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 (279) | Top Critics (66)

This is by far the warmest and most engaging film we have seen from Sofia Coppola, whose films have always made great use of spaces and silences.

[The characters live] quite a privileged existence, but one that's quite a pleasure to watch.

Top Critic

There are worse sins than allowing a director to coast smoothly through her favourite moves.

February 15, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

For a while, the film teeters on the brink of sitcom territory, but rescues itself by introducing a degree of complexity in the proceedings.

December 16, 2020 | Full Review…

This film is the slightest story Coppola has ever produced; it only brushes up against deeper insights during its brief running time. But the movie offers such a rush of unintentional catharsis and pure diversion that its flaws are easy to forgive.

December 3, 2020 | Full Review…

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.
