When older women pose nude for a calendar to raise money for a Yorkshire hospital, the results are a worldwide sensation.
" ... good-natured confection, filled with breezy humor and heartfelt relationships ... "
" A breezy British comedy reminiscent of The Full Monty. "
" A heartwarmer of a story. "
" A lovely romp. "
" A refreshing lark, made all the more enjoyable by a cast of fine actors. "
" Amiable enough as a frothy entertainment, with darker overtones rendered with emotional effectiveness. "
" An innocent comic exercise, fueled more on charm than titillation. "
" Breezes along for a good stretch in easy delight at age-defying liberation. "
" Calendar Girls will make your day. "
" Cozy and enjoyable. "
" Sentimental and eccentric. "
" The movie -- like the calendar -- moves along smoothly. "
" The never-naughty Calendar Girls is as easy to take as it is because director Nigel Cole avoids the hard sell. "
" Conventional, preachy and, worst of all, predictable. "
" There's a terrific comedy buried somewhere here about moral hypocrisy and community panic, but it never fully emerges. "
" Tries to be both funny and touching and and isn't enough of either. "
" Unlike the flowers and the women of Yorkshire, Calendar Girls hits its stride early on, and goes to seed well before we can enjoy its full bloom. "
