AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: On the Rocks isn't as potent as its top-shelf ingredients might suggest, but the end result still goes down easy -- and offers high proof of Bill Murray's finely aged charm.

Movie Info

A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city-drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots. Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she's happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship.

Critic Reviews for On The Rocks

All Critics (237) | Top Critics (45)

In her best film in close to a decade, Sofia Coppola tries at long last to imagine some version of adulthood, in the most equivocal possible way.

October 30, 2020 | Full Review…

"On the Rocks" is perhaps more conventional and modest than Coppola's other films, but it's no less entertaining or profound.

October 30, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It is a very old-fashioned New York screwball comedy, but the details of the day in and day out existence of this family are so contemporary and feels so true.

October 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Relatively minor in the scheme of things, but Bill Murray... really runs with it.

October 23, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a little zany, a little blue, emotionally jagged, adventurously all over the place.

October 23, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

As with all of Coppola's pictures, it's the layering of details that counts, the accretion of sly but not minor observations that come to form the whole, like the stippled strokes of a Seurat painting.
