So, I guess we’re just throwing Oscar nominations at Meryl Streep for any old role nowadays. Post-Adaptation (what a performance that was!), Streep’s Oscar nominations (and wins) are a mixed bag of gorgon-like overacting (August: Osage County), middling biographical film that left her with nothing to do (The Iron Lady), and thinly written comedic roles (The Devil Wears Prada).

Streep is great, no kidding. She is in th wake of making noble the egotistical ridicule of a woman that lives thanks to the sillyness oothers. So, where´s the sin. But it's a bit of seriousness disguising in comedy. The siphilis and the pain of a bad review, makes a great image: Meryl stumbling in the street.

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Stephen Frears and starring Meryl Streep, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, the whole thing really had some potential. Indeed, as displayed with ‘Ed Wood’, if you can make a fascinating movie about the worst director of all time, why not make a movie about the worst singer ever? Unfortunatel... read more

Unfortunately, I’m afraid I didn’t care much about the approach they have chosen. Indeed, while Ed Wood seemed to be a seriously incompetent film maker, however, he never believed he was a great director while, in this case, Florence Foster Jenkins was displayed as a delusional idiot. As a result, it was rather difficult to root for her. To make things worse, everyone in her inner circle, especially her” read more

"Exceptional comedy with Meryl Streep on fine comic form as a woman obsessed with music that she decides to perform for everyone, even though she cannot sing. Hugh Grant is superb as her husband who has to protect her from any upset and Simon Helberg almost steals the whole film as Florence's trusting pianist. Stephen Frears' delightful film has plenty of laughs as well as pathos. A real charmer."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- December 2016 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing It's often funny and heartfelt, with a pair of winning performances from Streep and Grant, but Florence Foster Jenkins is too tonally confused to really succeed wholly. Moments that seem like they're played for laughs comes across as flat, and vice versa, and, despite the strong acting, the characters are never really fleshed out beyond archetypes. It's pleasing enough, but misses the mark more often than it should. Monthly Wesley AwardsBest Costume Design- Cons"
