Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - Rounding out the whimsy is Cosme McMoon (Simon Helberg, Big Bang Theory) who gets hired as Jenkins' pianist, unaware at first of her "unique" talent. Once again Florence is able to buy someone's loyalty, and yet again, Mr. McMoon genuinely wishes to be in her good graces over and above his generous salary, as Florence's love of music and life is simply infectious.

Sober Film Critic James Brown80 - It takes someone this good in order to purposefully be that bad, and there's no one better on the big screen than cinematic legend Meryl Streep.

Rob from GuysFilmQuest70 - Not much in the way of an emotional hook, nor enough tension, nor comedy. Decent performances but not great.
Minnesota Man60 - Like it's subject, slightly off-key.
