Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An innocent comic exercise, fueled more on charm than titillation."
‑ Hap Erstein, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Calendar Girls will make your day."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Charming, feel-good flick. Most teens won't care."
‑ Beth Pratt, Common Sense Media
"...uncomfortably familiar and thoroughly predictable..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Though the last act is formulaic (...) this film has everything we have come to expect from a British feel-good comedy."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij,
"Amiable enough as a frothy entertainment, with darker overtones rendered with emotional effectiveness."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"A breezy British comedy reminiscent of The Full Monty."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"A rather conventional comedy, but it works with honor and spirit."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Tampoco hay que ponerse demasiado exigente; (...) la película tiene su gracia y cumple con casi todo lo que promete."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
" affable, amusing, and highly diverting piece of typical British whimsy. That all of it really happened is almost beside the point but charming in itself."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Sentimental and eccentric."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Tries to be both funny and touching and and isn't enough of either."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Nude and loving it."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"'They dropped everything for a good cause' would seem to refer more to the filmmakers than the gutsy, middle-aged women shedding their clothes for a hospital couch."
‑ David N. Butterworth, Movie Boeuf
"Although the material is somewhat slight, Mirren and her cohorts give it weight and verve."
‑ Kent Turner,
