Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Here's a lighthearted romp that gleefully thumbs its nose at today's youth-oriented comedies -- and, in the process, supplies two mature, Oscar-winning actresses with delightfully playful roles. Goldie Hawn portrays Suzette, a bubbly, middle-aged barmaid whose sole claim to fame is her checkered "career" as a 1960s rock groupie. After being fired, she goes on a road trip to find her former partner, Lavinia Susan Sarandon, now a staid suburban mother with two rebellious teenage daughters Erika Christensen and Eva Amurri. Director Bob Dolman deftly integrates plot and character, gradually drawing detailed and not altogether flattering portraits of the two women, who are shown to have taken different life paths after swinging through the '60s and '70s together. Hawn's Suzette seems to regret never having had a family of her own, even as Sarandon regrets surrendering her independence and losing her joie de vivre. Rekindling the friendship results in some tempestuous moments, but under Dolman's direction the mood never gets too heavy, and various minor crises are resolved without undue angst. Sarandon, with the more demanding part, delivers a marginally better performance than her costar, but they're both excellent, as is Geoffrey Rush, playing a chronically depressed screenwriter Suzette picks up en route to Lavinia's home. Charming and funny without being saccharine or condescending, The Banger Sisters is sure to revive pleasant, long-dormant memories in its older viewers while beguiling younger ones. Dolman supplies a commentary for the DVD, which also includes an HBO "First Look" special and a blooper reel.
All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
After the plastic-surgery hilarity of Death Becomes Her and the prominent collagen jokes in The First Wives Club, it seems like Goldie Hawn would want to draw less attention to her lips. Nevertheless, they're all over The Banger Sisters. As Suzette, an aging rock chick out to reconnect with a former fellow groupie, the actress constantly applies glistening coats of girlish gloss to her smile. The effect is almost as amusing and unsettling as watching the matronly Susan Sarandon pour herself into animal-print spandex during the film's fairy-tale climax. It's this ability to highlight the absurdities and indignities of aging that allows The Banger Sisters to overcome its frictionless script and say a thing or two while it's delivering its easy, bawdy laughs. Time may not be kind to the face or the body, but it rarely leaves one's sense of selfhood intact, either, and it's this deeper sense of change and loss that the film hammers home. Beyond an unbelievably happy ending, writer/director Bob Dolman doesn't succeed in bringing much resolution to the thorny issues he raises. But in an industry that regularly turns older actresses into campy grotesques (see everyone from Bette Davis to Faye Dunaway), it's refreshing to see a major Hollywood film that pauses to think about the real issues at the heart of growing older. Geoffrey Rush has lots of fun as Suzette's obsessive-compulsive beau, while Eva Amurri's precocious performance suggests that she could corner the market on Liza Minnelli-style ingenues if Tori Spelling tires of them. Ultimately, such spot-on casting and that hint of something deeper excuse The Banger Sisters for its feel-good formula.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
Hawn and Sarandon hit the ground running, and are so funny and goofy that they distract and delight us.

    Sucky Movie!

    This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen and the only likeable character is the depressed guy played by Geoffrey Rush! Geoffrey Rush, Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandan have all been in much better movies!
