‘Ricki and the Flash,’ the latest star vehicle for perfect human Meryl Streep, is about to hit theaters which means reviews are pouring in. Has Lady Streep just secured herself another Oscar or is the flick a bunch of fluff?
In Ricki and the Flash, which opens officially on Aug. 7, Ricki Rendazzo (Meryl Streep) revisits the life and family she once left behind in pursuit of a career in rock and roll. However, her ex-husband (Kevin Kline) and children (one of whom is played by Meryl’s real-life daughter, Mamie Gummer) are hardly jumping at the opportunity to accept the woman who abandoned them back into their lives. It’s a story which could be a poignant commentary on the reconciliation of family with pursuing one’s dreams, or one which could easily ricochet into dramatized cliche. Which is it? Check out some reviews!

Adam Brody, Kristen’s ‘In the Land of Women’ costar, says the actress needs to stop whining all the time or just find another job!
Kristen Stewart may be one of the most sought after and hounded celebrities around these days, but she is not getting an sympathy from former costar Adam Brody! Adam gave an interview to Diablo Cody for her new online talk show, Red Band Trailer, where he said of Kristen’s notorious complaining: “It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity.

It’s like, quit … you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like if it’s that much of a problem … there’s the door.” Wow!
