The First Wives Club


firstwivesclubElise, Annie and Brenda (Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton, Bette Midler) were best friends in college; after reuniting many years later, they find theyā€™re all divorced and decide to exact revenge on their exes.Ā The 1980s had Fonda, Parton and Tomlin getting even inĀ Nine to Five; the 1990s equivalent is less entertaining. The script is paper-thin, but the cast is better; the three stars take advantage of their familiar personalities and match each other well, and Maggie Smith is fun as their snobbish ally. The movie ends with an amusing but pointless song-and-dance act.

1996-U.S. 102 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Hugh Wilson.Ā Novel:Ā Olivia Goldsmith.Ā Cast:Ā Goldie Hawn (Elise Eliot), Bette Midler (Brenda Morelli), Diane Keaton (Annie MacDuggan), Maggie Smith, Dan Hedaya, Stockard Channingā€¦ Sarah Jessica Parker, Marcia Gay Harden, Rob Reiner… J.K. Simmons.Ā Cameos:Ā Heather Locklear, Ivana Trump, Ed Koch.

Trivia:Ā Jessica Lange was allegedly considered for the part of Elise.

Quote:Ā ā€œBrenda, I speak on behalf of your father, my beloved brother, that Morty is garbage, and it would be an honor to me to take him out.ā€ (Philip Bosco to Midler, commenting on her husband)
