The First Wives Club is a 1996 movie that follows three friends, played by Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton, who reunite after their college friend commits suicide because of her husband leaving her for a younger woman. The three women then realize that they have all been left by their husbands for younger women as well, so they form a club to support each other and help them get the revenge they deserve. The club is called The First Wives Club, and their motto is "Don't get mad. Get everything."

The movie takes place in New York City and is a comedy with a heart. The three leads have incredible chemistry together and are all hilarious in their own ways.

The movie has a great supporting cast as well, including Sarah Jessica Parker as the younger woman who steals Diane Keaton's husband, and Maggie Smith as a wealthy socialite who helps the women get their revenge. There are also appearances by Dan Hedaya, Victor Garber, and Stockard Channing.

The soundtrack is also a standout of the movie, with iconic songs like "You Don't Own Me" and "I'm Still Here" being featured prominently.
