Light, but fun

It's enough of an accomplishment to see a movie about late-middle age women in our culture of youth, youth, and more youth. "The Cemetery Club" isn't going to be the most memorable movie you ever see, but it's a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Diane Ladd, one of the more underused and underrated actresses in the business, in particular turns in a nice performance.

Watchable, enjoyable fluff for grown ups

By grown ups, I don't mean that it's rude. More mature. I had heard that this was a good film, and I had been searching for it for some time, so was delighted to fall over it in a bargain bin locally, and bought it when I probably shouldn't have. However, it did while away a surprisingly long couple of hours, and was a pleasant bit of fluff.

I have a lot of time for Olympia Dukakis and Ellen Burnstein, so I was a bit disappointed that the one was so miserable and the other was a bit dim - OK so she's been married for ever, but she surely didn't live under a stone with her husband? I would have thought that the way she was smuggled into the hotel room made her look more like a prostitute than anything, and I felt sorry for her having to make her way out alone in the morning. Having said that, I was delighted that she reconciled with her new man before the end.

One absolute joy was Selma (Zelma?) who was the perpetual bride, tacky and brash as all get out, but completely lovable.

A nice movie.

fun Jewish stories.... Olympia D is awesome

Well, the description on this thing sure didn't sell me, but OLYMPIA DUKAKIS ! I've never NOT liked a movie with OLYMPIA D! (gotta see her in Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias, and of course, Tales of the City). This one also has Danny Aiello, also from Moonstruck. Cemetery opens with a senior citizen couple getting married, and the crowd is telling old jokes. You can tell they are all good longtime friends, Happy Times. Speaking of Moonstruck, the cute little old couple that ran the Italian deli is in here too, as well as the "inconceivable" guy. But suddenly, people are croaking! that took a quick turn for the dark side. Lots of old Jewish jokes. some funny stuff. swearing, laughs, arguments. Ellen Burstyn seems to get top billing, but is pretty low key in this. Anyone familiar with Jewish traditions, passive aggressive behavior, or just spending time in manhattan will appreciate the humor here. some funny stuff! Love Olympia - she totally saves this, with her dry sarcastic wit. Never heard anything about this back in 1993, but it IS on DVD. Directed by Bill Duke, who directed a TON of TV in the 1980s, then started directing films in the 1990s.

Written by Ivan Menchell, as a play. Not much info available on him. Has done a lot of TV. Quite Good. I've never seen this on TV, so you'll probably have to find it on DVD, but it IS pretty good. I'll have to see it again, since i'm sure i've missed many references watching it the first time.
