When Cynthia commits suicide because she is unhappy, her three estranged best friends meet again to discover that they are all having her same problem. Their ex-husbands are all dating younger women. Well, anyone else might just consider it over and that the world is sick and twisted. And that this just is not right. But, these are three strong women. So together, they decide to let their ex-hubbies have it by using damaging personal information to take them for everything they've got.
One word describes this film - fabulous! At times, it's heavy-handed and over the top, but by the end... girl power rules! Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler are wonderfully professional and allow us to adore the majorly flawed characters. Even in the story's attempt to moralize us and feel it can now handle a general good will for all women vibe. Come out of the kitchen and see The First Wives Club. Sarah Jessica Parker and Maggie Smith have great guest parts. But not cameos, the sisters in this cast are doing it for themselves. *** out of ****
