    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Because Sarandon is such a good actress, she makes the movie watchable, and there are a couple of laughs to be had. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Terrific performers doing what they're often forced to do, overcoming sorely flawed material. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    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?" show more

    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. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    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. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Hawn always appears to be acting with a vengeance, but Sarandon just breathes her part. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Could have taken a witty scalpel to baby-boomer posturings. But Dolman, whose instrument of choice is the rubber mallet of smarm, just isn't the man for the job -- he ends up enshrining the very hypocrisy that should be dissected. show more
