Synopsis

As Martha (Diane Keaton) begins to make friends in her new retirement community, her new bestie, Sheryl (Jacki Weaver), encourages her to achieve a long-lost dream of becoming a cheerleader.

Together, they start a senior cheer club, recruit a group of other senior women, and set their sights on entering a competition. But when the only other seniors in the competition are high school seniors, the retirees realize they're going to have to give it their all.

  • 3 stars "The movie was cute and fun to watch. I wanted to give it 3.5 stars but couldn't so I gave it three."
  • 5 stars "After reading a couple of sour reviews, I almost didn't go see this. I'm so happy I decided to take a chance on it. I haven't laughed this hard in ages. I've never been a huge Diane Keaton fan, but in Poms she was memorable. Totally fulfilling as a comedy. Highly inspirational with the message of "It's never too late to live your dream." For the climactic scene, I was dancing in my seat!"
  • 1 star "Very disappointed in this movie. It wasn't what I expected. Diane Keaton was not on her game --- I don't know why she has an acting career at all after seeing her in this movie. It was boring and I was hoping for much more. My husband sighed through the entire movie. He didn't like it either and I felt badly about dragging him to see it. :("
