Another questionable entry in the "Did you know I can 🎶siiiiing🎶?" Streep canon!
What a weirdly polished mess by insanely talented people and the first time I've ever wondered if Meryl might've been a lil miscast? Imagine instead a Jamie Lee Curtis Ricki, a Susan Sarandon Ricki, heck even a Holly Hunter Ricki! Sounds fun right?
I truly don't know what this movie was supposed to be and it feels like neither do Diablo and Demme. It felt like fodder for future Meryl tribute reels where they show five second clips of her playing on stage and people at awards shows say "wow, she can even play a rocker!" The trailer is forever brain-burned because of this.
Big ups to…
