The Press Reviews

  • There are many corny moments ... But on the whole, one can't deny Poms has a life-affirming quality and an emotionally charged finish that'll have you leaving the theatre on a high. Full Review

  • File under forgettable fun. Full Review

  • It lands as voyeuristic condescension and flattens the presumably full lives of women elders into hollow inspiration fodder. Full Review

  • An uncomfortable blend of sickness and silliness, this dancing-past-the-graveyard comedy suggests that the many travails of aging can be endured if you only gather enough friends and surrender enough dignity. Full Review

  • The blueprint for a genuinely inspired, warm-hearted dramedy is indeed there, it's just that the filmmakers can't figure out how to properly utilise what they have. Full Review

  • It's fine to make a film that's just supposed to make an audience smile (hello, "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again") but this film doesn't even get close to that level of joy. Full Review

  • Inoffensive and well-meaning, the performances elevate it but don't entirely save it. Full Review
