Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    A charming, uncritical, often entertaining jumble, the documentary was written and directed by Leslie Zemeckis.

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    The women's outspoken commentaries prove consistently colorful and their long-ago stripteases -- feathers flying, tassels spinning -- still pack a sensual, sassy, what-the-hell punch.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    You hear some nostalgia, but with most of them you don't get the idea that if they had the chance they'd do it all again.
