One of the greatest movies about friendship ever made starring the incandescent Helen Mirren and the exquisite Julie Walters. It's funny. It's endearing. It's charming. It's real. It's based on a true story. Don't miss this one.

What a fun movie. Based on a true story, these women do it justice. Taking a horrible situation and addressing it with humor in such a positve way. Recommended for a fun girls night.

Touching story about life purpose and how to achieve success.

This was a fun movie. Based on a true story, 12 middle aged British women pose nude (mostly camouflaged) for a calendar to support their local women's group and to raise money towards cancer. They become a sensation and later travel to America. The movie celebrates friendship and the beauty of older women.

Funny and entertaining movie. The acting was excellent. The Yorkshire accents were amazingly convincing considering that most of the actresses don't normally speak with that accent. The fact that this was based on a true story made it especially interesting. On one level, this was just an entertaining story. On a deeper level, it exposes what can happen to ordinary people and their families when they are caught up in unexpected success and attention. it is also the story of how much we can achieve if we step outside our normal social constraints and go for what we believe in.

Comedy as light and fluffy as a sponge cake, (but basically a serious, true story), as served up by a very masterful chef. Helen Mirren and Julie Walters (AND the rest of the women) are in top, or topless if you will, form, and the English countryside is soooo beautifully photographed !

Really really funny with gorgeous locations and eccentric brit characters but also with a deeper level. Loved this movie.
