“First Wives Club” Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton Re-Team in “Family Jewels”!

First Wives Club

Great News! The fabulous team of Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Diane Keaton – the female actor equivalent of the Avengers – is getting back together for a new “multigeneration comedy” called “Family Jewels”. Their classic first appearance in “First Wives Club” is so completely rewatchable that it’s curious why there was never a sequel nor another teaming. I guess the thinking has been that female-led movies don’t make money and if they do, it’s a fluke. That continues to be disproven yet Hollywood is slow on the uptake.

The story is a bit of a reverse “Mamma Mia”. They play three women forced to spend the Christmas holidays together, along with their kids and grandkids, after the man they were all once married to drops dead in a New York City department store.

Filming will start later this year, so this will probably be a Christmas 2021 release. In the meanwhile, here’s a dance down memory lane:

Having found the perfect meta name for a band, Matt Johnson released “Soul Mining” in 1983 under the band name The The. Although Matt was subject to a bidding war and got a huge advance from the winning label, the record sounds like it was recorded in a bedroom; still, the homemade vibe enhances its authenticity, with intensely private thoughts and emotions set to a cheap drum machine. There was enough polish, however, to make it sound sensational, especially when

Album Challenge Day 8: Take That’s “Beautiful World”

This is the greatest pop band that America’s never heard of. And what a story! Picture It: 1990. A British gay club in the middle of nowhere hosting a boyband of five straight lads, absolutely adorable even though their lead singer, Gary Barlow, thinks he’s fat and a bad dancer. Their manager, Nigel Martin-Smith, feels their path to stardom for his manufactured group is through the gays; he’s right because Take That eventually becomes a British phenomenon, unique in singing
