Ricki and the Flash is directed by Jonathan Demme, written by Diablo Cody and stars Kevin Kline and Meryl Streep. I was hoping the film wasn't as trite as the trailer looked, but it sorta is. Streep is one of the best actresses one the planet, she does an admirable job here. Yet, Ricki and the Flash still feels like an artless effort that's panders to the mainstream. Not terrible, but somewhat forgettable.
