Boynton Beach Club (2006)
Critic Consensus: While the movie has been praised for showcasing a cinematically underused and disrespected age group, it also has the small-screen feel of a silly sitcom.

Critic Reviews for Boynton Beach Club
Seidelman maintains the narrow path between ridicule and dignity in a movie that dishes out humour even-handedly, but spares the characters total humiliation.
Replaces one set of clichés with another, and does what all lame comedies do to young and old alike: It robs them of their humanity and makes them cute.
There's no character in the group who doesn't ooze good-natured charm.
Unsatisfying comedy-drama, which features a cheesy golden-oldies soundtrack that feels even more packaged than the dialogue.
More a series of anecdotes than an insightful dramedy and relies too much on absurd coincidences and needless sitcom-style lying.
Seidelman's movie doesn't dig deep, and the comedy too quickly veers into routine relationship territory -- albeit with wrinkles.
Audience Reviews for Boynton Beach Club
Pleasant diversion with an able cast who don't get a chance to be featured prominently any longer. Dyan while good in her role looks like hell.
FANTASTIC SHOW!!!! This is one of the best movies I've ever seen - right up there with Grouchy Old Men and Cocoon. I LOVED IT so much I've watched it at LEAST four times in the last few years....I have only one complaint on the movie.....where are the SEQUELS???? I want to know what is happening with the girls. It's been FOUR YEARS now and you still haven't finished the next sequel? Why NOT??? There are sooooo many things they could be doing - each of them - that I'd like to be a part of..... This movie made me want to go find the neighborhood they lived in and join the bereavement club .... and my husband is still alive .... just to meet all the ladies.... :^)
The movie is somewhat entertaining. The cast is decent and pretty good. But the movie at some parts was just overall boring. Some of the entertaining parts I guess made up for it. There was also a small nude scene that really didn't need to be there. I don't know if they did it to prove a point or what.
