Pleasant diversion

By Baxterman
A charming story, well acted - Sarandon is her usual delightful self and the supporting cast does well as well. Not what will be considered one of her top performances but she does a good job of...

Boring

By cbbm
If you want interesting family interaction addressing both serious and funny subjects, watch Grace & Frankie on Netflix. As much as I love all the actors in this movie, it really fell short in the...

The Meddler

By ArtHouseGuy65
A very funny, heartwarming well written film. Sarandon was fabulous as usual....

So good!

By nmensah976
What a great, quirky story! Every gal should see this (and support bad*** female filmmakers like Lorene Scafaria)-- with or without her mother!...

Great acting in the Meddler

By skeirnwhiting
Sarandon is great. Believable story, heartwarming....

Not the best movie

By karenvirgo
I really love Susan Sarandon. However, this is not one of her best pictures. I was expecting a lot more funny and it just wasn't. It was way to long also. Even though it was only an hour and 40...

Terrible title and terrible movie

By brabiner
Poorly produced and directed. Susan Sarandon was awful with her supposed Brooklyn accent. Plot needed tightening, too. Did not enjoy this movie....

A definite chick flick

By rjgagliano
Had some humorous parts but was a bit drug out. Worth seeing as long as you know going in it is a total chick flick. Susan Sarandon was good as a controlling wandering lonely widow....

It's great. See it.

By michele426
IT makes you laugh. It makes you cry. What could have been a plain, sappy movie had a great script and wonderful acting. Uncomplicated but touching movie. I loved it!...

Good acting

By prfan
Although I felt the acting performances were generally very good, this film had little emotional impact for me. There were any number of interesting characters, but the storyline was oddly contrived...
