Movie Review: Poms

The problem with the new movie “Poms” starring Diane Keaton is it tries to combine a depressing story of a woman dying of cancer with a comedy about older women competing in a cheerleader competition. The cheerleader practicing and issues along the way are the majority of this movie and way too boring to fill two long hours. The part about the main character, played by Diane Keaton, dying of cancer ruins any chance of the cheerleader part of the story, which is supposed to be uplifting, from working at any level.

This movie was not very bad, but not good either and the story is so minimal I was surprised it was made into a movie. I agree with the low Rotten Tomatoes ratings for this film at 31%, and I cannot recommend it.
