After years of helping their hubbies climb the ladder of success, three wives have been dumped for newer, curvier models. But the trio is determined to turn their pain into gain. They come up with a cleverly devious plan to hit their exes where it really hurts, in the wallet. Sit back and watch the sparks fly as The Wives get mad, get even, and get it all. Justice has seldom been so sweet. Or so much fun.

In the opening sequence at College, the girls all line up for a photo. Cynthia is the tallest by a large degree. When seen grown up, due to their actor counterparts, Cynthia would have been the shortest by far, as Stockard Channing is shorter than Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton at 5"2. See more »
Annie, you choose. Who's your friend? Me or Brenda?
Yeah, for once in your life make a decision? Who's your friend? Some Beverly Hills science project?
Or a woman with her own aisle at the supermarket?

I found this movie frustrating. I read Olivia Goldsmith's novel and found it deep, emotional, and justified in its revenge. The novel involves much deeper issues, like a father taking money from his retarded daughter, a man who beat his wife and forced her to allow their daughter to die following an accident, a man who refuses to support his children, et cetera.
This movie focuses on petty revenge because they are not happy with being discarded for twenty year olds. It has NONE of the book's depth, characters, or deep emotional satisfaction in revenge. It has nothing more than cheap satisfaction and cheap revenge. I watched it once and would never look at it again.
