Annie (Diane Keaton) is seeing a marital therapist (Marcia Gay Harden) to deal with her separation from her manipulative husband Aaron, while raising a lesbian daughter and caring for her controlling elderly mother. Brenda (Bette Midler) is divorced from Morty, her cheap corporate husband who spends the money he's supposed to pay Brenda in child support on his materialistic egotistical girlfriend, Shelly (Sarah Jessica Parker), instead. Elise (Goldie Hawn) is an aging actress whose producer ex, Bill (Victor Garber), is taking her to the cleaners in their divorce settlement. All three are reunited when Cynthia, a divorcee of self-made riches and a mutual college friend of theirs, throws herself from her penthouse balcony a day after Cynthia's ex-husband remarries. In a way the comedy is bittersweet, considering the dark event that instigates it all. For me, it'll always be one of the delightful comedies of my youth. Such nostalgia. I personally love it, and so, I must recommend it.
