This saucy romantic comedy stars Hollywood veterans Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen as lifelong friends.

The quartet add some spice and sizzle to their lives after they choose Fifty Shades of Grey as their book club’s next title. What impact will the page-turning exploits of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey have on their love lives?

The gags are definitely broad rather than sharp, but the cast makes the most of them – and it’s good to see mature women taking the limelight for a change. It is the men here who take second billing, with Andy Garcia, Richard Dreyfuss and Don Johnson featuring among the women’s suitors.

Casting Johnson, real-life father of Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson, as Fonda’s newly rekindled old flame is a very nice touch and the talented actors all cast along on their immense charm.
