RICKY AND THE FLASH….WORTH THE TICKET?

ricky

 

She warbled her way into Mama Mia…and now Meryl is bringing on her best rocking style in Ricky and the Flash. Ok we get it…you can sing, and quite well I might add.  At little bit was fine, enjoyed some of the cover band songs and then there were some weird ones and then it was just too much. Sort of like that hair-do with the three braids on one side that bugged me like a nasty itch. Too much I say.

In a nutshell , a rocker-wanna be who has limited success with a job as checker by day and chanteuse at night has to go home to the wealthy self-absorbed family that she left to pursue her dream.  She tries to repair the damaged relationship with her daughter but is shooed off when the second wife returns home. When her successful and likeable husband asks her why  she left , she tells him because it was her dream and you can’t have two dreams (meaning the family). Really Ricky? Her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer was great as the recently dumped, no filter daughter and as one might imagine, no one was thrilled to see Mom and her hard rocker persona.

The real gem of the show was Rick Springfield (Jessie’s Girl) who was a handsome, devoted tall-drink-of-water  boyfriend who sold his prized guitar to buy Ricky tickets  to be with her family. In one scene they were in bed sitting up with their “readers on” , and they kiss knocking them together. Ah the tender moment of being middle-aged.

Diablo Cody, who wrote the script, made sure there were plenty of dark bar scenes with quite an unusual collection of people and a constant reference to “being broke.” She likes to keep it “real” that one. A nod to her past as a stripper.

I would save your money. It’s marginal at best. Meryl, we know you can bring it home.  Just bring us home something better next time.

WORTH THE TICKET?

Aidan Turner in “Poldark.”

Biggest suprise on tv this summer was this nifty little British series called Poldark. And the beauty is it’s on PBS’s Masterpiece venue, which makes it free. I watched it quite by accident. But make no mistake this is a jewel. The photography alone is mesmerizing and the story is captivating. Doesn’t hurt that the handsome Captain Ross Poldark is Aiden Turner from the Hobbit.

Masterpiece knows what they’re doing. Another version of this story by Winston Graham aired 40 years ago and was so popular a whole other generation is having the privilege of seeing it with fresh eyes. It’s a story about Captain Poldark, a Redcoat from the Revolutionary War who comes home to find his family land in shambles and the woman he loves marrying his stuffy cousin.

The story lines , set on the rugged Cornwall coast , are full of drama, murder, love, deception, loyalty and betrayal. Do I have your attention? Watch it…it will probably be back on Netflix or reruns. It’s mesmerizing.

trainwreck

Now this was a clever new look at how romantic comedies are going to be from now on. It’s gritty, bold and in-your-face nasty. The leading lady is no Julia Roberts and the man of her dreams that she was totally unaware that she wanted is no sexy Richard Gere. But this is a modern love story ,people.  And no one tells how life really is better than Judd Apatow.

Amy Shumer, in case you didn’t know, is today’s comedy it girl. She is funny and a hot mess. You know her. That girl who has made the-walk-of-shame her very own. The girl who doesn’t want to fall in love or even commit to a night with a guy. But she unwittingly falls hard , as she fights it all the way.

You better not get embarrassed easily, because this one is as bawdy as they come. Add a touch of LeBron James as the BFF of Amy’s love interest and you have an interesting new look at the game of love.

I say it’s worth it. Your mother , however, will probably not agree.

to which we all sit down.

True, a new mistress now I chase.
SEXT: Dumping u

GRACE AND FRANKIE IS DEFINATELY BINGE-WORTHY

old grace and frankie

Netflix…you have once again set the bar for great tv binge watching. Grace and Frankie are two 70-year-old women who find out at a dinner that their husbands, who are law partners, are gay. And to top that off they plan to marry and for the last twenty years have had an affair. Wow. That’s one hell of a premise.

Underneath the shock of an abrupt life change and realization that everything you though you had was a fraud…these women seem familiar. Grace is the together svelte country-club wife who built her own company and gave it to her daughter when she decided to build her relationship back with her distant husband. Grace is the hippie-chick-pot smoking-earth Mama who teaches are to convicts and has a great relationship with her husband Sol, played masterfully by Sam Waterston. (loved him in Network).

There is hilarity, ageism moments, children issues and the impact of being alone. These women, who have never been friends, find solace in each other.  When Grace slips back into a relationship with one of her husbands best friends, Frankie reminds her that you shouldn’t pretend to like things just to please a man.

We see the new gay couple struggle through moments of their own, but who care, right? It’s the girls that get our empathy and attention. Fonda and Tomlin are delicious in this movie. In real life Tomlin is 80 and Fonda is 75. No old chicks have ever been handed roles like this. They are fantastic. If you are offended by the f-bomb, look past it. Because you’re gonna hear it a lot. I grew up in a cigarette filled news room, and it is often a go-to word I often regret.

Dive in ladies.You are gonna love it!!!! Marta Kauffman is one of the creators of Friends. This is just friends grown up ditched and deserted and yes….having the time of their lives…with all the baggage that comes with it.
