Storyline Heading
An active member of the local Women’s Institute, Chris enlists the support of her fellow members in a fund-raising initiative for the local hospital. Her seemingly traditional idea is to produce a calendar, with a different woman photographed for each month. Sounds traditional enough, but her idea has a radical twist - the women will be in the nude.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - A light, fun, feel-good comedy most of the time. There are many scenes throughout the movie that are either sad or dramatic, especially towards the end. I believe most will feel it's a nice balance.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ...has trouble finding the right blend of comedy and drama, and the resultant product occasionally has a forced, artificial feel. The film's last third is especially problematic, as the movie introduces some potentially weighty, intriguing issues, then allows them to drop when they require too much time and/or effort to resolve. No doubt, Calendar Girls will appeal to its target demographic - women of approximately the same age as the protagonists.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good That the movie works, and it does, is mostly because of the charm of Mirren and Walters, who show their characters having so much fun that it becomes infectious. Every mention makes the inevitable reference to "The Full Monty," but this movie is not as bawdy and only about 10 percent as monty.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average ...the never-naughty Calendar Girls is as easy to take as it is because director Nigel Cole avoids the hard sell. What the movie can't quite get over, no matter how hard the filmmakers try, is the story's built-in limitations. For an actor-oriented movie with two excellent leads, Girls is handsome...

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Chris and Annie are the best of friends – very different, but very close. Living in a small village in the Yorkshire Dales, their peaceful lives are shattered when Annie's husband dies of leukemia. An active member of the local Women's Institute, Chris enlists the support of her fellow members in a fund-raising initiative for the local hospital. Her seemingly traditional idea is to produce a calendar, with a different woman photographed for each month. Each one will be engaged in a classic WI task, such as jam making, flower pressing and knitting. Sounds traditional enough, but her idea has a radical twist - the women will be in the nude. Before they know it, the women are hitting the headlines at home and abroad. Whisked off to Hollywood on a whirlwind publicity tour, they take their turn on the talk shows and in magazine photo shoots. Amidst the hype and glamour, the friendship between Chris and Annie is put to the test.
