It’s great fun and genuinely moving! Ripcord is an uproarious comedy best described as Golden Girls meets The Odd Couple. When cantankerous Abby is forced to share her room in a retirement home with endlessly chipper Marilyn, a feud between the mismatched roommates results in a bet to determine who stays and who goes. Things quickly escalate into a game of practical jokes and one-upmanship, revealing hidden truths that neither wants exposed. Ripcord is loaded with moments of surprise, both wacky and more substantial — an utterly winning mix of hijinks and heart.
