These Old Broads

5.81 h 29 min2001X-Ray16+
A 40 year old movie's re-release is a hit and there's focus on the 3 main actresses. The adopted son of one has to make these old broads attend a show together. One problem: they hate each other.

Call Me Weird But I Liked It
Verified purchase
It was light-hearted, a few uncalled for adult jokes, but overall fun. Nothing deep here, just three broads who detest each other getting together for a show, with La Liz as their agent. Lots of self-deprecating humor, and the banter between Debbie and Liz just smacks of inside jokes about the real life soap opera of Liz-Debbie-Eddie. Matter of fact they all seem like caricatures of themselves, Shirley as a new age sort of person, Debbie as the (maybe or maybe not) goody two shows, Joan as a plastic surgery addict, and Liz as a heavyset drinker. I'm not usually one for this sort of thing but it was a fun movie to watch one evening. Probably appeals more to women or anyone into "camp."

Four icons together in hilarious movie
Verified purchase
I wish Amazon would list the names of the actors however this film dropped in my queue and I see my favorite actress Shirley MacLaine joined by the fabulous and famous Liz Taylor, Joan Collins, and Debbie Reynolds-how can you go wrong-it was great to see them back in action again and kudos on "keeping on keeping on" especially at their age. So many hilarious lines I had to rewind and pause to make sure I could read them all, exactly what I needed tonight was something that me laugh with a great surprise of Shirley MacLaine included.

This is a really fun film staring Debbie Reynolds, Shirley MacLaine, Joan Collins and Elizabeth Taylor that could be titled 'All In The Family'.

The story is well written by Debbie's daughter Carrie Fisher.

Shirley played a character based on Debbie in the film written by Carrie Fisher, 'Post Cards From The Edge'.

Elizabeth stole Debbie's husband Eddie Fisher.

As Carrie Fisher said they are all related by scandal.

This film is really unique because Debbie Reynolds stars with Elizabeth Taylor. In reality, they made up and became close again several years after Elizabeth divorced Eddie. In fact they were so close that Elizabeth left Debbie some valuable items in her will.

Spectacular cast, cute if hokey teleplay, appallingly inept direction
Verified purchase
Look, this thing should have been great. This cast swapping bitchy, Carrie Fisher dialogue?

But, unfortunately, it just isn't very well-made. It's directed like a one-take daytime soap.

So, before buying it, ask yourself what you're in it for. Is it just to see these spectacular ladies and hear some fun Carrie Fisher witticisms? If so, go for it. But if you're looking for something that's actually, well, good... You will probably be disappointed.

Great film with great cast of leading ladies! Recommend!
Verified purchase
Fantastic film with a great cast of talented leading ladies. The film is entertaining, amusing with laughs from beginning to end. Maclaine, Collins and Reynolds mesh well together, as if they are old friends. A fantastic tale about behind the scenes in Hollywood. The audio and video quality are consistent throughout.

Love all these women
Verified purchase
Love all these women, but the story line was a bit short for me, they could have done a better job with this one, but you still have moments that make you laugh out loud, but that's about as good as it gets. I purchased this one because it wasn't available to rent. Now, I wish I'd have waited till you could rent it, as it's one thats not worth watching over & over again as Steel Magnolias (for example) was. Save you're money on this one, but if you're like me, you can't resist anything Shirley McLaine's in. Buy it cheap if you want to see it, and enjoy it is all I can say.

Delicious fun
Verified purchase
Watched this the 1st time today and enjoyed it so much. Very entertaining to see these movie stars again its a farce on the highest level, carrie fischers writing was on point as always. Elizabeth taylor stole the show with her brazen scene eating performance, so full of life and having a ball with it all. I cant believe the amount of physical slapstick these troopers gave for the film. There is wig snatching, floor scrambing brawls and dancing and singing and corpse hiding. Throughout it all is the love for these legends of screen.

What in GOD's Name Was THAT???
Verified purchase
This had to be Lifetime Television Movie's or the Hallmark Channel's most expensive worthless endeavors ever. How do you manage to get four stars of this incandescence to burn with the same intensity as a fart being ignited? I actually somehow miss Elizabeth Taylor and Debbie Reynolds less now, and resent that Shirley MaClaine and Joan Collins could not be punished for this film with a case of the shingles and a broken hip. This movie was AWFUL!
