Diane Keaton and Pam Grier lead a cheer squad of retirees in the trailer for Poms

Diane Keaton, Jacki Weaver, and Pam Grier are here with a T-R-A-I-L-E-R for Poms, a soul-warming comedy about retiree cheerleaders and, you guessed it, friendship. Sure, it’ll probably hit the beats of just about any ragtag sports flick, but where else are you going to find such a deep bench of yesteryear’s best lady character actors? Cheers’ Rhea Perlman, for example, leads a supporting cast that also includes Celia Weston, Phyllis Somerville, and Carol Sutton, all of whom we can guarantee you’ve seen in a few dozen movies.

Poms sis-boom-bahs into theaters on May 1.
