Gabi Zietsman quote iconBook Club can really be watched by anyone, although it may lean a bit more towards a feminine audience, many of the male critics laughed just as hard as me in the cinema.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconYes, I realize the film is about the ladies and is for their gender in the audience, but that shouldn’t stymie depth and dimension for all who appear on the screen. Perhaps if the film is enough of a hit, those who ultimately make Book Club 2: Twilight will step up their game and take better advantage of having a talented cast at their disposal.

Tomatometer quote iconBook Club only intermittently rises to the level of its impressive veteran cast; fortunately, they’re more than enough to bring pedestrian material entertainingly to life.
