Customer Reviews

Great acting with Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine.
G. Reid
As for the writing, it is excellent and witty and cerebral and dramatic, and it is all the more evident with all the incredible actors making the words their own.

Talk about comedy with meaning - this movie has it all!

4.5 stars. The best thing about this DVD, besides the great script and fantastic cast of fine actors, is the price. Brand new, this DVD is under ten dollars?! I should write this review emphasizing that fact alone. As for the writing, it is excellent and witty and cerebral and dramatic, and it is all the more evident with all the incredible actors making the words their own. This exceptional cast includes former Oscar-winners Meryl Streep, Shirley MacLaine, Gene Hackman, and Richard Dreyfuss. Dennis Quaid, Rob Reiner, and Annette Bening also have good performances here and are worth mentioning. But the finest actor in this film is Meryl Streep, with yet another Oscar-nominated performance, this time showing great comedic timing with hilarious expressions and delivering her dialogue with impeccable precision. I'll stop now, before I wax rhapsodic. The script is sharp and intelligent, the acting is superb all around, and the price for this DVD is amazing! Thank you.

What a revelation. I never knew what a movie could be until this film. Sweet, sentimental, dramatic, heart-wrenching and fall-down funny all in one movie. Meryl Streep shines and is more accessible than ever before. Shirley MacLaine is luminous as ever. Mary Wickes (Grandma) is hilarious and ended a wonderful career with this and "Sister Act," forever cementing herself as a 20th century fixture. Robin Bartlett (Aretha) is also a delight. A wonderfully written and awesomely acted story. Highest of recommendations for one and all, especially anyone who's interested in the "behind the scenes" aspect of Hollywood.

Great cinematic rendition of Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel with wonderful performances from Shirley MacLaine as the aging screen queen and Meryl Streep as her star-druggie daughter. The cameos are wonderful...Richard Dreyfuss as the doc who pumps Streep's stomach?! Gene Hackman as Streep's suffering director...the list goes on. The "bad" thing is that we're left with one big unanswered question - when is Meryl Streep going to record a real album? Her voice is incredible! Fun, funny, and all too true - this one's a winner.

This movie has so many great lines in it that you'll have to see it five times to get them all. The great thing is that you'll WANT to see it five times. Meryl Streep is unbelievably good in this movie, yet Annette Bening steals a great scene from her with a cameo that made her famous. The book was brilliant and redundant and confusing all at once, but this movie is brilliant and nothing else. Don't miss this one!

Shirley Maclaine & Meryl Streep were both nominated for Oscars with this movie. Neither won; but they should have! The chemistry Streep & Maclaine have is pure magic and they are so totally synergetic that you believe they are mother & daughter and you end the movie wishing this were a weekly show just about them and their quirky existance in Hollywood. The small parts by Gene Hackman & Dennis Quaid are priceless. If you want laughs, tears, and GREAT acting then spend an evening curled up with Postcards from the Edge!

It takes a pretty spectacular person to take a difficult childhood, drug addictions, and relationships gone wrong, and turn all that into a screenplay that is funny and witty. That's exactly what Carrie Fisher did in Postcards from the Edge, a must-see movie. And don't miss Fisher's comments in the DVD, in which she shows how witty and brutally honest she is.

This movie was such a refreshing change for Meryl Streep. She truly shined in a brillant comedic performance as Suzanne Vale, a middle-aged movie actress struggling with drug addiction, her relationship with her aloof mother (Shirley MacLaine) and the challenges of day to day life. What impressed me the most about Meryl Streep is that you get to see her as a normal, frumpy woman. Basically, someone you could relate to and sympathize with. Finally, you get a chance to see Meryl in a film that doesn't take place in some era/period with extravagant costumes and accents. Ofcourse, many of you already know that this film is based on actress, Carrie Fisher's, bestselling book of the same name. The dialogue is so witty and fresh that I envy all the actors who got to opportunity to bring the words to life. One of my favourite scenes is between Suzanne and her mother on the staircase. In the scene, Suzanne confronts her mother about giving her sleeping pills when she was a child. She also confronts her about holding her back. A few memorable lines: "You don't want me to be a singer. You're the singer, you're the performer. I can't possible compete with you. What if somebody won ? You want me to do well, just not better than you." I love that scene. It even gets more histerical when her mother defends herself about the "birthday party incident". A memorable line: "I did not lift my skirt. IT TWIRLED UP !!". Then the scene of reconciliation in the hospital. Some memorable lines: "You know what dear ? I think I'm jealous of you. And that is because it being your turn and all. And I find it difficult to face that my time is almost up." Both of the Oscar-winning actresses bring such life and energy to their characters.Read more ›
