5.0 out of 5 stars More Truth than Fiction April 10 2004
By A Customer
There could not be enough films/movies/books dealing with this topic in a nation where over 50% of marriages end in divorce. The next time, however, it might be made more clear how the hypocrisy of wedding vows are never quite evaluated as they actually are: men get adultery, women get housework; men get their way, women get the kids. While it was cast as a comedy, no one dares cast it as the reality too often is, for the sadness it would create. He breaks marriage vows; she keeps them. Same story, over and over and over. Why gays prefer marriage is a mystery since there are far too many broken marriages to count. No wonder the attorneys like it. Perhaps it will work better between gays than it works between heterosexuals where his comforts are met, his money is expected to be his, and you don't make enough for it to matter. Of course, gays probably suspect their marriage will be different, but it seems to come with the territory. Men want freedom; women want security. How this can possibly work with two gay males is unknown; but it may work with two gay females, and be more stable than with heterosexuals. Kids will still be caught in the middle, and torn between the two! Redesigning marriage vows might help with the expectations, as well as the grounds for divorce, but all marriages appear to be measured the same in courts anyway, so unique vows or not, the ending is the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars "If only she'd called me. If only I was listed!" Feb. 16 2004
By M. Hart
In 1996, Hugh Wilson directed a very funny comedy about three friends that were all dumped by their husbands for younger women in the film "First Wives Club". Based upon the 1992 novel of the same name by Olivia Goldsmith (1949-2004), the three friends (who had met in college) are brought back together after their fourth friend, Cynthia Swann Griffin (Stockard Channing), jumped from her penthouse apartment in Manhattan after her husband left and she felt totally alone. Upon learning about each others similar marital problems, the surviving friends, which include the boisterous Brenda Cushman (Bette Midler), the movie actress Elise Elliot (Goldie Hawn) and the timid Annie Paradis (Diane Keaton), decide to work together to attain vengence upon their ex-husbands. Brenda's ex-husband, Morton 'Morty' Cushman (Dan Hedaya), wants to marry the very young and shallow Shelly Stewart (Sarah Jessica Parker). Elise's ex-husband, Bill Atchison (Victor Garber), is dating the very young aspiring actress Phoebe LaVelle (Elizabeth Berkley). Annie's separated husband, Aaron Paradis (Stephen Collins), is having an affair with Annie's therapist, Dr. Leslie Rosen (Marcia Gay Harden). To assist them, the trio of first wives enlist help from their friends, which include the interior decorator Duarto Feliz (Bronson Pinchot), Annie's daughter Chris Paradis (Jennifer Dundas), the socialite Gunilla Garson Goldberg (Maggie Smith) and Brenda's Uncle Carmine (Philip Bosco).
Though the plot was somewhat weak and the acting and screen writing were not Oscar-worthy, "First Wives Club" is still very entertaining and engaging. The most memorable acting comes from Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Victor Garber. The film did receive an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Don't get mad...get everything" Nov. 26 2003
I love this movie! Not only was the cast excellent (3 stellar actresses in the prime of their lives...also of note a pre-Sex and the City Sarah Jessica Parker, and a pre-7th Heaven Stephen Collins), but the story was funny and touching and there was a great message. These women are great rolemodels. Now I saw this in the theater when I was 12; so this clearly was a movie my mom dragged me to see, but I'm glad she did. And I'm glad it's on DVD. But, I wish there could have been SOMETHING in the way of extras. The film was a definite hit, and I remember seeing bloopers on ET or something back in "96, not to mention the trailer alone has about 5 or 6 deleted scenes. So why no extras?! Well, there is the trailer (which has the deleted scenes, clearly filmed, just irrationally not on the disc). However, the movie alone is worth the buy and it's great to see actresses over 30 in a great movie playing great characters. I just wish there were more. Maybe it's time for a sequel. How about seeing the First Wives happily remarried and still helping others get even (now that they've "got everything")?

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Wives Club Nov. 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a rip-roaring, rollicking, hilariously funny movie, which is set out in good taste! The beginning is sad, but sets up the plot of the movie, to which Bette Midler as Brenda, Goldie Hawn as Elyse, and Diane Keaton as Annie bring to an unexpected but rewarding conclusion. The women turn their misfortunes around and go after their exes in a beguiling manner. The three of them paired together have made a movie that is a tribute to all those middle aged women whose husbands have left them for younger women. It brings together all of those in the audience who have been in the same situation.
The scenery is upscale Manhattan. The homes/apartments appropriately reflect the lifestyles to which Brenda, Elyse and Annie were accustomed before their divorces. Brenda's ex-husband has a business which Brenda helped setup. Elyse is a famous actress whose ex-husband rode on her coat tails to climb his way up to director. Annie's ex-husband has a successful advertising business, thanks to Annie. The wives are longtime friends, brought back together after the death of another of their classmates. Over lunch -- and a few drinks -- after the funeral, Brenda, Elyse and Annie find that they have something in common -- that their ex-husbands built their businesses, reputations and wealth from their wives' businesses and family connections (and their wives' sacrifices over the years) only to be dumped by their husbands for younger, sexier women. The wives come up with a devious plan and are primed and ready to go after their ex-husbands with everything they've got! With the help of friends -- and Annie's lesbian daughter -- they set a fast paced approach in carrying out their plan.
