When the here and now leads to her without a job, no money and thus no sense of whether her partying life has gotten her anywhere, she decides to go into her distant past to visit in Phoenix an old friend, Vinnie, who she has not seen or talked to in twenty years. In their shared past, Suzette and Vinnie were Los Angeles groupies coined the Banger Sisters for their penchant to sleep with any and all rock musicians who came through Southern California. Suzette does know however that Vinnie's life has changed, she married to Raymond, a lawyer who has political aspirations, the two who have two teenaged daughters. It is in part the reason she decides to visit now well off Vinnie, to see if she will lend her some money. Suzette reconsiders when she finds out just how far Vinnie has changed. She now goes by her full given name Lavinia, and is not only the... Written by Huggo

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 »

Funny, Entertaining, and Reflective
20 September 2002 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Banger Sisters is a funny romp and completely enjoyable movie about living life and being true to oneself. Geoffrey Rush is over the top and provides a real different sense of humor while Goldie Hawn is her reliable, funny, sad, and confident self. Susan Sarandon gets to evolve or de-evolve in front of the audience in this comedy drama. A great way to enjoy the beginning of the 2002 fall movie season to bring in the autumn with a movie that reflects upon our past and where we are going. It brings two very different cultures together in a poignant and comical way.
