Editorial Reviews

After their '60s movie becomes a revival hit, three aging movie stars (Oscar® winner Shirley MacLaine, Oscar® nominee Debbie Reynolds and Joan Collins) are given a chance to join forces for a one-time televised concert, if they can overcome their long-standing animosity toward one another. Even when a legendary agent (Oscar® winner Elizabeth Taylor) achieves the seemingly impossible task of getting the three to agree to the concert, the producers, worries aren't over. The drama has only just begun!

When you have stars of this caliber, who needs a real plot? They do terrific send ups of themselves and the result is a funny, funny film. The fact that Reynolds and Taylor got together on screen makes the experience even more memorable.

Don't go in expecting Shakespeare ... but sit back and enjoy the inside jokes and the incredible talent of four of the living legends of Hollywood.

This film is a great chance to see these wonderful actresses(Taylor, Reynolds,MacLane) acting again! It is a farce from the beginning to the end, and you can tell these women let go and really had fun with it! I would love to see all three of these women in another film soon, especially Ms Taylor. They have so much to offer all of us! They really Don't make "STARS" like this anymore. And I for one, find that terribly sad!

Boasting the likes of silver screen legends Elizabeth Taylor, Shirley MacLaine, Joan Collins and Debbie Reynolds all combined in the one movie how could you resist taking at least a peek at this effort from 2001 titled "These Old Broads". Being a fan of all four women, this at times funny, over the top, and startlingly candid little effort is definately one of my "guilty pleasures". Certainly all four acting legends deserved a far better screenplay to sink their collective creative teeth into but on the level of pure entertainment and for the joy of seeing these legendary actresses working for the first time with each other this film is worth viewing. The result of the creative talents of Carrie Fisher, the real life daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Elaine Pope who was responsible for television's "Seinfeld" series, the pair have managed to weave much that is true to life in the four actresses often controversial acting careers into the screenplay so that the final film often has a "mirror house" feel to it that adds to the general fun as fantasy and reality mix in together.

The eternal hope of the "great comeback", is something that is a way of life for those performers in Hollywood who are past their peak or to use a polite industry term are "resting". "These Old Broads", tackles that very theme of what do ageing veteran actresses do when the limelight shifts onto younger performers . They make a comeback of course!!

Let's face it--with four such legendary performers on hand, who could resist a look at this film? To their credit, Joan Collins, Shirley MacLaine, Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor appear to be thoroughly enjoying themselves, and certainly give their all to this trifle, about three quarreling film stars reunited for a TV special when a film they made together proves an unexpected hit on its re-release. The script, co-authored by Reynolds' daughter Carrie Fisher, artfully blends fiction and fact--MacLaine's character is obsessed with New Age metaphysics, for example, and Reynolds is running, not too successfully, a Las Vegas casino. When Reynolds and Taylor, as a crochety agent, have a frank discussion about the husband the latter stole from the former, one wonders just who is talking--the characters, or the actresses themselves? Such juicy speculations keep the action bubbling past the creakier junctions of the plot, particularly the tiresome scenes with Jonathan Silverman as the beleaguered director (and MacLaine's adopted son--shades of Joan Crawford) and Nestor Carbonell as the requisite hugely egotistical producer. The shock value of hearing such frank talk about sex issuing from such classy womens' mouths wears off after a while, too. Still, "These Old Broads" is an enjoyably campy bit of nostalgia.

It is interesting to read the rather divergent reviews of this TV movie here. Personally, I loved it, having been a long-time fan of all of the ladies. Not nearly enough of Liz in the film, sure, but Debbie has some great wisecracks and Joan not only looks amazing (hardly surprising she just married someone her son's age), but displays a genuine talent for comedy.
If anything, I was disappointed with Shirley's storyline and the unnecessary "gay son" aspect. Also, aside from the headliners, some key supporting players are sadly lacklustre.
However, it is what it is - sort of an updated "Golden Girls" set in Hollywood rather than Miami.

A thoroughly enjoyable film...three veteran stars are brought together to recapture their stardom of yore, however they can't stand each other, so an uphill task from the word go for the remake of their old musical/play...but in the end it was a success. Joan Collins was great..as she always is, a combination of the older woman charm and timeless sex appeal...if you want an enjoyable night in this is a must!

The very witty and talented Carrie Fisher wrote this film, and it unites classic movie stars Shirley MacLaine, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Collins, and Fisher's mother Debbie Reynolds. For that reason alone, this movie is worth watching. The supporting talent is also great: Jonathan Silverman, Gene Barry, Pat Harrington, Pat Crawford Brown, and Nestor Carbonell.

I loved this movie when it first aired on television, and for years waited for a DVD release (it was released on VHS previously, but only recently came to DVD). It is clear that the women are having a ball.

I find this film to be very funny and entertaining. It's worth watching alone for all of the assembled talent. The picture and sound are excellent, but there are no bonus features (I would have loved an interview with Carrie Fisher).
