Filmsite's Greatest Funniest Movie Moments/Scenes (224 movies items)

"The many funny wry responses by cocaine-addicted film actress/daughter Suzanne Vale (Meryl Streep) - i.e., when told she wanted too much instant gratification, she mutters: "Instant gratification takes too long"; Suzanne's dream while having her stomach pumped of walking down a corridor with large photos of celebrities who had died of drug abuse - and Nancy Reagan walking towards her mouthing: "No!"; the character of Suzanne's domineering and pushy stage mother - an aging star and heavy drinker "

"For all the jagged, witty chatter -- and Streep and MacLaine do their tragicomic damnedest with it -- "Postcard" provides the most rudimentary and jury-rigged of outcomes. - Desson Thomson, Washington Post"

“Since Meryl Streep is my favorite actress, I definitely had to watch this flick at some point. Even though it is definitely not one of her best movies, I thought it was a decent satire.
