The First Wives Club

BBBB (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. Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton are in peak form as three middle-aged women who are abandoned by their husbands (Dan Hedaya, Victor Garber, Stephen Collins respectively) for women much younger than … More The First Wives Club

The Out-Of-Towners

BB.5 (out of 5) Remarkably unremarkable comedy that should have been better considering the talent involved; on the other hand, Neil Simon’s original script didn’t exactly turn heads when it was first filmed in 1969, so why on earth would doing it again make it any better?  Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin ably fill in for Jack … More The Out-Of-Towners

Housesitter

BBB.5 (out of 5) This film doesn’t deserve to be as funny as it is, but with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn in the leads, how can you go wrong? Martin plays a jilted lover whose fiancee (Dana Delany) turned down his proposal of marriage after he purchased them a brand new home. Spilling the story … More Housesitter

Overboard

B (out of 5) One of Goldie Hawn‘s worst comedies is this utterly charmless piece of trash co-starring real-life partner Kurt Russell. She plays a millionaire’s wife with an attitude problem who falls off her expensive yacht and loses her memory. Acting on a silly impulse, widowed handyman Russell convinces her that she’s his wife … More Overboard
