I really, really enjoyed this movie. I didn’t honestly think I would but everyone did a fantastic job portraying what a week as “the Ricardos” looked like.

Wow! This movie is the most boring movie I have seen in a long time. I almost fell asleep during it. Lucy played by Kidman wasn't at all good. Kidman was way too old for her part and her acting job wasn't that great either! The actor that play Desi was also way too old also but his acting job was a bit better than Kidman's. I would not recommend this film a 100% total waste of money.

With some deft trimming, Being the Ricardos could be a fine HBO Sunday night movie “event,” as they used to be (or still are?) called. But as it is, this is less a cinematic thing and more an elaborate joke without a kicker. As Lucille Ball might say: waaaaaaaah.

However much you know about these people and this subject, Sorkin shines a light in dark or unjustly-ignored corners of their epic story. And he makes obvious the strain and burden of “Being the Ricardos” into a film that’s witty and bittersweet.

It is with a zippy touch and a number of questionable directorial choices—Sorkin is still a much better writer than director—as well as an immersive, pressure-cooker structure that is never less than enthralling, that Sorkin implants his aforesaid signature style into Being the Ricardos.
