Audience Reviews for The Cemetery Club

Understandably, anyone with a Y chromosome is going to stay away from this, a romantic comedy about older women. But boy oh boy is it a delightful surprise. Saw this in gerontology and found myself laughing quite a bit. And like all good comedies, there's an undercurrent of reality and sadness. Solid performances from the entire cast.

Wonderful performances, especially from Ellen Burstyn and Olympia Dukakis, but everyone is great. Very well written, touching and entertaining, good direction. It is such a pleasure to see this group of actors in a film.
