Dir: Hugh Wilson, PG, United States, 1996, 103mins, DCP,

Despondent over the marriage of her ex-husband to a younger woman, a middle-aged divorcee plunges to her death from her penthouse apartment. At her funeral, 3 former college friends (Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton) reunite for the first time in nearly 30 years.

When they discover the reason for their friend's suicide, they realise that their ex-husbands have taken them all for granted. Deciding it's time for revenge, they make a pact to band together and get back at their exes.

Funny and moving, this age- and woman-positive film benefits from the 3 powerhouse stars, who are supported by a huge cast of fantastic supporting characters. And, of course, there’s a great dance scene.

This Galentine’s Day, get your gals and pals together to celebrate the fabulous friendships in your life!

Includes a glass of bubbles on arrival.
