    For all its contrivances, the film is cheerfully rude and surprisingly generous to the mothers, most of whom find sizzling new romances at an age when their American counterparts are reduced to sexless dithering or played as humiliating punch lines to jokes about horny old hags.

    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.

    If frenetic pacing alone made a movie interesting, Queens would be cinematic solid gold.
  5. 50
    A lively, well-packaged but meaningless amusement.
  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 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. Collapse
