Critic Reviews

  1. 80
    Sarandon's motherly sexiness is appealing, but it's Hawn, in a warm and deep performance as the hapless but free-spirited Suzette, who walks away with the movie.
  2. 80
    A highly entertaining and refreshingly nonjudgmental movie
  3. 75
    A lot of fun, with an undeniable energy sparked by two actresses in their 50s working at the peak of their powers. Juicy roles for older women? Let the revolution begin.
  4. 75
    Pretty thin, but you grin while you're watching it.
  5. Some numbers: Hawn and Sarandon (both 56) are arguably the first women in American popular culture to be pushing 60 and sexy. Hard to believe, but when Joan Crawford and Bette Davis were comparable ages (59 and 54), they were the frightening gargoyles of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"
  6. What The Banger Sisters offers in place of an eloquent statement is the charm of two actresses at the top of their game in flashy roles and a smart script that's decidedly more coarse than sentimental.
  7. Forget the awful trailer that makes the movie look like chalk screeching on a blackboard. The Banger Sisters is sheer fun, and a great showcase for Hawn.
  8. Reviewed by: Lisa Nesselson
    Adult fans of good thesping in the service of a lightweight but thoroughly entertaining story should bask in the antics.
  9. Hawn mows down everything in her path with a giggle. It's great fun to watch her just eat up this movie.
  10. Hawn always appears to be acting with a vengeance, but Sarandon just breathes her part.
  11. 63
    Likable, cheerfully off-color comedy.
