Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon star in the new DVD “The Banger Sisters.” Suzette (Hawn) is a former groupie working in a bar when she gets fired. Her whole world collapses.

Suzette has really never given up her hippie/groupie lifestyle. Now she is in a new world and has to deal with the realities of this present world. In order to cope, she wants to return to her hippie comfort zone, and what better way to do this than to hook up with her former fellow groupie Lavinia (Sarandon).

Suzette is in for a shock, because Lavinia has changed. Lavinia is no longer the free spirited hippie, but has settled in as the prim, proper wife of a successful businessman and the mother of two teenagers. Suzette and Lavinia used to be like peanut butter and jelly, now they are like oil and water.

Lavinia’s family however has no idea how wild their mother used to be. As a matter of fact, they think of her as quite the opposite. They have no idea until Suzette enters the picture and shakes things up.

The film is quite funny. When "Lavinia" becomes "liberated" again, she starts going back into drug abuse, drinking, wild partying and fantasizing about having sex with rock stars. The downside is that some viewers may see this film as promoting these values.

The DVD comes with quite a few extras, including a full-length audio commentary by the director, an HBO special about the film and a hilarious blooper feature. The dual sided DVD contains both the full screen as well as the widescreen version.
