On The Rocks
Regissør: Sofia Coppola
(USA)

DRAMA COMEDY / Director Sofia Coppola and actress Bill Murray were successful Lost in Translation and are now reunited in On The Rocks, in which Murray portrays a skirt hunter who is never far from a dry martini.

"On the rocks" means undiluted whiskey with ice cubes, but "on the rocks" is also a term used to describe a marriage that is about to break. Laura (Rashida Jones) suspects husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) of cheating on a colleague and calls her father Felix (Bill Murray) for help. The father does not stagnate the daughter's concern, but rather happy spirits on the fire. It doesn't take much persuasion before Laura joins him on a raucous search for evidence of Dean's infidelity.

Bill Murray, known from box office successes as among others Ghostbusters (1984) and Groundhog Day (1993), got a new lease on life in Coppolas Lost in Translation (2003). IN On The Rocks he plays a notorious womanizer who believes that all men are like him, including his daughter's spouse. Felix's view of women and men and this type of man is perceived as somewhat prehistoric in 2020, but is finely balanced by Murray, who portrays his casanova and art broker role brilliantly and extremely entertainingly: "I think I'm getting deaf, but only for women's voices », Is just one of many pointed statements from the skirt hunter and the world man with a prehistoric view of women.
