Storyline Heading
Martha moves into a retirement community and starts a cheerleading squad with her fellow residents, Sheryl, Olive and Alice, proving that it's never too late to follow your dreams.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This inspirational comedy is primarily aimed at women, in particularly older ones, but it has enough appeal in its humor and message to be well received outside the target audience. Fans of Diane Keaton and Jacki Weaver will especially enjoy though other familiar names such as Rhea Perlman and especially Pam Grier have much smaller roles. Some suggestive humor and mature subject matter may be of concern to some parents, but most will find this safe viewing for pre-teens and above, especially for girls.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average This cast of old pros may not be up to flips and basket catches, but they keep things lively. Keaton is as radiant as ever and Weaver is clearly having a blast. The main cast does far better than the script in conveying both a sense of sisterhood, and the exquisite poignancy of the friendships that bloom as the end of life approaches...

NY Post Full Review
Poor "Poms” is an embarrassment. Keaton, whose character secretly has cancer, overplays, and big-personality actresses like Pam Grier and Rhea Perlman are unfairly muted. Jacki Weaver as the promiscuous Sheryl is the only winner here.

The Guardian Full Review
Poor ...wastes the talents of its cast and fails to provide the crowd-pleasing moments it so desperately needs. ...a crushingly useless bit of froth that struggles to deliver even the basest of pleasures. Scenes are perfunctory and flat, characters are thin and anonymous and dialogue is without insight or real humour.
