We found this movie great fun & very enjoyable
Very funny, entertaining, everything positive! Even for red-blooded blokes, because this is probably the last time Dame Helen Mirren will do a topless scene and still titillate the fire out of me.
Enjoyable movie, funny and easy to watch
I LOVE this movie!!! Rolling on the floor sort of humour. Beautiful story, characters and scenery... a must see!
Beautiful film without the schmaltz that Hollywood would have filled this true story with. Thoroughly enjoyable, with liberating performances by the cast, with the ever dependable Helen Mirren and Julie Walters turning in stand out performances.
Loved this movie, great actors, a feel good movie with a message. Lots of laughs throughout.
A lovely, sweet film with a stellar cast. A joy to watch.
This was better than I expected. It's good fun, a simple delightful tale. Nice to see Helen Mirren playing a soft and feminine character, after all those years of Prime Suspect. Although her accent comes and goes a little distractingly here, it is a warm and enjoyable performance. Julie Walters gives the strongest performance, she is marvellous here and provides a lot of the heart of the film. The rest of the ladies are wonderful, authentic and relatable, and bringing a lot of joy to their roles.
Very good entertainment - well worth seeing.
A really lovely and fun film.Thoroughly recommend it.
A great film.. for all ages..
British comedy/drama at it's best. Very enjoyable
A very good movie.,light and entertaining. A very good storyline with lots of humour and also sadness. You will cry sometimes but laugh most of the time. An excellent cast and as usual a brilliant Helen Mirren as Chris. Definately worth watching.
A touching movie about determination and friendship. A chic flick yes, but it's well worth watching these English woman face their fears and become triumphant.
good solid movie, well acted but a little lacking in depth. 3 1/2 stars for me.
An excellent story backed by an excellent cast. Vintage Mirren performance.
Pleasant relaxing film. Excellent cast.
Based on a true story this chick flick was much better than I thought it would be. Worth a watch as has some great moments in it.
This film was so funny and the acting was very good, I would recommend to anyone.
I found this movie to be very boring. The story line was weak and not written very well. Although a "nice" story, I really didn't appreciate it in any other way.
Great cast; great concept
if you like good old fashioned funn this is the one to watch
The sort of poignant comedies that the British do so well. Helen Mirren & Julie Walters were exceptional, but a great ensemble cast piece.
Inspirational. Great fun. Well worth the watch. Good on you girls.
I didn't know that this movie was based on real events. It proves that determination can overcome any obsticle. Great viewing.
Brilliant performances by most of our favourite British character actors. Pity the over-the-top Hollywood sequence broke the spell and spoilt the mood at the end.
Delightful comedy both funny and touching which the British do brilliantly
Titillation this was not, but good humour and the occasional show of good camera work made up for that. Based on a true story, it perhaps has more to say to the armchair-bound, do-nothings in the world's communities, than it does to aspirant media personalities.
Based on a true story, this is a delightful movie with terrific acting.
Whilst I found this DVD to be good value I nevertheless felt a bit let down by it. It seemed to me to be trying too hard to do a "Full Monty" and lacked, as a result, a true identity and the performances by the any of the well known female artists did much for me. They were just not real.
Beautiful scenery. Humerous and well acted. Ended up buying the DVD.
A couple of good laughs and one teary moment. Good pick for a rainy night in.
Good movie, Good script, Good acting, Good cast
Many reasons to see this movie: is funny, interesting, well written and played, tells a real story, entertaining.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Nice to watch an adult movie without adult themes.
Loved it. Very funny and moving.
Helen Mirren puts in a great performance. Schmaltzy but fun chick flick.
A real hoot. Typical British comedy provides understated humour and uses a simple story to great effect. Serious side of the film is enhanced through good use of comedy.
Absolutely fantastic. Funny, heartwarming and touching. These are the types of films that the British do the best. Helen Mirren and Julie Walters are wonderful.
Older chick flick, a la Full Monty.
An amusing movie, which really appealed to my mother!
We sat down & just enjoyed watching this movie. A good story line, and likeable characters, and I believe the story was based on real life! If you enjoy a light hearted british comedy and the thought of older ladies taking their clothes off for charity.. Then this is for you!
