While her house undergoes repairs, fiercely independent senior Helen (Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn) reluctantly moves into a nearby retirement community - just temporarily. Once at Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters feisty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a group of bullying "mean girls" that reminds her of high school and has her yearning to go home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it's never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love. A heartwarming and humorous look at life's second act, Queen Bees is inspired by a true story also starring James Caan, Ann-Margret, Jane Curtin, Christopher Lloyd and Loretta Devine.

Retiree romcom has wine, weed, and wink-wink humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Queen Bees is a romcom about getting out of your comfort zone, even if that zone is your own home. The cast is loaded with actors who will likely be familiar to older viewers -- including Ellen Burstyn, James Caan, Jane Curtin, Loretta Devine, Ann-Margret, and Christopher Lloyd -- and the content is better suited for adults than for family movie night. The residents at Pine Grove Senior Community are a randy bunch, and while no one uses any specific words, there's plenty of innuendo and some sexual references. There's also a barely clothed male fitness instructor who plays along with being objectified by the women in his class. The main character, Helen (Burstyn), is above it all in many regards, including limiting herself to one glass of wine. But she smokes pot with a friend, which is shown as leading to fun times and establishing a stronger bond. Language mostly takes the form of name-calling ("bitch," "a--hole").
