Diane: Oh.
Sharon: I need a drink.
Carol: Your 'husband'?
Diane: You can't possibly still care about what Tom is doing.
Sharon: I don't care. But the guy gets seasick in a swimming pool. I mean, what the hell is he doing in Maui?
Vivian: Sounds like he's doing Cheryl in Maui.
Sharon: Oh, please. Who gets involved in a relationship at 67? I mean, what is the point?

Delightful afternoon
19 May 2018 | by pamma09See all my reviews

I along with many others went to the first show - only 12 empty seats - it was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Four great actresses paired with 4 great actors made for a good movie. Many scenes about the reality of life in what some would call the senior years. The book club of the four good friends met every month and things changes with the Fifty Shades books. And the adventures of all four were so much fun to watch - great writing with good comebacks for all the characters. It is a real movie, the four women look back at their lives and try to figure out the ways to make things more interesting. Just as their families have changed - they decide to change their own too. I would give this a 7.5 star rating - it is fun.
