[ # ] Rita Rocks her way on to Lifetime tonight!
October 20th, 2008 under Lifetime, Reviews

In “Rita Rocks,” Nicole Sullivan stars as Rita Clemens, an overworked wife and mother in the middle of a full-blown identity crisis — which includes trying to maintain romance with her husband Jay (Richard Ruccolo), juggling the demands of her nine-year-old daughter, Shannon (Kelly Gould), and disciplining her defiant teenage daughter Hallie (Natalie Dreyfuss) and her ever-present boyfriend Kip (Raviv Ullman). After being passed over for a promotion at work, Rita is at her wit’s end. In search of “youthful” Rita, she dusts off her old guitar and forms a garage band with her nosy postal carrier Patty (Tisha Campbell-Martin) and unemployed neighbor Owen (guest star Ian Gomez), in the hopes of putting that spark back in her life.

Lifetime who has had huge success with the drama Army Wives, is branching out to sitcoms tonight with Rita Rocks. Rita Rocks fills the hole the networks have left by not doing traditional sitcoms. It is funny and just has that good old family sitcom feel. You know with a married couple trying to make it work as they raise their 3 kids. Their oldest daughter is dating a loser who basically spends all his time at their house and is in Rita’s band! The show deals with all the same sitcom family problems that the other sitcoms have, but you know what that never grows old and they are always funny. The one thing that shocked me is Nicole Sullivan can really sing and the band is really good. I think I might have to go to a show taping just to hear them play!!!
So tune into Rita Rocks at 8:30p every night this week for a show that will make laugh out loud and boogie on down!!!
