Many critics have already not been kind to "The Banger Sisters". Perhaps they didn't like "First Wives' Club" either, but that film has become a Goldie Hawn classic. And "Banger Sisters" has all the same elements that will make this a screen and DVD favorite, as well.
The key to Hawn's success has always been successful partnering with other actors and actresses that act as a catlyst for her charm. In this film, she's fortunate to work with Susan Sarandon, perhaps even better with Goldie than the combination of Diane Keaton-Bette Midler. Sarandon's character is a little bit of both. The comedy is gentle and the message has both women, in their late forties, go in search of what has been missing from their adult lives. They have a crazy camaraderie that was born of shared experiences as rock groupies in the late 60's and early 70's, when sex and drugs were plentiful. Hawn's character, Suzette, has continued to live the experience, and the film opens with a scene of her being fired from her job as a bartender.
Sarandon's character (Vinnie, now Lavinia), took a different road when she split from Suzette, and she's now the successful wife of a wealthy man with political aspirations in Phoenix. Lavinia's devoted herself to the care and raising of her two daughters, and is dismayed, at first, when Suzette shows up. She's never confided her wild teenage experiences to husband or daughters, and they're frankly shocked at her choice of friends, and the influence Suzette seems to have over her. The contrast is best expressed when Vinnie realizes her whole life, like her perfectly kept and coordinated wardrobe, has been "beige".

Suzette (Goldie Hawn) used to be one half of the infamous "Banger Sisters", a pair of man-hungry groupies who slept with the likes of Jim Morrison and Kieth Richards. Now she's just lost her job as Bartender at The Whiskey-A-Go-Go, and being broke, decides to go hit up Vinnie, the other half of the Bangers (Susan Sarandon), whom she hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years, for a loan. Suzette knows Vinnie is married to a Lawyer and living in Arizone, but she doesn't know that Vinnie is now Lavinia, the straight-arrow wife, and mother of two.....and although Suzette was Vinnie's best pal, Lavinia isn't going to be too thrilled to see her wild past come strolling into her perfect present.
The movie is cute and funny, but the real reason too see it is the performances of Hawn and Sarandon. The chemistry between them is great. Goldie is as cute and sexy as ever, and it's pretty ironic that she's basically playing the grown-up version of her daughter Kate Hudson's character in Almost Famous. Geoffrey Rush is great fun as a neurotic who gets swept up into Suzette's crazy life. The Banger Sisters ain't exactly Citizen Kane, but it was a fun way to spend a few hours.

I've read most of the reviews already posted and agree with much of what has been written. I just had to add one more thing. I AM ADDICTED TO THIS CRAZY MOVIE! Why? You tell me... why does one get addicted to a movie with as many flaws as this one has? I think because I so strongly identify with the characters. No, I wasn't a groupie in the 60's, but I was a teenager. And now I'm not so young. I seem to identify with Suzette AND with Vinnie. I've cleaned up my act, but I still harbor a longing for "those days". I agree that the script leaves reality in the dust in may ways, (example, Vinnie's husband is way too accepting to be real) but still.. I'm addicted. I have watched it several times, including all the extra features and footage I can get my hands on. Goldie, Susan, Geoffrey and the crew succeed in taking me back and making me think, think and think some more about where I came from, where I got to, and where I am going from here. P.S. I'm glad to find out that Goldie didn't acutally get her [breasts] done, it was just costuming. At age 47, I worry about those things..... If you are a middle-aged baby-boomer grappling with weight gain, kids, loss of "coolness", etc., you may share my addictive reaction to this flick...

Format: DVD
I love this film. I tend to rate movies by how well they accomplish what they set out to do. Schindler's List is trying to do something much different than Fried Green Tomatoes, and they need to be rated on their own merits. In this case, The Banger Sisters deftly accomplishes what it's meant to do, and that's to provide a heart-warming, funny movie about friendship, with a bit of nostalgia thrown in for flavor.

I hadn't even heard of The Banger Sisters until I saw it for sale on the used rack at the local video store and picked it up because it had Susan Sarandon in it, a long time favorite of mine. Because I didn't know anything about it, I had zero expectations as to plot or movie quality, which sometimes helps. I ended up being totally charmed and have watched it several times and will surely watch it several more.

The movie has a lot to say about how people change, or don't change, how a person can lose her sense of self, how raising children has some inherent hypocrisy involved, and about how important friends are to our identities. But these are all said subtly and just add a bit of background depth to what is namely a light comedy about old friends.

The performances by Hawn and Sarandon are outstanding. As is the performance by Geoffry Rush. The three characters are all uniquely different, and yet somehow the three of them manage to make a wonderful and crazily believable whole. The fourth best performance in the movie is turned in by the fantastic soundtrack.

So maybe while not a movie for deep thinkers or for elite cinema buffs, it's a wonderful way to spend an hour and a half for those who love movies about the bonds of friendship, who like a bit of nostalgia for the great days of rock and roll, and who appreciate a suprise, side-splittingly funny scene or turn of phrase now and then.
