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.

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 »

[turns off Suzettes loud stereo]
This had better be good cause you just fucked with my music.
I'm 50, and I'm going to give myself a birthday present. I'll tell you what it is but you have to promise not to judge.
You gotta tell somebody, Harry.
I made myself a deadline. If I wasn't successful by the time I turned 50 then I'm coming back to Phoenix.

I've never fired a gun in my life. It's got only one bullet. One bullet intended for one specific person.

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.
