In West Hollywood, Suzette, now on the far side of middle age, has always been a party girl, leading a life solely for the here and now. 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

Not Funny At All
6 October 2002 | by jrshelSee all my reviews

No, sorry, didn't work on any level for me. Not funny in any way. The script felt like it as it was written from the male perspective about the way 2 male buddies would act if they had been put in the same situation as Suzette and Vinnie in this film. I am a big fan of both Susan S. and Goldie H. and find that these roles were embarassing for both of them. I thought G. Rush did a great job as did Susan S.'s daughter. But there was very little resolution and very little depth to all the events that took place. Why is it that Suzette is such a positive influence on everyone around her yet can't hang on to a loser job and an apartment? What makes Vinnie decide to finally accept Suzette in her world? What makes Vinnie decide to go back to the way she used to be? What makes Vinnie's family decide to "be true" all of a sudden? What make her husband suddenly accept that the woman he married had personal interaction with all of the genitalia in the rock world? Maybe it will all be explained in "The Return Of The Banger Sisters."
