The First Wives Club
- Rated PG
Matrimonial, as opposed to occupational, 9 to 5, with three high-wattage actresses exacting rah-rah revenge on the husbands who dumped them for younger women. The tripartite story -- an old, old, old story, too -- requires some laborious exposition and development. Each of the stars -- Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton, Bette Midler -- has her moments, if not her integrity. With Sarah Jessica Parker, Dan Hedaya, Stephen Collins, Marcia Gay Harden, Maggie Smith, Eileen Heckart, Elizabeth Berkley, Stockard Channing; directed by Hugh Wilson. 1996.
