Charming, feel-good flick. Most teens won't care.

Though the last act is formulaic (...) this film has everything we have come to expect from a British feel-good comedy.

...an affable, amusing, and highly diverting piece of typical British whimsy. That all of it really happened is almost beside the point but charming in itself.

Although the material is somewhat slight, Mirren and her cohorts give it weight and verve.

Mirren again shows us why she is still able to obtain leading vehicles at age 58.

The marvellous cast and robust humour work to create a delightful comedy that's both sexy and sassy. Filled with laugh-out-loud moments.

It works great as a comedy, but not so great as a drama.

What's notable is the movie's gently funny, quaint sense of humor, and the endearingly daft performances from the women.

'Calendar Girls' offers laughs, maybe a tear or two and lots of heart.

Gentlemen - you whose significant other may hold the weekend movie choice card - keep a stiff upper lip. You'll get through Calendar Girls just fine.

An innocent comic exercise, fueled more on charm than titillation.

Amiable enough as a frothy entertainment, with darker overtones rendered with emotional effectiveness.

Charming -- if finally somewhat predictable -- little British comedy from director Nigel Cole. Helen Mirren is positively luminous.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Its title characters and tidy setting guarantee a cozy time ... basking in the kind of dear, dotty glow that has permeated such hit Britcoms as The Full Monty .

Director Nigel Cole's success is due largely to his casting Helen Mirren and Julie Walters against type.
