to take it lying down, they form a ‘first wives club’, hell bent on getting revenge on their useless men if it’s the last thing they do. The story bumbles around as they go on silly missions, sing a few songs and make way for a host of great cameos (the best being a beautiful  as a helpful social empress), but nothing can keep this movie from being totally entertaining. Beautifully costumed and scored, this film has attitude to spare!
