A lame script ruins a potentially good premise.

This is the directorial debut of Bob Dolman, who got his start scripting WKRP in Cincinnati, and as one might expect, he handles the comic material with aplomb and falls on his face whenever the story turns serious.

Watching movies like this, it's easy to understand actresses' common complaint about the quality of roles for women of a certain age.

The Banger Sisters is not a terrible film but ultimately a missed opportunity, an opportunity to show the outcomes of those deluded Band-Aids from Almost Famous, or even as a demonstration of the inevitable paths of people whose experiences peaked when th

As performances caricaturais do trio principal comprovam que até mesmo atores talentosos podem ser derrotados por roteiros pavorosos como o desta produção.

Despite its rock 'n' roll trappings, The Banger Sisters is like an After-School Special with better actors and more swearing.

The performances are easy to love while the story is not.

It might have been fun, but [director Bob] Dolman focuses on all the wrong things.

Three Oscar winners and roughly the same amount of decent lines between them.

Hawn never stops surprising me at how truly talented she is...she's just a good actor, with an uncanny ability to own the words her character speaks.

'Ejemplo de una cinta en que no importa el talento de su reparto o lo interesante que pudo haber resultado su premisa, pues el resultado es francamente aburrido y, por momentos, deplorable.'

...Hawn is undoubtedly bubbly and effervescent, and she pretty much carries this trifle, but her woman-child act is growing thin, even when she's apparently spoofing it.

Diversión que no pretende innovar o dar respuestas, una de esas cintas que puede verse sin mayores culpas en la sala de cine. Goldie Hawn vale por completo cualquier precio que pueda pagarse por la entrada...

I felt sorry for the deceased Jim Morrison, an authentic icon of the hippie era, whose name is used in vain here.

Not the greatest film, but nice to watch the clash between arrested development and nouveau establishment be smoothed out by something as great as love.

Talk about getting bangs for your buck! The Banger Sisters is a wonderfully observed, freshly inventive human drama told as a grown up comedy with some uproarious moments and outstanding performances.
