“Book Club” is entertaining and funny. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It’s definitely an “Adult” movie. There is no profanity, but there are adult situations. The movie could be viewed as a “Chick Flick, but I think it can be enjoyed by all. There are parts of the movie that are truly relatable to real life situations.
Jane Fonda really looks great for her age!!
Check out “Book Club” for some “Light-Hearted” fun!!
