Wonderfully funny
16 February 2001 | by (xxxx) – See all my reviews

I have never seen Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, or Joan Collins act in their prime, and what drew me to this movie was the fact that all of the old stars were in it. I have seen Shirley MacLaine act, and I was pretty much hoping that they didn't give her a dopey motherly part in which she's too eccentric and snotty. Let me just say one thing about that, they gave her a motherly part in which she's eccentric. A little on the snotty part, yes, but she's definitely not dopey. Shirley plays Kate Westbourne, a mother of "documentary" producer Weslie Westbourne. Kate was once in a show with two other women, Piper and Addie, and now finds herself realizing on what she really missed with her son. Addie (COLLINS) is a real sex-maniac whom slept with basically EVERYBODY and has a run-away jail-bird for a boyfriend. What makes Addie so funny is her "tummy tucks" and "face lifts". She still thinks that she's twenty-five. ("Look dear, one more face lift and she'll be able to blow her nose through her forehead.) Piper is the good-two-shoes ditzy blonde whom everyone loves. Debbie plays this part perfectly and is so cute at it. Piper and her husband Bill have a hotel. The nice thing about this woman is that she raised four children and unlike her 'peers' has a decent life. The truly funny thing about this movie is not only in the cast, but in the writing as well. Carrie Fisher was FANTASTIC. She wrote the script so that it had that wring of adultness to it but didn't stray from reality. As a fan of old movies, I was grateful to see one more "dance in the limelight" for the old broads. They deserved it. :)
