Nichols' version of Carrie Fisher's memoir of a drug-addicted actress (well played by Meryl Streep), and her troubled bond with her famous mother (inspired by mom Debbie Reynolds) is sleek, shallow and sporadically entertaining.

There's not much depth here, but Nichols does a fine job with the surface effects, and the wisecracks keep coming.

Yet further proof that Hollywood makes its best films about what it knows best--making films in Hollywood.

In this era of postverbal cinema, Postcards proves that movie dialogue can still carry the sting, heft and meaning of the finest old romantic comedy.

Packs a fair amount of emotional wallop in its dark-hued comic take on a chemically dependent Hollywood mother and daughter.

Fisher's intelligence and humour turn what might have been movie brat indulgence into something much sharper and involving.

''Postcards From the Edge'' is a vehicle, but it's a custom-built Rolls.
