I'm a 24 year old guy and this is my second favorite movie =)
23 September 1999 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

Man, where do I start? All three actresses make this movie such a gem. I've seen THE LEMON SISTERS close to 30 times. What keeps me coming back for more and more is the lounge act "Rawhide". Hehehee I have laughed at that for years and years....probably the funniest thing on film. The story is powerful and moves you to rethink the friendships you have, and the friendships you've lost. These three are the luckiest three people alive.
