    In critical ways, the movie is a mess. The basketball scenes are so sloppy and haphazard that the would-be slapstick registers as confusion. But away from the court, the actors bring their caricatures to folksy comic life.

    Lifetime movies have their pleasures, and so does this film. Chief among them is the cast, a group of over-45 actresses who really are better than ever; in the cases of Brooke Shields and Daryl Hannah, remarkably better.

    The problem is the script, which, in scene after scene, contains no surprises.

    Early in The Hot Flashes, Brooke Shields is seen reading Menopause For Dummies, and it doesn’t take long to realize that’s precisely what you’re watching.

    What could have been an empowering and amusing riff on the typically male underdog genre is mostly charmless.

    The raunchy, feminist-revenge jokes are the best part of this feel-good, you-go-ladies sports comedy.
