Book Club – Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage. Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached. Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through a decades-old divorce. Carol’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. Four lifelong friends’ lives are turned upside down to hilarious ends when their book club tackles the infamous Fifty Shades of Grey. From discovering new romance to rekindling old flames, they inspire each other to make their next chapter the best chapter.
Q tips say: The Mr. & I laughed a lot at this mindless/goofy movie. See it when you are enjoying a cocktail and need a mindless thing to watch or there is nothing else good on TV or too tired to even read a book. Mrs. Q says: Thought there were a few scenes that needed to be deleted because they were incredibly stupid and unreal! Personally, I felt these actors were way too old to play these parts. Their voices were wobbly, Fonda couldn’t hardly walk in her heels, and most of them couldn’t walk on grass without assistance. I thought it was great to see however, the premise of older women (some had way too many face lifts/plastic surgery) still having a life after a certain age, but they were trying too hard to be 20 again. I don’t even want to think about the sexual aspect of these old people on screen.
