    THAT SCENE WHERE SUSAN SARANDON WOLFS DOWN LIKE A LITERAL WHOLE BAG OF POT TO AVOID GETTING CAUGHT BY CAMPUS SECURITY AND THEN SAYS "MY HANDS ARE ... SO LOUD" TO JK SIMMONS JUST BEFORE SQUEAKILY INFORMING HIM THAT SHE CANNOT IN FACT DRIVE HIS MOTORCYCLE TRANSFORMED ME AS A PERSON I AM TRANSFORMED THIS IS MY FINAL FORM

  • ★★★½ review by Brandon Hart on Letterboxd

    This is "moms are cool" the movie & it's just great, lovable, moving, all of that.

    The part when the old woman in the hospital made a phone call wrecked me.

    It made me forget that I accidentally ran over a family of ducks on the way to the theater (which REALLY wrecked me, okay).

    Funny, charming, poignant, well-acted, and surprisingly very genuine both in its sweetness and in its raw emotion, The Meddler is a solid sophomore directorial effort from Lorene Scafaria featuring one of Susan Sarandon's best performances.

  • ★★★½ review by Jordan Rowe on Letterboxd

    "The Meddler" is a sweet, inoffensive film with genuine laughs, realistic emotion, and terrific performances, anchored by the always-lovely Susan Sarandon.
