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

A hidden gem? No, a gem on best display
1 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

The movie was an enormous surprise. I expected s0me 90 minutes of thin fun, and I got to see one of the best, simple small movies about the life we most often let pass by and let it to very few we usually consider half wrecks to live it, not understanding what we've done with what was given to us and we did refuse. I don't expect this review to help you, but it helps me to see it clearer. Most reviewers did understand nothing, and demonstrated so that people feel better when aging as working, seeing, loving, behaving as zombies, in other words like 90% of those who drove us crazy when we were 16 or 22. Thank you all very much for reading this! Besides Goldie Hawn who shines like a handful of diamonds the director succeeded to put together an excellent team of first class actors, they all together give you so many hands full with diamonds that you look like Shiva, the multi-armed Hindu God :-) Mihai-Robert Soran-Schwartz
