Romantic comedy
It’s wonderful to see 60-plus-year-old actors like Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen in a movie that showcases them; it’s depressing that the only way to get such a showcase is in a story that finds it hilarious to turn them into sexual beings. If you ever wondered what it would look like for Nancy Meyers to direct a Sex and the City movie, it would look a lot like this profile of four upper-class friends—widowed Diane (Keaton), single Vivian (Fonda), divorced Sharon (Bergen) and married Carol (Steenburgen)—who get inspired to make some relationship changes by reading the Fifty Shades trilogy for their long-standing book club. Along the way they drink a swimming pool full of wine—it is literally possible that not a single scene in this movie lacks alcohol—spew out a non-stop stream of double-entendres and wait to be caught in embarrassing situations by someone. Occasionally one of the punch lines in the script by Bill Holderman and Erin Simms lands, and there are glimpses of honesty these veteran actors can mine from anxiety about finding intimacy as a senior woman. Mostly, it’s episodic nonsense with the overriding message of “lol, horny olds.”
