Critics Consensus

While the cast is something to cheer about, Poms squanders its talented stars on a clichéd comedy that disrespects the demographic it's trying to celebrate.

  • Director Zara Hayes, to her credit, mixes some dark humor and blistering social commentary into this otherwise frothy cocktail of pratfalls and platitudes.

  • Why worry about dying when you can spend your time dancing? Although "Poms" is an imperfect package, one can't help but take the message to heart.

  • The main cast does far better than the script in conveying both a sense of sisterhood, and the exquisite poignancy of the friendships that bloom as the end of life approaches.

    May 10, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Look, films need conflict, otherwise there's nothing for the characters to do. "Poms" never comes up with anything worthwhile to fight against, let alone cheer.

  • Even by the elastic standards of mass-market escapist trifles the creators of POMS might consider the challenges of growing old and confronting death without infantilizing both characters and audience.
