Is It Any Good?
The considerable pleasures of watching Oscar-winners Susan Sarandon, Goldie Hawn, and Geoffrey Rush displaying all of their combined charm and talent are repeatedly tripped up by a lame script. It wastes not just its stars but also an enticing premise. Hawn is marvelous as Suzette, showings us not just Suzette's spirit but also her vulnerability. She also cares for Vinnie's troubled daughter and we see she's more than a careless party girl.
Sarandon and Rush are also marvelous, giving Vinnie and Harry vastly more interest than the script does. They are so good that the idiotic arbitrariness of the script doesn't leap off the screen the way it should. Some events seem to be thrown into the plot so that characters can react to them and then are just abandoned, and characters completely change their minds for no reason.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
