All Hail The Queens (Movie Thoughts: Queen Bees)

There’s nothing groundbreaking or unique in Michael Lembeck’s ‘Queen Bees.’ In fact, most everything in it feels familiar – you have seen all of this before. But there is something oddly satisfying about it. It’s the masterclass in acting being displayed by the cast that makes it not only watchable but immensely enjoyable. Most times, everyone – Ellen Burstyn, Ann Margaret, Jane Curtin and Loretta Devine – feels like they aren’t acting – they act so natural and comfortable in their roles. While the film won’t end up in the pantheon of the greatest songs of all time, it’s a nice enjoyable time at the movies.
