Belinda S. (niara) from NEW YORK, NY
Reviewed on 7/22/2012...
I came across this movie in the $1 vhs bin and took a chance because of the cast. I must admit I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this film. Ellen Burstyn and Diane Lane are reunited in their first film together since the ground-breaking "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore". The cast also features the incomparable Olympia Dukakis -- who is hilarious, as always -- and another fine character actor, Danny Aiello.

Drama-filled, poignant, warm and laugh-out-loud funny, it had some truly endearing moments. I think it was marketed more as a kind of "laugh-filed comedy" but it really wasn't. There were some spectacular moments of real, heart-felt drama and I guess that's what appealed to me -- comedy often teeters on the borders of drama, and this film, I thought, went to some places I was surprised they chose to go. But those choices made for a much better film. The film also featured a scene-stealing Lanie Kazan and a young Christina Ricci. Take the time to check this one out. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Plenty of life left
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The acting and the basic theme of the film -- how people handle further attachments after losing a spouse -- are good. There are a number of funny lines and poignant moments. The main romance is handled well and realistically on an emotional level. The final scene in the music store was unfortunately marred by Ben's phoney stuttering when he tries to get out the word marriage. The idea is fine, but the execution seemed really hokey. All in all, an enjoyable film that had a lot of nice touches, particularly the bedroom/hotel night scene."

"The Cemetery Club has been one of my favorite movies for years. Before purchasing the movie through Amazon, I had been searching all video stores for the movie. I wished I had thought of Amazon before searching for the movie elsewhere because it was so easy to find on Amazon and just as easy to puchase, as well.

The Cemetery Club is a movie for all ages. It is especially fun to watch with family members. The cast is fantastic; Danny Aiello, Olympia Dukakis, Ellyn Bursten and Diane Ladd and Christina Ricci has a small part in the film as a young girl.

I highly recommend this movie."
