Storyline Heading
With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, an aging widow has happily relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be near her daughter.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - This mother-daughter-themed comedy/drama is squarely aimed at women, particularly older ones. Susan Sarandon fans will enjoy this big showcase, as will those of Rose Byrne, and while his role is fairly small, J.K. Simmons fans should enjoy his change of pace romantic role. Language, adult subject matter, and drug use makes the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent This is not remotely a "downer” movie, but it's not chirpy or coy, and it doesn't sugarcoat anything. Scafaria has made a kind, smart, special film. A lot of people are going to be surprised by how deeply this movie understands them. In its modest way, it has much to say about what it means to move through catastrophe, one step at a time.

NY Post Full Review
Good Susan Sarandon has one of her juiciest parts in years in Lorene Scafaria's comedy about an overbearing widow, which turns out to be far funnier and more charming than the synopsis suggests.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good ...a hilarious and heartfelt tribute to mothering in the sense of what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. he Meddler belongs to Sarandon, a famously no-bull actress who digs in deep, showing us how moms aren't one thing, they're all things. How else can they make you laugh from love and cry from crazy? The Meddler knows how. Listen up.

Rex Reed Full Review
Very Good Charming, insightful and funny, The Meddler takes familiar material (the mother from Hell and the daughter from Hunger) and infuses it with affectionate, slap-your-thigh humor.
