    Apologies if there's already a thread for this movie, but I did a few searches and didn't find anything. Bit shook, as I thought it would go down very well on Moopy(so just delete this if there's already a thread)! It's probably my favourite film of all-time in terms of sheer amount of times I've seen it. It's like my comfort blanket...but I think it's also a genuinely fantastic wee film. The three ladies are absolutely wonderful, and Dabney Coleman and Elizabeth Wilson are hilarious. The script is wonderful and the whole thing is just a complete JOY. Any other fans in here?

    Some of my favourite lines!

    Roz: Here, Violet, you can put this up on the bulletin board.
    Violet: Thanks, Roz, I know just where to stick it.

    Roz: Did you get my memo?
    Violet: I did, Roz. I tore right through it.

    Doralee Rhodes: Well, I say we hire a couple'a wranglers to go upstairs and beat the shit out of him.

    I do love it, but the fantasy sequences go on for a bit too long and are quite unnecessary.

    I saw the stage show in the West End last year which was fantastic and much better than expected.

    Well it's an iconic classic. 10/10 of course and no other score is valid.

    I’ve been on an 80s movie run in lockdown and it’s been quite the ride. I always look at the 80s iconic movies as a time when Hollywood took a fair bit of liberty with reality, not worrying about whether things make sense in order to produce the most fun movie possible. Almost the opposite these days. So many I hadn’t seen in years and I’ve been surprised by how MENTAL the story gets in most of them, not least this one. I didn’t recall how far fetched the kidnapping got :D but bags of fun and interesting seeing Grace and Frankie together in their youth

    I hope the whole audience yelled "Hi Louise!" when she made her entrance.
