With the excellent Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine, it is definitely a feel-good type of comedy. There is nothing overtly special about this film - it is a rather simple success--utter failure--pick yourself up--and success again, type of story. However, the acting, especially by the two female leads (Streep and MacLaine), is just great, and they definitely are believable as celebrity mother and daughter. The storyline, as mentioned, is rather simple, but is underpinned by a deeper story of a cycle of vice that a family can go through and how it can lead to the deterioration of relations within the family, and possibly even lead to fatalities. Overall, this is a rather good film and definitely worth watching, but do not expect to be blown out of your shoes. Expand

A deep, often sad, look at the relationship of Mother and Daughter movie stars, disguised as a comedy. It works immensely and has us craving for more wit and grit from Streep and MacLaine.

Postcards from the Edge is well acted and well written. It's a little forgettable but it's still a good movie .
