Critic Reviews for Queen Bees

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (14)

  • It's a film that seems to have been dreamt up by a reverent grandchild who assumed they knew everything there was to know and never thought to ask the grandparent themselves.

  • An ideal date night or friends' group evening out. Love is love and there's no expiration date. Or, as Curtin's bossy biddy says, tongue planted firmly in cheek, "Eighty is the new 18."

  • Half a dozen veteran performers do their best to elevate a patchy script in Queen Bees, a gentle romantic comedy set in a retirement community.

    June 11, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A middling comedy that plays like it was underwritten by the Retirement Community Association of America, if there were such a thing.

  • For all the superficiality and shortcomings of "Queen Bees," the film's biggest draw, and strongest attribute, is its packed ensemble of iconic actors.

  • The writing and directing are highly uneven, but "Queen Bees" is made generally watchable by a veritable Who's Who of vintage talent.

Audience Reviews for Queen Bees

  • Jun 15, 2021
    Right out of the gate this film was going to be either a hard sell or one with very limited (read: geriatric) appeal, and neither is a immediate recommendation, a ringing endorsement. The script, a surprise diamond with many facets, rightly recognizes this by having the lead character struggle against the set-up, leading us gently into a story about an elderly woman who reluctantly goes to a retirement home. Doesn't sound like much put that way but the stellar cast lean into the story, and the director is savvy enough to let his players play. The result is an intelligent entertainment that respects it's audience and it's cast. Everybody gets, and gives, butter. Well done.
