The upside to being a man's first wife is that you get to enjoy pre-Viagra sex with him.
However, that's no consolation for the ditched dames in this comedy.
Brenda (Bette Midler), Elise (Goldie Hawn) and Annie (Diane Keaton) commiserate over their college friend's (Stockard Channing) recent suicide.
Suffering from failed marriages themselves, and fearing a similar fate to their friend, the women decide to form a club and get revenge on their insignificant others (Dan Hedaya, Victor Garber, Stephen Collins) and their mistresses (Sarah Jessica Parker, Marcia Gay Harden, Elizabeth Berkley).
With help from a socialite (Maggie Smith), they also hope to turn their husbands cruelty into a woman's charity.
By not having the characters rely on a Prince Charming to save them, or implausible theatrics to redeem them, this ditzy comedy empowers women to strive for more.
However, the wealthiest women still belong to the Last Wives Club.
