October 1, 2019
Despite the adherence to a cookie-cutter formula, the bold choice to address the more serious themes surrounding old age is precisely what makes Poms stand out.

These women deserve so much better... It feels forced and problematic.
August 23, 2019
Inoffensive and well-meaning, the performances elevate it but don't entirely save it.

One will not enjoy the movie as much as Diane Keaton perhaps enjoyed doing it. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 9, 2019
A product constructed based on formulas and stereotypes. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 8, 2019
Just a couple of jokes... are not enough to spend an hour and a half in this luxury old folks' home. [Full review in Spanish]
August 8, 2019
Diane Keaton's dark humor and Jacki Weaver's extraordinary gracefulness are the best reward. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 17, 2019
Despite its good intentions, Poms cannot sustain its predictable narrative. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 14, 2019

Zara Hayes celebrates life with optimism, but in Poms forgets to celebrate cinema. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 10, 2019
Luckily Hayes's film is trying to say something sweet and is even relevant to today. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film counts with a Diane Keaton that is overacting making gestures of disgust. [Full Review in Spanish]

I found it, in order, depressing, moving and uplifting.
May 24, 2019
Cinema catnip for senior citizens and a foolproof chick flick for grandma and her pals.
May 20, 2019
Many of the conflicts are artificially manufactured and the comedy is often anemic, but Keaton and her co-stars manage to invest their roles with genuine vitality.
May 17, 2019
Keaton is solid in the lead role, and Weaver has some fun as her sidekick but there's definitely a feeling that they could have used some better material and execution here.
May 17, 2019
A little cheesy in places but when the star is as adorable as Diane Keaton, who cares. Plus there is a message to all "seniors" that you are still a part of the human race.
May 16, 2019
While there are a few touching strides for senior sisterhood here, many of the women are too faintly sketched to avoid stereotypes.
May 15, 2019
What irks me most about this film is that, while it's premised on empowering elderly women to overcome the barriers of age and physical frailty, it's not especially interested in granting them complete autonomy.
May 15, 2019
[A] silly-minded chuckler that needs to be rejected from the try-out squad. Of all the cheerleading routines that Keaton and her calisthenics cougars could have done in Poms is the split...as in splitting from this fruitless, rheumatoid romp.
