Alternate Versions

The DVD version differs from both the original TV version and subsequent VHS release: -The film opens without the credits sequence from the VHS version, though the extended version of the opening scene in Gavin's office is intact. -After Piper's line, "I had to beg him to look away...," she continues, "and get a vasectomy." -A moment where Kate leads Wesley in a relaxation breathing exercise immediately before revealing she's going to be late to work the next morning has been removed. -While lying in bed, Addie asks, "You were never anybody's... girl, were you, Tony?" -There's additional dialogue between Miriam, Piper and Kate in the bedroom about Tony's oversized penis. -The brief prison scene with Carrie Fisher is included. -The club sequence is entirely re-edited, with "Get Happy" interspersed throughout Kate and Wesley's conversation. Most of the footage of Shirley MacLaine and Jonathan Silverman is edited from alternate takes, and some of the dialogue that was included on the VHS version is missing. See more »

For those who know these actresses inside and out
9 May 2007 | by karalyevaSee all my reviews

This film is filled to the brim with fantastic Hollywood injokes and highly entertaining dialogue for those people who are familiar with the historical private lives of these individual actresses. For those people who don't know the lives of "these old broads," don't bother watching it, you won't get it. I'm sure that's the situation with most of the people who gave this film negative reviews. I understand how this movie could be frightfully boring and meaningless to those people who aren't versed in classic Hollywood lore, as nearly all of the situations and lines are witty remarks about the actress playing the role, but for those of us who get the joke, it is a brilliant, hysterically funny piece of work.
