Trivia Ricki and the Flash

Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer are also mother and daughter in real life. The guitar that Greg pawns is owned in the real life by the actor and singer who plays that part, Rick Springfield, and he composed his famous hit 'Jessie's Girl' with it. 'Ricki' is the third collaboration in the big screen between Meryl Streep and Mamie Gummer, who are mother and daughter. We've seen them before in 'Heartburn', Gummer's debut, and 'Evening'.
