With four beloved, if not iconic, actresses from the 70s & 80s starring as lifelong friends, with differing marital statuses that cover the spectrum, who meet to drink and talk sex under the guise of their Book Club, this film has the potential to be a Nora Ephron-esque romcom, crossing Sex and the City with Golden Girls, so it’s a shame it turns out so formulaic and stale, and mostly coasting on the charms of its leading ladies. 222 more words
