Tea With the Dames (Nothing Like a Dame) Reviews

I guarantee that the appearance of the end credits will leave you wanting much more.

While these four actresses are magnificent, their choice of directors is less so; Roger Mitchell (Notting Hill, Hyde Park on the Hudson) makes his biggest contribution by moving the discussion indoors at the sight of rain.

Each of these dames of the realm gets to play the choicest of roles: herself.

Call it a gabfest. Label it a talkathon. But Tea with the Dames, directed by Roger Michell, is so much more.

A conversational feast with four acting Dames-Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright-who are not above profane fun and confessions that make them human. Don't miss the chance to bask in the pleasure of their company.

The assembled dames are so smart, witty and strong-willed, it's a wrench to have to part company from them at the end of the film.

A consistently hilarious 90-minute chat that could have gone on for twice as long (or, ideally, a weekly television series) without ever feeling like too much of a good thing.

It plays like the jazzy riff of a seasoned quartet, complete with buoyant solos that may not connect to much else but are still a joy to witness all the same.

A takeaway from "Tea With the Dames" is that conversation is itself a kind of performance art, and it follows that these women do it better than most.

In a perfect world, "Tea With the Dames" could be a series. Let us be flies on the wall for this posse's weekly gathering for tea and convivial cackling.

For the simple idea of sitting them all at a table and turning on a couple of movie cameras, the director Roger Mitchell should get a royal commendation himself.
