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.

Comercially viable, easy to use instant cameras, such as the Polaroid, first became available in 1948. Rock singer Jim Morrison died on July 3, 1971, at age 27. The movie takes place in 2002. Suzette and Vinny had not seen each other since either 1982 or 1986 (they disagreed as to whether it had been 16 years or 20 years since they had parted ways). Morrison died 11 years before 1982 and 15 years before 1986. But as the Polaroid instant cameras and film went on sale about 1948, it's possible that someone other than Suzette and Vinny had photographed him, either entirely or only specific parts, between the years 1948 and 1971. And nothing was said about the dates or ages of any of those "naughty" quickie shots. See more

But you weren't really sisters.
Good 'cause I wouldn't have been comfortable if you were sisters.
You're not comfortable now, Harry.
