TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Comedic and dramatic in all the wrong places, Georgia Rule is a confused dramedy that wastes the talents of its fine cast.

Critic Reviews for Georgia Rule

All Critics (120) | Top Critics (36)

The confused script trades in such heavy topics as alcoholism and child sexual abuse, but every dramatic scene plays like one of those schmaltzy Happy Days moments that inevitably drew a big 'Awwwwww!' from the studio audience.

Time for a new book by Jane Fonda, and this time I expect a full chapter on how she got snookered into doing Georgia Rule.

Oh Lindsay Lohan, where has your talent gone?

Full Review… | August 23, 2008

A film that's an utterly horrid exploitation of [star Lindsay] Lohan...

Cinema Crazed

The kind of film your parents will cite as the reason they don't go to movies anymore.

Lohan acts out in muddled mother-daughter comedy.

WASN'T INTERESTED IN SEEING THIS MOVIE, BUT I HAPPEND TO COME ACROSSED IT ON T.V. ON A BORING SUNDAY NIGHT. THE TRUTH IS I HAD NO DESIRE TO SEE THIS MOVIE BECAUSE IT STARS LINDSAY LOHAN. NOT A BIG FAN, BUT WHEN SHE TRYS, SHE CAN ACT. THIS MOVIE THOUGH WASN'T WATCHED BY MANY BECAUSE OF ALL THE HYPE IT WAS GETTING ABOUT LOHAN BEING LATE, AND SO AND SO ON. SO IT WAS PRETTY MUCH BEING TREATED LIKE IT HAD THE GIGLI DESEASE. I DIDN'T WATCH IT THINKING IT WAS GOING TO BE GOOD. I WAS SORTA RIGHT AND WRONG. IT WASN'T NEARLY AS BAD AS IT WAS MADE OUT TO BE. IT HAD AN INTERESTING STORY LINE. WASN'T REALLY CARRIED OUT THAT WELL. FELICITY HUFFMAN WAS EXCELLENT IN HER ROLE. LOVE JANE FONDA. LINDSAY... WELL SHE WAS OK. JUST SEEMED LIKE SHE WASN'T REALLY INTO HER CHARACTER. WHICH REALLY WOULD HAVE CHANGED THE WHOLE FEELING ON THE MAJOR ISSUE THIS MOVIE WAS ABOUT. I WOULD RECOMMEND PEOPLE TO SEE THIS, CAUSE IN THE MIX OF IT ALL THERE IS A SOME TOUCHY THINGS THEY ARE TRYING DESPERATELY TO ADDRESS. REALLY COULD HAVE BEEN DONE BETTER WITH A DIFFERENT ACTRESS. LINDSAY JUST DIDN'T DO HER CHARACTER JUSTICE. JUST MEDIOCRE ACTING FROM HER.
