A wild, wicked and sad, before and after homage to rock groupies and how they age far from gracefully.

Shot through with belly laughs and bawdy energy, it boasts Goldie Hawn's best performance in years.

...a dirty little comedy about two former rock groupies reconnecting after decades apart.

Director Bob Dolman was at least smart enough to cast two actresses capable of finding the note of truth in this story and playing it beautifully.

How cute: Goldie Hawn plays Kate Hudson's role from "Almost Famous" thirty years later.

...what point is there to a film about friendship when you don't have a clue as to where the friendship should actually go?

'The Banger Sisters leaves you with a smile [but]...loses its imaginative bite...when all the ugly loose ends are neatly and unnaturally tied in a Hollywood bow.'

So insipid it may turn even superannuated hippies into raging neocons.

This movie is almost as sex and drugs free as its progenitor, Almost Famous.

There are few more gratifying moments in recent movies than Hawn forthrightly telling Rush, "I'm going to smoke. Endure it," as she plops down into a chair, crosses her legs, and lights up.

It's a shame they couldn't have put Hawn and Sarandon in a better movie than this.

Eva Amurri should have been wearing a sign that read, "My mom got me this job."

There's a good movie to be made about fifty-something former groupies, but The Banger Sisters is not that movie.
