A sentence from the book I'm reading...
Lolly had always said that a Meryl Streep movie was as good as chicken soup, a best friend, a therapist, and a stiff drink."
I get the first three but... a stiff drink? That's debatable though I might place Plenty (1985) in that category.
So which of Meryl's movies are chicken soups, therapists, friends, and stiff drinks? Divvy them up in the comments or add your own simile.
