The First Wive's Club - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Marriage has turned into a crash dive for Brenda Morelli Cushman, Elise Elliot Atchison and Annie MacDuggan Paradise. These three well-heeled Manhattan women were chums during their college days, but they all took different paths. Brenda married an electronics-emporium magnate, Elise became a film star, Annie an Upper East Side housewife. They all helped their husbands build up hugely successful businesses. Now they're reunited by catastrophe: each has just been callously dumped by her husband for a younger, sexier "trophy wife." There are sharks swimming around Manhattan, and most of them are pumped with silicone and squeezed into Spandex. Smarting from the pain, Brenda, Elise and Annie join forces and concoct a plan to exact the most exquisitely bitter vengeance upon their "exes." War has been declared, and it will claim some of Manhattan's poshest boardrooms and bedrooms as its battlefields. THE FIRST WIVES CLUB is now in session. These are three ladies you do not want to mess with.

MOVIE REVIEW

The First Wives Club, starring Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler, was supposed to be a funny, vivacious comedy. Instead, it was almost an incessant bore with a bunch of giddy, frantic women. But, judging from my mother's reaction, women will like it more than men, especially married women.
