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.

I saw this movie years ago and loved it and was thrilled to be able to get it and enjoy it whenever I want to. Sad, thoughtful, realistic...we will all face these changes in our lives. It's how we live after them that matters.

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.

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.

For those who have experienced the loss of a beloved spouse, this movie captured the struggle of "keeping on keeping on." It's work! Faith, humor and friendships make it possible.

Although it starts out very sad.....as we all long for this relationship...it turns into a great story. Loved every part of it. I watch it over and over again.

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.

Well done and with a superb cast, this story is meaningful to those of us who have friends that have celebrated the events of our lives and will be there when we say goodbye to the people that made life great. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and will definitely be a movie you will want to share.
