On the Rocks could have been a downer yet there was something simple and whimsical about its New York City setting. Sometimes we let our worst fears get to us and that's certainly at play, which brings this father/daughter relationship closer together.

It's a little zany, a little blue, emotionally jagged, adventurously all over the place.

The performances of Rashida Jones and [Bill] Murray are the best parts of what could have been a very pedestrian movie. [It's] very much in the mold of a Woody Allen film ... because the movie wants to be about how privileged neurotics need love too.

For this lonely moment, On the Rocks feels right.

It's as light as a petite madeleine, but who doesn't want a tour of Manhattan's swankiest spots with roué Bill Murray at the wheel?

In the last 20 years, when Murray is funny in a movie it's usually a cameo. This is a whole movie with Murray being funny and charming, not in an over the top way like his '80s movies, but a confirmation that he's still got it.

Finally, a great role for [Rashida Jones]. [Full review in Spanish]

It's a pleasant place to spend 90 minutes, and Jones and Murray give us fun characters to while away that time with.

The undeniable dad/daughter chemistry between the great Bill Murray and a grand Rashida Jones saves a meager Sofia Coppola film that kind of cheats on the idea of infidelity.

Bill Murray makes it work... Murray walks around carrying his own bon vivant spotlight. He's the life of the party, but with actorly gravitas.
October 23, 2020
The lightness of On the Rocks is the very thing that lifts it.

On the Rocks may be too heavy for a date night, but not substantial enough to leave a lasting impression
October 23, 2020
As with all of Coppola's pictures, it's the layering of details that counts, the accretion of sly but not minor observations that come to form the whole, like the stippled strokes of a Seurat painting.

A love letter to Manhattan, to music, to fathers and daughters, and to love itself.
October 23, 2020
I'd be hard pressed to think of another film where a director had fashioned a part so attuned to the strengths, stylings and idiosyncrasies of one performer as is the case in Sofia Coppola's "On the Rocks."
October 22, 2020
While it's a slow-moving film with a feeling of tying things up too neatly and quickly at the end, Jones and Murray create an intricate story of how our past influences our future.
October 22, 2020
Well-shot, but vapid, meandering, dishonest and cowardly. Compared to the far more honest, moving and profound 45 Years or the witty, warm and wise Shirley Valentine, On the Rocks falls flat and disappoints.
October 22, 2020
This simple yet unpredictable story plays to Murray's & Jones's strengths, and Coppola avoids any dull moments, even while creating meaningful small ones again and again.
October 22, 2020
I loved every single element about On The Rocks @appletvplus and would watch it a million times over just for Bill Murray, Rashida Jones and Marlon Wayans, Sofia Coppola's writing and directing is on point...always!

As a tight and cathartic story of fraught relationships - both parental and marital - On the Rocks tackles its unpleasant themes with a surprising sense of fun.
