Unlike the flowers and the women of Yorkshire, Calendar Girls hits its stride early on, and goes to seed well before we can enjoy its full bloom.

Calendar Girls may be boomer-baiting formula, but this ingratiating, big-hearted holiday treat is as British as plum pudding -- and the closest thing on the market to the famous Ealing comedies.

Helen Mirren stars in yet another professionally acted and staged wry-crisp comedy about British modesty that gets its laughs, but seems increasingly out of date.

It reels us in because it is about people who for so long have paid lip service to making a difference that they are profoundly altered when they actually do.
