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.
When the three ladies meet after the funeral, they are talking about Elise's (Goldie Hawn) plastic surgery. Brenda asks Elise, "Did you just have a little bit or the whole enchilada?" This line was originally "I got the whole Ivana", but was changed once Ivana Trump was cast in a cameo. See more »
When Lisey, Bren and Annie are discussing Cynthia's death and the breakup of their marriages (before toasting the star of the First Wives Club), the letter in Annie's hand appears and disappears between shots. See more »
Shelly, what happened here? $140,00 for a PLATE? $47,000 for a carpet? A USED carpet? $300,00 for a Lamborghini? Are you crazy?
I bought the car for you! It was only 300 grand! It was a GIFT!
With my money you bought it! I bought me the gift!
Jesus, Morty, all I want is a lifestyle, y'know - with some ambiance and some classic eternal good taste!

I found this movie frustrating. I read Olivia Goldsmith's novel and found it deep, emotional, and justified in its revenge. The novel involves much deeper issues, like a father taking money from his retarded daughter, a man who beat his wife and forced her to allow their daughter to die following an accident, a man who refuses to support his children, et cetera.
This movie focuses on petty revenge because they are not happy with being discarded for twenty year olds. It has NONE of the book's depth, characters, or deep emotional satisfaction in revenge. It has nothing more than cheap satisfaction and cheap revenge. I watched it once and would never look at it again.
