The Meddler (2015/Sony DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C+ Film: C+

The Meddler (2015) is a charming new coming of age romantic comedy from filmmaker Loren Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World) that stars Susan Sarandon and Rose Byrne - who are fantastic as an onscreen Mother and Father. The film also stars Jason Ritter and J.K. Simmons.

A year after the death of her husband, Marnie (Sarandon) moves near The Grove in Los Angeles to be close to her Screenwriter Daughter Lori (Byrne). Rich with the money that her husband left her and finding herself with too much time on her hands, Marnie begins to meddle in her daughter's business a bit too much by constantly contacting her and interfering with her love life, even though she means well and is in many ways still finding herself. When Lori ends up going out of town to work on a film, Marnie is left to her own devices and decides to help one use her fortune to help others. Marnie soon meets an ex cop named Zipper (Simmons), who changes her life and rekindled her faith in love.

Presented in high definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track the film look and sounds great for DVD, but (as usual) would obviously be benefited by high definition.

Special Features include...

The Making of The Meddler

A good chick film, The Meddler is one to watch if you're in a romantic mood.
