Book Club: The Next Chapter

NEW YORK (OSV News) -- With age comes wisdom, so we're told. But apparently that doesn't apply to the quartet of AARP-eligible friends at the core of the romantic comedy sequel "Book Club: The Next Chapter" (Focus). These seniors remain addicted to the same brand of sophomoric bedroom gags that marred the kickoff.

In fact, things go from bad to worse in comparison to the 2018 original since the culmination of returning director and co-writer (with Erin Simms) Bill Holderman's follow-up swerves from the merely cringeworthy to the morally reprehensible. Thus his film should be avoided by all.
