After years of helping their hubbies climb the ladder of success, three wives have been dumped for newer, curvier models. But the trio is determined to turn their pain into gain. They come up with a cleverly devious plan to hit their exes where it really hurts - in the wallet! Sit back and watch the sparks fly as The Wives get mad, get even and get it all. Justice has seldom been so sweet. Or so much fun.Written by
The fact that Diane Keaton's character's name is "Annie" is a funny coincidence in four ways. 1. Her nickname is Annie. 2. One her most famous roles (as well as Oscar winning role) was playing Annie Hall in Annie Hall. 3. In Father of the Bride, her character's daughter's name is Annie (played by Kimberly Williams-Paisley) and 4. Stephen Collins (who plays her ex husband in this film) would go on to play Rev. Eric Camden in the family drama 7th Heaven where his wife's name in Annie (played by Catherine Hicks). See more »
When Aaron calls Annie to go to dinner, Annie says hello before picking up the phone instead of waiting until she had the phone to her ear. See more »
I found this movie frustrating. I read Olivia Goldsmith's novel and found it deep, emotional, and justified in its revenge. The novel involves much deeper issues, like a father taking money from his retarded daughter, a man who beat his wife and forced her to allow their daughter to die following an accident, a man who refuses to support his children, et cetera.
This movie focuses on petty revenge because they are not happy with being discarded for twenty year olds. It has NONE of the book's depth, characters, or deep emotional satisfaction in revenge. It has nothing more than cheap satisfaction and cheap revenge. I watched it once and would never look at it again.
