Storyline

An unlikely basketball team of unappreciated middle-aged Texas women, all former high school champs, challenge the current arrogant high school girls' state champs to a series of games to raise money for breast cancer prevention. Sparks fly as these marginalized women go to comic extremes to prove themselves on and off the court, and become a national media sensation. Written by Hennig, Brad

Funny with a great message
23 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed The Hot Flashes. I loved the relationships between and among the women and the empowering message it sends to people of all ages. There are far too few movies with women in central roles and I hope that people will go out and see it so more will get made. I went with my seventeen year old daughter and it was great to see her cheer for fifty year old women playing basketball. I absolutely support the central theme of breast cancer prevention and I loved seeing it played out on the big screen. Yes the jokes were a little silly and unnecessarily raunchy at times, but it was generally a fun, women oriented, feel good comedy. Go out and see it; bring your daughters, bring your sons, and cheer loudly together.
