Critic Reviews for The Hot Flashes

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11)

In critical ways, the movie is a mess. The basketball scenes are so sloppy and haphazard that the would-be slapstick registers as confusion. But away from the court, the actors bring their caricatures to folksy comic life.

A Lifetime movie, minus the commercials, but with every predictable twist and turn and treacly message intact. She shoots. It bores.

Lifetime movies have their pleasures, and so does this film.

[A] strained and soapy empowerment comedy ...

Top Critic

Even though it earns an R rating for profanity and some risque material, it's too meek and mild-mannered to qualify as brave, or even slyly subversive.

This comedy deserves credit for taking a decided viewpoint - and delivering a heartfelt if occasionally misguided message.

Audience Reviews for The Hot Flashes

Everyone thought their glory days were over. Everyone thought wrong.

Good movie! I did find some of it funny but again the jokes weren't really for me. The message of this movie is inspiring and does leave you feeling good even though the movie is very predictable. The one thing I can say about this is that it would have been very good as a Lifetime movie instead of a direct-to-DVD movie. Overall, better then I expected but I think if you are the audience this is going for you will really like it.

An unlikely basketball team of unappreciated middle-aged Texas women, all former high school champs, challenge the current arrogant high school girls' state champs to a series of games to raise money for breast cancer prevention. Sparks fly as these marginalized women go to comic extremes to prove themselves on and off the court, and become a national media sensation.
