    Pleasant, light-hearted fun that's soft, not edgy, but lest you think it's a Spanish "Birdcage," consider that Forque's nymphomaniac, who gives way to her urges "in the worst moments, and with the least appropriate people," seduces her son's fiancee by "accident."
  2. 70
    Although not quite as uproarious or as wickedly subversive as Pedro Almodóvar's more substantial body of work, Queens is content to scamper gaily in the wake of his achievements -- and to offer one more reason for old Franco to roll anew in his grave.
  3. The cast is perfect, but the script is like a low ceiling, keeping a lid on what should have been a confluence of riotous misadventures.
  4. 50
    A lively, well-packaged but meaningless amusement.
  5. Reviewed by: Jessica Reaves
    If frenetic pacing alone made a movie interesting, Queens would be cinematic solid gold.
  6. It's the kind of sprawling ensemble piece that screams out for a Pedro Almodovar, but in the absence of an Almodovar it simply screams out -- in persistent, tedious intervals.
  7. 25
    There's potential here, but the script is entirely too, shall we say, Hollywood. There's even a dog-poop joke.

    Warm and colorful spanish romp, should bring a smile to yourself even when it's a bit uneven. A nice little appetized for those eagerly awating Almodovar's "Volver". Lot's of cute refrences to Almodovar classics. Go just for the incredible cast if anything, who are all game and look to be having fun. Expand

    Fun & frivolous farce.
