On the eve of retirement a middle class, judgmental snob discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend and is forced into exile with her bohemian sister who lives on an impoverished inner-city council estate.
Four longtime friends and book club members--Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen--have their lives upended when they aim to spice up their mundane routines by reading the provocative bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. With newfound confidence, they each begin to come alive as exciting romances are ignited and old flames are rekindled. Through it all, the ladies inspire one other to make this next stage of their lives the best and steamiest thus far.
In the movie, Mary Steenburgen's character and Craig T. Nelson's character are in the car while he has an erection due to Viagra. She bends down in the seat to look closer, and he veers off the road and gets pulled over by a police officer. In Parenthood (1989), her character tries to do the same thing to a "fuller extent" to her husband in that movie, Steve Martin, and ends up wrecking the car and getting pulled over by a police officer as well. Craig T. Nelson played in the television version of Parenthood (2010). See more »

We're not eighteen anymore.
No. We're sure not spring flowers.
No. More like potpourri.

During the end credits the black and white snapshot of the four ladies as young girls is seen again. Then the four leading ladies recreate the photo, the shutter clicks and a black and white still frame of the four ageing ladies is seen. See more »
Fun, fun, fun movie - I'm going to see it again. So many laugh-out-loud moments. I would have loved to see more of Candice Bergen (a favorite!) and Richard Dreyfuss. Nevertheless I enjoyed the entire cast, movie and especially the music!
