The Banger Sisters


Suzette (Goldie Hawn) is in her 50s but has yet to abandon her life as a fading rock groupie; when she goes to see Lavinia (Susan Sarandon), her former best friend, Suzette learns that she has changed drastically. A movie with a plot this thin has to rely on charm to succeed. Casting the two stars as aging groupies is a terrific idea; Hawn in particular is perfect and the clashes with her now conservative friend are amusing. However, once Sarandon abandons her suburban life and joins Hawn, the film doesn’t know how to continue the story. Geoffrey Rush’s presence is a mixed blessing; his character is fun but a bit pointless.

2002-U.S. 98 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Bob Dolman. Cast: Goldie Hawn (Suzette), Susan Sarandon (Lavinia Kingsley), Geoffrey Rush (Harry Plummer), Robin Thomas, Erika Christensen, Eva Amurri.

Trivia: Amurri, who plays one of Sarandon’s kids, is also her real-life daughter.
