    I was honestly quite disappointed with this movie. The script lacked the clever wit that we've come to associate with Diablo Cody's work. I am a huge Meryl Streep fan, so it honestly pains me to say that I thought her portrayal of Ricki/Linda was honestly a little forced. This role just did not sit well for her. I overall thought that this movie was grappling with too many ideas and trying to be too many things at once, leaving the viewer with half-formed spurts of storylines. Too much time was spent on musical numbers and not enough was given to developing an emotional connection between the characters and the audience. 2 years 2 months ago

    The problem with this movie is that when we hear it was written by Diablo Cody we expect something that would shock the most open-minded people. Instead, we get this family drama about lousy parenting that adds nothing new to the world apart from a few clever lines (operative word "few"). However, I have a soft spot for selfish and childish parents who leave their children behind to "begin a new life" and "find themselves", only to be even more unhappy with their half lives. Meryl Streep is not bad at all, ok, not the film she will be remembered for, but good enough. Mamie Gummer is surprisingly good (all that anger!) and of course being Meryl's real daughter makes their scenes together even more believable. I also have to mention Ben Platt, who in this film shows that there are no small roles but small actors. I'd say don't go out of your way to watch this film, but don't blacklist it either. 1 year 4 months ago
