It was so huge, a very groundbreaking movie back in the 90′s. First Wives Club, I think, changed the way society saw women back then. Not to mention the famous song in that movie… the scene with them dancing to it is fantastic (shown above), and every time I hear that song, I am fondly reminded of the movie. Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, and Goldie Hawn are such amazing actresses, perfect for their roles in this masterpiece. I gotta say though, I was slightly bummed when I realized that Stockard Channing wouldn’t have as big a role as the rest of them. Not wanting to ruin anything for those of you who haven’t seen the movie, I won’t say more than that about her role. I’ve loved Channing ever since Is saw her in ‘Grease’ back when I was a kid. Such a cool actress! Her and the three other incredible talents in this movie have given the new actresses some very huge shoes to fill.
From the research I have done on this subject, I found out that one of the actresses that will be taking on a role in this new remake is Alyson Hannigan. Makes me super happy! Having seen her as one of the main characters in both Buffy and How I Met Your Mother, I am fully certain that she will fill these shoes with flying colors, as they say. Hannigan is great. Her two co-stars will be Megan Hilty and Vanessa Lachey. Sadly, I’m not too familiar with either of them, but I am confident that they will also be brilliant. The latest is that the remake has been greenlit for a pilot, so here’s hoping everyone falls in love with it as much as they did with the classic movie.
