Critic Consensus: While the cast is something to cheer about, Poms squanders its talented stars on a clichéd comedy that disrespects the demographic it's trying to celebrate.

Critic Reviews for Poms
Director Zara Hayes, to her credit, mixes some dark humor and blistering social commentary into this otherwise frothy cocktail of pratfalls and platitudes.
Why worry about dying when you can spend your time dancing? Although "Poms" is an imperfect package, one can't help but take the message to heart.
The main cast does far better than the script in conveying both a sense of sisterhood, and the exquisite poignancy of the friendships that bloom as the end of life approaches.
Look, films need conflict, otherwise there's nothing for the characters to do. "Poms" never comes up with anything worthwhile to fight against, let alone cheer.
Even by the elastic standards of mass-market escapist trifles the creators of POMS might consider the challenges of growing old and confronting death without infantilizing both characters and audience.
