THE NEXT CHAPTER IS ALWAYS THE BEST.
Four friends (Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen) have had a book club for the past 30 years, but the latest literary choice, ”Fifty Shades of Grey”, turns their lives upside down. A romantic comedy for mature audiences in the vein of Nancy Meyers, complete with fabulous performances by four stars. They are ably supported by a bunch of attractive guys; star power is exactly what this film needs, considering how few genuine laughs there are and the predictability of the script. Still, a pleasant enough diversion. Friendly question: Are all these women drunks, or why the copious amounts of alcohol?
