4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of life left September 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie Review January 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I received prompt service and movie is top condition.
This is an excellent movie. I had seen it a few years ago. But, I have never seen it in any stores so that I could purchase my own copy.
I was delighted to find it on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tears, Laughs, and Friendship January 12, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am giving this movie 5 stars because it is well acted and has a story line that most people over 55 could relate to. I would say it is more a woman's film but Danny Aiello who plays the part of a retired cop who lost his wife is a good representative for the male viewer to also enjoy the this film. I have watched this movie countless times over the past few years. I recommend this movie to anyone who I feel would like to spend a few hours with people who are learning to cope with the unexpected change to their life. There are tears, laughs but through it all friendships that help them move forward and look forward to the new journey. You may also appreciate some of the background music that is in a few scenes. Is this movie somewhat old fashioned yes but in a rather contemporary way and that for me makes it a movie I would and do recommend to my neighbors who are over 55.
