Based on the real-life ladies of the “Over 80 for Brady” fan club and written by Booksmart screenwriters Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins, this unexpected sports fantasy focuses on the misadventures of four long-time friends and diehard New England Patriots fans who head to the Super Bowl to see their idol Tom Brady play. With living legends Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field in the title roles, the comedic sparks fly. Already a huge hit among women of a certain age in Boston (it debuted at No. 2 at the box office opening weekend), the film leans in heavily to its absurdist humor and never shies away from the women’s healthy desires for love and adventure. It’s the rare road movie for a senior set that refuses to slow down.
“The star-studded affair is the kind of boisterous comedy that makes for a super girls’ night out, and that’s the not-so-subtle plan here: to bring groups of IRL girlfriends back to the theater for giggles.” — Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grownups
“It’s pure joy to see these women we have loved and grown with over the decades. They still give their considerable best to make us laugh, dream of our own adventures, and wish they could be around for another two centuries.” — Nell Minow, RogerEbert.com
