loved it

This is a "baby boomer" flick, I totally enjoyed it and thought that the story line was excellent and all the actors were fabulous. The younger generation would not understand the meaning or the humor. This is an all star cast of baby boomer's or older and I think they should be commended for their stellar acting. Ellen Burstyn is beautiful and gave a wonderful performance as usual. Diane Ladd is funny and beautiful. Olympia Dukakis is perfect for the part she played. Lainie Kazan is so funny with all her marriages living her life to the fullest. Everyone should have a group of friends that love and support each other through all of life's ups and downs.

fun Jewish stories.... Olympia D is awesome

Well, the description on this thing sure didn't sell me, but OLYMPIA DUKAKIS ! I've never NOT liked a movie with OLYMPIA D! (gotta see her in Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias, and of course, Tales of the City). This one also has Danny Aiello, also from Moonstruck. Cemetery opens with a senior citizen couple getting married, and the crowd is telling old jokes. You can tell they are all good longtime friends, Happy Times. Speaking of Moonstruck, the cute little old couple that ran the Italian deli is in here too, as well as the "inconceivable" guy. But suddenly, people are croaking! that took a quick turn for the dark side. Lots of old Jewish jokes. some funny stuff. swearing, laughs, arguments. Ellen Burstyn seems to get top billing, but is pretty low key in this. Anyone familiar with Jewish traditions, passive aggressive behavior, or just spending time in manhattan will appreciate the humor here. some funny stuff! Love Olympia - she totally saves this, with her dry sarcastic wit. Never heard anything about this back in 1993, but it IS on DVD. Directed by Bill Duke, who directed a TON of TV in the 1980s, then started directing films in the 1990s.

Written by Ivan Menchell, as a play. Not much info available on him. Has done a lot of TV. Quite Good. I've never seen this on TV, so you'll probably have to find it on DVD, but it IS pretty good. I'll have to see it again, since i'm sure i've missed many references watching it the first time.

Light, but fun

It's enough of an accomplishment to see a movie about late-middle age women in our culture of youth, youth, and more youth. "The Cemetery Club" isn't going to be the most memorable movie you ever see, but it's a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Diane Ladd, one of the more underused and underrated actresses in the business, in particular turns in a nice performance.
