Storyline

When fiftysomething Suzette loses her job as a bartender she decides to make a road trip to visit her old friend Vinnie who she hasn't seen since their days as groupies back in the day. On the way she meets Harry, a nervous writer who says he is going home to confront his father, then shows her his gun. Once they reach their destination Suzette finds that Vinnie is now Lavinia, a conservative housewife who is reluctant to reexperience the flower power of her youth, and Harry finds confrontation with himself rather than with his father.

Trivia

During the "Rock Cock" sequence, the girls were shown Polaroids of the crew who had volunteered to be photographed especially for that sequence. The surprise on Susan Sarandon's face is quite genuine when she saw who the photographs were of and recognized the faces. See more »

Goofs

During the "Family Dinner", a bottle of red wine is prominently displayed on the table. The table is viewed from several angles and it is clear that this is the only such bottle there. Lavinia suddenly rises and walks away but then returns to grab the bottle and this time leaves with bottle in hand (and mouth). The camera returns to the table where the bottle is once again prominently displayed. See more »

oh goody... another one of these
28 January 2004 | by (US of A) – See all my reviews

... another movie in which white people are shown to be uptight, twisted amoral morons needing a 'natural force' to show them the error of their ways. In this case, though, it's not Whoopi Goldberg, it's Goldie Hawn who breezes into town (Phoenix, in this case), teaches everyone who their true self is (in less than 24 hours - quite a trick!), and breezes out again. It's an old story (these days), and not very well told.

The only real character (despite the title) is Goldie Hawn's Suzette. Nobody else really gets to enunciate what the heck is wrong with them (though they all know it, which is quite a trick in itself), or gets to say anything interesting at all. So what we're left with is Goldie Hawn and a bunch of cardboard cutouts of unhappy people whose problems are so skin-deep that they can be solved more or less instantaneously (heck, even the guy with father issues, who intends to shoot himself over his father's grave is cured with the equivalent of "snap out of it" and a little -- very little -- sex.)

So give this one a pass; it ain't worth your time. 2/10
