After years of helping their hubbies climb the ladder of success, three wives have been dumped for newer, curvier models. But the trio is determined to turn their pain into gain. They come up with a cleverly devious plan to hit their exes where it really hurts - in the wallet! Sit back and watch the sparks fly as The Wives get mad, get even and get it all. Justice has seldom been so sweet. Or so much fun.Written by
The fact that Diane Keaton's character's name is "Annie" is a funny coincidence in four ways. 1. Her nickname is Annie. 2. One her most famous roles (as well as Oscar winning role) was playing Annie Hall in Annie Hall. 3. In Father of the Bride, her character's daughter's name is Annie (played by Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and 4. Stephen Collins (who plays her ex husband in this film) would go on to play Rev. Eric Camden in the family drama 7th Heaven where his wife's name in Annie (played by Catherine Hicks). See more »

The First Wives Club is definitely one of the movies for me that works so well because I love all the leads. They all are funny women who know how to work the script because they have done it a million times over. This movie is just great fun from beginning to end in that it is one big drama after another that just seems exaggerated, but again that's what makes the film. Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler are simply wonderful as usual. They throw their lines around and pop their jokes like they are pros at this kind of thing and it shows. Now it is why only the cast make this movie so well that it fails at other times, being pretentious and completely unaccommodating, but if you give it the chance The First Wives Club might surprise you on how well it manages to be a very warming and fun watch for anyone who knows how to handle it. The end sequence is my favorite.
