A movie about Candice Bergen hunting for dick on Bumble™ = Great idea. A movie about Diane Keaton avoiding condescending asshole daughters & hanging with Rich AF Andy Garcia (who is cooler than her dead hubby ever was, BTW) = Good idea. A movie about Mary Steenburgen dosing her man with hard-on pills = OK idea. A movie about Jane Fonda falling in love with Texas Guy cuz he gives her an arm massage = Shit idea.
For a broad commercial studio comedy, I actually had a good time with this one. All the gals are having a blast and it’s fun watching 4 legends of cinema together for the first time. Some storylines are better than others and the Fifty Shades of Black stuff is kept to a minimum - which I was happy to see. It’s a great little movie to see with your parents or grandparents. Not much to think about but a fun time.
Holderman had 4 wonderful leading women who did the most with what was generally uninspired material. There is something honest and interesting to be said about marriage, love, sex and dating in the 21st century that features women who are over 65 years old but this isn't that film.
I watched this with my wife. According to her this is a women's film & she enjoyed it. However, this doesn't apply for me. Because this is a harmless, inoffensive, tame, very thinly written movie. And yes, at times charmingly sweet due to the iconic Hollywood actresses. That admittedly has some value, but apart from that a flop.
