A funny, romantic comedy for grown folks. It’s the kind of movie Hollywood should make more often, but only cranks out occasionally. It’s also one that borrows a page or two from rom-com master Nancy Meyers (“The Intern,” “The Holiday” and “Something’s Gotta Give”).
In “Book Club,” Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen star as well-heeled, wine loving, mid-60ish friends who have known each other since college.The vivacious Vivian (a fabulous 80-year-old Fonda, TV’s “Grace and Frankie”) owns a ritzy hotel and has a slew of handsome men who will do anything for her.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Ryan Reynolds/Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste.
Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of “World's Best Lover.”
