More Info:
  • Ty Burr

    Because Demme genuinely likes people and is interested in them, Ricki and the Flash feels like “Stella Dallas” as remade by Jean Renoir — it’s a humanist suburban fable.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    If you’re wondering whether you’ll believe Streep is a convincing rock musician, please. It’s Meryl Streep here. She sounds like she’s ready to open for Bruce Springsteen.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    A movie that gives Streep her most emotionally blocked character in years, without caricature.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Though this is the cinematic equivalent of an album of cover tunes by artists who have created much more dazzling original work, it’s a sweet, smart and funny confection.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It's an entertaining diversion - a good way to pass a couple of hours as late summer evenings lengthen - but not much more.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Quite a few filmgoers lament the shortage of movies for adults. Ricki and the Flash goes against that trend with rock ’n’ roll attitude.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Ricki And The Flash is a movie of things that may have been done better earlier — sometimes by Demme himself — but which are done all too rarely nowadays, which makes it feel both retro and refreshing.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    When Ricki and the Flash pierces its conventional trajectory with music, it gets more interesting. But the fluff surrounding it holds together well enough.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • John Hazelton

    A breezy but touching dysfunctional family dramedy, with real heart and some genuine musical soul.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Diablo Cody, both Oscar winners, have made far better films. Still, Ricki raises smart questions about why a mother’s musical ambitions are so much more selfish than, say, seven-time dad Mick Jagger’s.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tina Hassannia

    Regardless of its flimsy emotional interior, Ricki is a worthy addition in this year’s growing canon of strong female-centred films.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Although sweet and likable, Ricki and the Flash pulls too many punches to qualify as cathartic or even memorable. Instead, it’s a crowd-pleaser every bit as calculated and earnestly defanged as a Golden Oldies bus-and-truck tour.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    Director Jonathan Demme grasps the well of feeling of Diablo Cody's script and eventually harnesses it in his own image.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Streep is positively effervescent in the part, sassy and in good voice (the acoustic Jenny Lewis cover is spot-on). And for all its overly-familiar notes, Ricki and the Flash rarely seems out-of-tune.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The screenplay doesn't lack for memorable zingers, and thanks to Cody's script and Streep's performance, Ricki emerges as a complex, self-contradictory person (even if most of the supporting characters don't).

    Slate Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Demme's film plays out like a catnapping afternoon dream. We recognize the world, yet the logic is screwy.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Ricki and the Flash’s emotional intensity creeps up on you, and it’s all due to the performances. Everyone’s sympathetic, everyone’s got depth.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Even with its well-observed moments, the movie’s nonmusical interactions, whether reaching for laughs or poignancy, too often feel flat and forced.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    This is a shaggy, easily distractible film that consistently defies expectations to both charming and baffling effect.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Strutting around for most of the film in her leather rocker duds, Streep’s Ricki Rendazzo is almost as much of a concoction as her witch in Into the Woods. She wears her uniform as a taunt and also as a way of defining herself. She’s a woman out of time – a superannuated hippie.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    A classic, and classically lamentable, good-news/bad news proposition. In the good news department, it’s largely a sturdy, enjoyable domestic comedy drama.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Finally - and the news should really come as a relief - here is a role Streep should not have tried, in a movie that should not have been made.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Ricki’s attitudes, and their place in the family and the society she inhabits, are the most interesting part of the movie, or at least they would be if Ms. Cody and Mr. Demme were not so weirdly conflict-averse.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    As an actor, Meryl Streep is incapable of making false moves. That doesn't mean she's incapable of making false movies.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Ricki and the Flash is a sour movie masquerading as something more cheerful. In that attempted deception the film is both helped and hindered by an indispensable performance by star Meryl Streep.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    If only Streep would have put down the microphone and let Springfield sing “Jessie’s Girl,” Ricki and the Flash might have had half a chance.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It helps that Kevin Kline excels as Ricki's ex, and Mamie Gummer, Streep's real-life daughter, imbues the fictional version with rare grit and grace. Otherwise, too many wrong notes.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Why does this film, with so many first-rate artists in its corner, not quite work? Partly it's a matter of style, but mostly it's because the script is made of tin.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The movie itself seems equally divided between the sensibilities of hyperverbal writer Diablo Cody and music-centric director Jonathan Demme, and ends up falling into a muddy gap between the two.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    Ricki And the Flash is about mistakes, regrets, and of course, redemption, but all of it feels a little too neat, familiar and convenient even if no one’s quite belting out “Kumbaya” by the end.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Sorry. The sight of the 66-year-old Streep gyrating her way through "Wooly Bully" has a way of blocking out rational thought. It's frightening but temporary, like a bad dream. Or this movie.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    This is a talented cast working for a talented director in a film that never reaches the heights it should have.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Seeking spontaneity and release for her character, Ms. Streep gets stuck in a laboriousness that I don’t want to belabor, since her efforts are gallant — she does her own singing and playing — and there are fleeting moments of real fun. Still, it’s hard not to wonder why so much in the movie went so wrong.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The story here, like a lot of bar bands, goes loud to cover up mediocrity. When Streep sings, though, so does the film.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    The music so wholly engulfs the second half of the film, there’s no room left to expand on characters that feel less than lived-in or on the film’s more ambitious ideas.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    It’s fine to forfeit elements like stakes or suspense for a character piece, but when the characters are this vague, there’s nothing on which to hang your hat (or headband, for that matter).
