Could Raise the Roof, in which residents of a decrepit Liverpool rest home make their own porn movie to raise cash to repair the ceiling, be far behind?

A paper-thin comic distraction.

Calendar Girls doesn't suffer from the tweeness of the likes of Saving Grace or Waking Ned Devine, but then again, it rarely raises a laugh.

'They dropped everything for a good cause' would seem to refer more to the filmmakers than the gutsy, middle-aged women shedding their clothes for a hospital couch.

What Calendar Girls gives us is all a bit too thin for a feature film. Or even jam.

There's a terrific comedy buried somewhere here about moral hypocrisy and community panic, but it never fully emerges.

...proves Andy Warhol's famous dictum, with one added wrinkle: In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes, especially if you take your clothes off.

Calendar Girls' last two acts, 'What Chris and Annie Learned in Hollywood,' are nothing more than rote recitation of the perils of fame.

A classic example of a feature-length film that has just enough material in it for an appealing trailer.

The humor lacks bite, and the drama is forced.

Even as the rest of the movie begins to go south, you can still count on Helen Mirren hitting us with those perfectly sardonic line deliveries.

Tampoco hay que ponerse demasiado exigente; (...) la película tiene su gracia y cumple con casi todo lo que promete.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Despite the mischievous implications of its title, the film ultimately reaffirms the status quo with all the certitude of an episode of 'Mayberry RFD.'

Nigel Cole's feature-length sitcom Calendar Girls reimagines The Full Monty with boobies.

Places itself in a tradition of films that are fairly easy to make, looks like it's doing a professional job and still ends up failing.
