Lots of decent singing and music yet it was also heartwarming to me. Basically we have a dead beat mom (Ricki breaks that down in the movie) who leaves her husband and children to pursue of dreams of becoming a rock star. Her husband remarries and his wife raises the three children. When one of the children’s life is in distress, Ricki, returns to hopefully help. I enjoyed the mother-daughter scenes. I also enjoyed seeing Rick Springfield on the big screen (they never sang “Jessie’s Girl).
