New comedy Book Club focuses on a group of friends whose lives are spiced up by the addition of saucy novel Fifty Shades of Grey to their reading group. Iconic Oscar winners Jane Fonda (On Golden Pond) and Diane Keaton (Annie Hall, The Godfather trilogy) lead the cast, and Unlimited members have been sharing their own responses from last night's advance screening.
We'll start with this from Cameron Clark, who says the experience of watching the movie meshes nicely with the storyline.
It felt like I was a member of the book club. A good drama/romance with plenty of laughs! #CineworldUnlimited— Cameron Clark (@cameronclark_98) May 14, 2018
Katie Samuel says it delivers all the comedy and romance one could possibly expect.
Really enjoyed it. Funny and sentimental. Loved that the whole audience were laughing at points. Just a really nice film that I’d happily watch again. Thanks Cineworld!— Katie Samuel (@KatieSamuel) May 14, 2018
Emma Sewell praises the veteran cast that also includes Gandhi's Candice Bergen and Back to the Future III's Mary Steenburgen.
So entertaining. And with so many fabulous people in the cast. Full of laughs. Just a genuinely nice film that I would definitely watch again.— Emma Sewell (@VisionInBlue) May 14, 2018
On that note, Katie Butters says the movie also offers plum roles to some great actors who've been out of the spotlight.
Enjoyed #bookclub tonight was fun seeing actors haven’t seen in awhile: Alicia Silverstone, Craig T Nelson, Richard Dreyfus— Katie Butters (@KatieJButters) May 14, 2018
On the flipside, Jon Steele-Mills says the best gags are, unfortunately, all in the trailer.
Unfortunately this was one of those films that had all the best parts in the trailer. Great cast criminally under performed. Not the best!— Jon Steele-Mills (@thepump74) May 14, 2018
And Jamie Paul White agrees.
Book Club goes on general release on 1st June.
