Pretty bad acting in some parts but still a fun movie to watch.

A fun movie all around, excellent performances from everyone - not just the three ladies themselves, but the ex-husbands, the new love interests, and Maggie Smith as Gunilla Garson Goldberg, who makes one of a particularly fun additional trio in the film: Smith and Pinchot rooking Parker for everything Hedaya is worth.

It's equally nice to see a bit of seriousness in the movie as well, of women struggling - and eventually succeeding - to redefine themselves with the loss of their youth and their husbands and the futures they had always assumed were secure, as well as managing to turn their experiences into a positive to help other women. It also, despite being a story about getting revenge on ex-husbands, passes the Bechdel test many times over.

It's silly really, but funny nevertheless.

This was a fairly standard rom-com. Relatable characters, cliched jokes, and plenty of predictable feel-good moments to balance the tearjerker moments. If you're looking for a story about female empowerment that isn't too deep and brings a decent amount of laughs, you'll probably found this to be a decent distraction, especially for fans of mid-life crisis rom-coms.

The three leads are hilarious, especially Midler, but the movie wasn't that great.

I'm surprised at how many are not interested in seeing this, lol.. I was at a club the other night and I swear to god this woman was the exact replica of Goldie Hawn in this movie.. "I mean, hey man, rock and roll! Yeah.. ::downs alcohol::".. Heh, it was great.. everyone should see this movie, it's hilarious in every aspect.

Always a classic. Who doesn't love a movie about female empowerment?! Laugh out loud fun with three fantastic actresses!

Fun, entertaining, and so needed. The First Wives Club helps women get payback for their suffering with humor and great performances. The chemistry between Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Diane Keaton looks so natural as if they've been friends for ages. The First Wives Club is funny, meaningful, heartwarming, well-acted, well-written, and very empowering thanks to its great cast and witty humor.

It's a good and funny movie it tells you just the way it is and betrays life the way it is.

I DON'T understand how this movie has such a low score critically. I LOVE this movie. It's fun and everyone in it is fantastic.

A little over the top and convoluted at times, The First Wives Club still manages to be a very funny and endearing movie with an excellent performance from all three leads.
