Book club review
busy in a cars back seat with Dreyfuss, and Steenburgen and Nelson. Director: Bill Holderman, screenwriters: Bill Holderman, Erin Simms, producers: Andrew Duncan, Alex Saks, Bill Holderman, Erin Simms. Its not so much the reductive message that the path to happiness must be walked alongside a man; more that the writing is wincingly awful. With its constant flow of wine and array of Nancy Meyers-style luxe comfort, it casts suburban Los Angeles in a bland travelogue sheen. Their inaugural meeting in the 70s was around Erica Jongs. I shuddered a bit. In other words, abandon your disbelief at the multiplex door. Vivian might want something more than no-strings hookups. The upper-class milieu of these primarily Santa Monica residents is almost as blindingly vanilla and cushy as those found in one of Nancy Meyers perfectly curated confections. Besides, you wouldnt want to recast these parts with anyone else. Jamess notoriously silly bdsm saga as shorthand for a kind of romantic adventurousness, but the four leads all quickly pick up the beat and explore that idea on their own, outside the limited realm of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
There is an element of fantasy in this, of course, and also a great deal of reality left out of the picture. Just as she and Lily Tomlin elevate their Netflix series, Grace and Frankie, with their killer comic timing, the fun she's clearly having as Vivian is infectious. The same ultimately goes for the entire film). Steenburgen is the only one who qualifies. Other than a quick glimpse of Beverly Hills' shopping district, there's no there there. Oh, we would certainly all go see it, but not without acknowledging that we were living with an industry in which nothing gets green-lit unless it is a wink or nod at a one-time trending topic. Carols doing everything she can to keep things interesting, and in any other movie hed eventually succumb and decide that ballroom dancing is his key to rediscovering his passion. Speaking of which, much vino is consumed as the central quartet hold their meetings.
Johnson and Garcia provide the requisite silver-fox twinkle, but their characters are paper-thin dreamboats with no true sense of personal history. Executive producers: Ted Deiker, Alan Blomquist. When I learned that Book Club, Hollywoods latest bid to please the senior-discount demo with a glittering array of big-screen notables of a certain age, was partly inspired by the. Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen star as friends who undergo romantic awakenings after reading 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'. An early nod to Erica Jong's. The script leans so heavily on innuendo that you almost forgive the smirking, coffee-shop-jazz score because it at least drowns out some of the tittering.
