Format: DVD
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.

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")?

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.

Format: VHS Tape
Director: Hugh Wilson
Stars: Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, Stockard Channing, Maggie Smith, Dan Hedaya, Sarah Jessica Parker, Victor Garber, Stephen Collins, Elizabeth Berkley
Released in 2001
College friends lose track of each other after graduation until one of them, Cynthia Swann Griffin, played by Stockard Channing, commits suicide after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. Elise, Brenda, and Annie, played by Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton respectively, reunite at the funeral and find that their lives are not as great as they may seem on the surface. The three have a fun filled lunch and discover their middle-aged husbands have dumped them all for younger women. They decide that it is time to quite being mad and unhappy and start getting even. They support each other in this endeavor and find they have strengths they have forgotten about. Elsie, an actress with financial means to back this endeavor is fun and paired with Brenda and Annie make their ex-husband's and soon to be ex-husband's lives miserable. Elsie who is having to split her assets with her soon to be ex-husband as well as pay alimony decides to sell all of their assets to Annie for a dollar. Annie then auctions it off to build enough reserves to buy her soon to be ex-husband's partners out of their share of an advertising firm. The three women find the self-confidence they lost over the years and decide to help other women in similar situations find their strengths and lost self-confidence. Watching these three great actresses get their revenge is entertaining and added bonus is the witty, bitter character Gunilla Garson Goldberg played by Maggie Smith, who has been made wealthy by her several ex-husbands. First Wives Club is a movie that is fun to watch again and again.
