Susan ("Desperately Seeking Susan") Seidelman has spent her Aarp-eligible years making movies for that oft-ignored corner of the filmgoing public -- her Aarp-eligible peers. She tries her best to give a little R-rated edge to an audience that is too often served warmed-over mush.
So "Boynton Beach Club" was a retirement community romantic comedy that was as frank about sex as any movie Dyan Cannon made in the '70s. And Seidelman's latest, "The Hot Flashes," squeezes in a sex scene and plenty of ribald remarks in between heaping helpings of formulaic sports comedy cheese.
It's a "Best of Times" about menopausal ex-high school basketball players who take on the current crop of state champ teens in their small Texas town, all in the name of saving the local mammogram-mobile. And the movie is a golden opportunity for actresses who have hit Hollywood's "hard-to-employ" age to try their hands at Southern-fried wisecracks. »
Time to break out the Amberen and Poise! The Hot Flashes are on the court, and their taking no prisoners. This unlikely group of middle-aged women challenge the local high school girls' state basketball champs to raise money for a mobile breast cancer screening truck to continue its work. Sparks fly as the women go to comic extremes to prove themselves on and off the court, gaining a new lease on life. Check out the all-star cast, featuring Brooke Shields, Daryl Hannah, Wanda Sykes, Virginia Madsen, Camryn Manheim and Mark Povinelli in our exclusive photo gallery, along with the poster. Everyone thought their glory days were over...As you can see by their fast moves on the court, everyone was dead wrong!
The Hot Flashes comes to theaters July 12th, 2013 and stars Brooke Shields, Eric Roberts, Daryl Hannah, Virginia Madsen, Wanda Sykes, Gary Grubbs, Andrea Frankle, Camryn Manheim. The film is directed by Susan Seidelman. »
