Book Club only intermittently rises to the level of its impressive veteran cast; fortunately, they're more than enough to bring pedestrian material entertainingly to life.

There's a great sense of camaraderie in it all but it could have been so much better with a script that rejected the obvious.
It's a film to remind you that the comedy confectionery of Nora Ephron or perhaps Nancy Meyers is not that easy to replicate, and you can be left with all of the guilt and none of the pleasure.
Book Club is an airy dinner conversation set before a spectacular, disposable backdrop, a sure-fire bet to be the breeziest two hours you spend in the theater this summer.
Even though it follows the map of every romcom before it, Holderman's film still offers the too-rare chance to marvel at just how good these women are at their craft, how easily they inhabit the bodies and lives of other people.
In an industry that defines "mature audiences" as anyone old enough to vote, a movie centered entirely on women over 65 - a sex comedy, no less - feels like some kind of small Hollywood miracle.
You can like Book Club or hate it, but you can't argue with the fact that Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen have real marquee value.
More book club movies please!
The gags are definitely broad rather than rapier-sharp but the cast make the most of them, and it's good to see older women taking the limelight for a change.
Despite a phenomenal cast, the film collapses into rom-com cliché, struggling to come up with anything to say that merits the tremendous talent recruited to say it.
Book Club is delightful.
If you want to see a funny female cast of older successful women navigate sex, love, and life, I would recommend you treat yourself and go to this film.
This rom-com is not the cinematic equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize winning novel but is more of a breezy beach read, which makes it the perfect summertime diversion.
Arizona is pretty.
Could have been better. 4 books mentioned at the book group and three of them are the 50 shades of Grey trilogy. Borderline insulting, actually and such a cliche. The actresses are all good, but the storyline does them no favours.
While the material was thin at times, the veteran actresses make you care because how talented they are. THe story is slow but it's realistic and not too sugary sweet. Keaton, Fonda and Steenburgen have some fine moments but Bergen was the strongest in my mind and the men who supported them in Garcia, Johnson, Nelson and Dreyfus were just as strong. A nice rental but nothing much more! 08-15-2018
Hey Diane Keaton 1976 called and wants its Annie Hall routine back. This mediocre movie's message in these days of female power enlightenment is that they must have a man to lead a fulfilling life. Maybe their choice should have been Moby Dick. (5-26-18)
