This is a musical family drama starring Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline and Rick Springfield. The music is great.
Directed by Jonathan Demme the movie never overcomes the rather predictable plot, but it never dies either.
Meryl Streep fans (like me) will enjoy this just because she is in it, and she is excellent as always. My feeling, apart from that, is that if one is not free on a convenient evening, one could wait till this comes to DVD without stressing. I give it 6/10 … ok, maybe 7/10 if I am being generous.
