From Back Cover:

"A Rowdy, Smart, Rattling Good Comedy."
-Gene Shalit, NBC-TV

Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon are The Banger Sisters - two former groupies who got it on with every late '60s music legend with a guitar and a Y-chromosome! Now, over two decades later, Suzette (Hawn) is still her brassy self and Lavinia (Sarandon) is a prim, proper suburban wife and mother. When their two worlds collide, the ensuing 'big bang' will rock the house down with laughter!

"Hawn and Sarandon are a match made in heaven."

My Comments:

Not the greatest comedy I've seen, but a fun watch. I especially enjoyed seeing Geoffrey Rush's sweet, prudish "Harry" - a vast departure from his Academy Award nominated role as the Marquis de Sade in Quills. I also rather liked Eva Amurri's performance, playing daughter to her real-life mother, Susan Sarandon.
