What happens when you take four of the funniest, most talented actresses from the 20th century and put them in a movie together? Probably something different than what happens when you do it in the 21st century. Diane Keaton, Candace Bergen, Jane Fonda, and Mary Steenburgen are old friends who meet up regularly to drink wine, talk about books, drink wine, talk about their lives, drink wine, and snack. And drink wine. Then, they are confronted with the book (assuming you want to call it that) Fifty Shades of Grey, and they all start confronting issues in their sex lives (or lack thereof) accompanied by coincidentally timed meet-cutes with Don Johnson, Andy Garcia, Richard Dreyfuss, and more. And let’s face it: this is for your parents. Perhaps, grandparents, as long as they’re partial to two hours of non-stop sexual innuendo. But hey, I’m writing this and I’m (Chris) the guy who didn’t like it. Coming in with the dissenting opinion on the review with me is George and Mike “100 Subs” Riojas. Check it out here.
