Dramatic and fun. Good for Andrew MacCarthy and Jennifer Dundas fans! : )
This is a well written, overlooked movie from the 1980's with good casting. All the characters work good together to help draw you into the story. It's not that often you see Andrew McCarthy in a dramatic role, which he does a good job, and also a young Jennifer Dundas. I first saw her in Little Gloria, Happy At Last, which she gave an amazing performance as "little Gloria". Then to see her all grown up in The First Wives Club, it was nice to see she was still in films.
I, as well, saw this as a child :~) and I just purchased it for my son, who is 9, to enjoy as well. I think those who saw this when they were younger would appreciate it more than a grown adult first timer. This is certainly not a Friday Night Date Night Movie, it's more of a Saturday morning, rainy day movie. :~)
