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.
USA, 2020, 96 minutes, Rated R, Directed by Sofia Coppola
“Bill Murray in fine form helps turn Sofia Coppola's sparkling new film and ode to the NYC we knew and love into the comedy of the year.”– Pete Hammond, DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD DAILY
“’On the Rocks’ turns into a boozy humanistic hang-out caper movie, one that's light-spirited and compelling, mordantly alive to the ins and outs of marriage, and a winning showcase for Murray's aging-like-fine-whisky brand of world-weary deviltry.”– Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
“In the pantheon of perfect Bill Murray roles – ‘Caddyshack,’ ‘Groundhog Day,’ ‘Lost In Translation’ - his smooth-talking character in the new comedy ‘On The Rocks’ ranks as one of the best.”– Johnny Oleksinski, THE NEW YORK POST
“It's a mature, economical effort that harkens back to some of the wistful, warm, airy feelings of ‘Lost In Translation,’ but revisits some of the surrogate father/daughter, mentor/protégé ideas of that film with more grown-up sensibilities and concerns.”– Rodrigo Perez, THE PLAYLIST
“Coppola has a lot of fun exploring the conflict between father-daughter affection and sharp attitudinal divides, aided immeasurably by the entertaining chemistry between Jones and Murray.”– David Rooney, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Bill Murray gives yet another great performance.”– Matt Singer, SCREEN CRUSH
