Think of this as Almost Famous, twenty years later, and you're almost there. In this easygoin' but uneven comedy, Goldie Hawn plays a washed-up rock 'n' roll hanger-on who clings to the glory daze she had with gal-pal Susan Sarandon. Hawn relishes those backstage memories, while Sarandon has taken on the persona of an uptight, suburban soccer-mom.
Strapped for cash, Hawn shows up at Sarandon's door, eventually injecting some groupie therapy into her hum-drum homelife. (Zany, Odd Couple-y situations follow, natch.) A subplot with Geoffrey Rush sticks out worse than a Kenny G fan at a Metallica show. But Sarandon pulls off the PTA-parent bit just fine, and Hawn's Banger-up role is some of her funniest stuff in years. She alone almost makes it worth sticking around for this encore performance.
