Editorial Reviews

Hollywood Wives was Farrah Fawcett's last TV movie role. A big Hollywood star (Farrah Fawcett), fed up with her husband's antics and cheatings, hires a private investigator to tail him. She is offered emotional support from her two best high profile friends - soul singer (Robin Givens) and very famous Hollywood directors wife (Melissa Gilbert) who help her plan the sting. This was Farrah's last TV movie before her passing.

I miss Farrah.

I don't always read the book that a movie is based on, but in this case I wish I had.

Even though they are pretty to look at, the actors just can't act.

Hollywood Wives: The New Generation is a sleazy story about self-centered women. It reminds you of a drug store novel. However, Farrah gives her last performance in a leading role and proves she is still sexy at 56. Also, Farrah was a damn good actress. It is wonderful that she had a good leading role before she got sick and ultimately left us. The draw backs are the younger actors. Even though they are pretty to look at, the actors just can't act. Melissa Gilbert does a good role and so does Robin Givens with Jack Scalia. Robin Givens proves she can act but her role is small compared to Farrah's and Melissa's. However, then again, I guess they are bigger stars. If you are a Farrah fan, this is a must for your collection. Farrah proves she is a sex symbol in her late fifties and women can be just as sexy as men, late in life. She will become a legend like Marilyn Monroe. In summary, the movie involves wife beating, adultery, selfishness, and kidnapping. However, this is Farrah's last starring role and a good one to remember her as being the sex symbol and actress that she was.

THIS IS A NICE MOVIE TO REMEMBER FARRAH BY. SHE WAS THE LEAD CHARACTER, AND I ENJOYED THE MOVIE THOROUGHLY. I THINK OTHER FANS WILL TOO. WORTH BUYING AND WATCHING FARRAH, AND SHE LOOKS GORGEOUS.

I was only able to watch this movie once and I thought that it was a terrific treat to watch three solid actresses Robin Givens, Farrah Fawcett (and this down to earth lady did not deserve to die so soon in life, I blame that Jack-ass twerp of a man "oddly know as Ryan") and Melissa Gilbert.

It was enjoyable as far as watching the entire ensemble cast. Well worth the purchase for your movie collection. I loved how the women interacted as friends and it was a refreshing change to watch down to earth women play the roles of (in a way, themselves) but in a way that was something that --as an audience--you'd want to be part of. Imagine having a midnight massage with your best girl friend--non-sexual, but just fun and unusual. I am adding this to my wish list. This is good for those in their 40 something years, a guilty pleasure, but a welcome pleasure, particuarly being that this is Farrah's last role. This is much better than the former Hollywood WIves.

The first Hollywood Wives novel is very good, but the TV version was weak. The new generation was surprisingly much better. To understand the enjoyment, you have to have been born between 1965-1970 to really appreciate these actresses working together in a Jackie Collins based novel.

There were some surprising scenes in which I thought that things were not going to end well for the scene of the stalking....it was pretty disturbing and Collins does base these incidents from people that she personally knows in Hollywood which is what makes certain themes in this one , realistic, just because of who would even think up these events if one were not inspired by what the author knew.

So, with the others, I agree that this is well worth your time, if you like these actresses and their past work.

I don't remember exactly how I found out about this movie. I may have just been looking for something new to buy. And it is the last movie that ACTRESS FARRAH FAWCETT appeared in. I don't always read the book that a movie is based on, but in this case I wish I had. This movie, to me, seem choppy and to short. I like JACKIE COLLINS, though I haven't read every book she has written. I'm used to her books being made into much longer movies, at least three hours. If you enjoy movies about characters who are driven by fame, fortune and lust then this movie may just feed your soul, however it may not be very satisfying. The cost wasn't to bad for eighty-nine minutes. If it hadn't been for FARRAH FAWCETT, I may have only given this movie two stars. For a filler, this movie will do. If you don't care what is in your DVD PLAYER, this movie will do. Whoever put this movie together should be embarrassed. The bottom line is, it is somewhat watchable. Even I can bear it once in awhile. This is one of those: "THIS MOVIE WAS SO BAD, IT WAS GOOD" type movies.
