Critic Reviews for The Iron Ladies
Hilarious true story of Thailand's champion volleyball team that was composed of flaming drag queens
Broad, sentimental but ultimately irresistible.
If you can tolerate its predictability, you may fall for Iron Ladies' lighthearted spirit and affectionate humor.
Not since Cool Runnings, the film about the Olympic bobsled team from Jamaica, have we had a sports movie so offbeat and upbeat as The Iron Ladies.
Fun if formulaic.
Audience Reviews for The Iron Ladies
Amazing and outrageous funny true story of Thai volleyball team composed mostly of transsexuals, transvestites and some rather effeminate gay guys to the national championships in 1996. That also happened in an extraordinary true story of a Thai boxer - Beautiful Boxer.
There is not one original bone in this movie's body. It is highly given to cliche, the drama drips with unapologetic melodrama, and the characters come close to being one dimensional. With that being said, it is rollicking good fun. The acting sells the one dimensional characters, the cliches and melodrama make the movie good fun where it could have easily fallen victim to being too serious, and the script is lovable. The characters are quirky and lovable, the movie fun and frivolous. I love every moment of it.
Pretty funny, with some great quirky characters.
