More Details

Synopsis:
Three former college chums -- vain Elise, brassy Brenda and wimpy Annie -- reunite after the death of a friend. Soon, the ladies discover that they've all been recently dumped by their smarmy husbands for younger, nubile women. The neurotic trio decide to band together and seek vengeance, using such bureaucratic methods as the IRS and the legal system. But their dogged efforts lead the femmes to break laws themselves. Lots of them. So will revenge be sweet for these first wives? Or will they land in the slammer instead?

Notes:
Released theatrically in the USA September 20, 1996. Color by DuArt. Additional cast: Ari Greenberg (Jason Cushman). Copyright 1996 Paramount Pictures.
