This movie is about a group of women who meet, gradually make firm friends and discover the men in their lives haven't treated any of them fairly so they take matters into their own hands - I don't want to spoil the fun for those who haven't seen this film by giving away the plot.
I would always watch it on TV if it was ever shown and recommend it to everyone. I would love to be able to buy a DVD of this movie, it cheers me up so much.
Lauren Bacall and Ruth Gordon are at their best and as one would expect of a film by Nora Ephron one couldn't find a more charming, amusing way to spend an evening than by watch this.
