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

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.

Lohan acts out in muddled mother-daughter comedy.

Rarely awful, Garry Marshall's films consistently exhibit a veneer of banality, and Georgia Rule is no exception.

Since when did sexual abuse find its way into a comedy?I guess when it's part of a screenplay written by Mark Andrus and directed by Garry Marshall ("Pretty Woman").

Careless and predictable, Georgia Rule offers up the abuse victim's "sexy" acting out as alternately beguiling and blameworthy.

[An] unruly, often bracing misfire.

The subject matter in Georgia Rule--sexual abuse and alcoholism, for starters--lends itself to drama, but Garry Marshall's tone deaf direction and Mark Andrus' sloppy script play it as comedy.

The only people who would be attracted to actually watching this film aren't going to be able to watch it anyway.

Spirituality and Practice
May 17, 2007
A family drama that flies all over the place and does not do justice to the serious ethical issues it raises.

May 17, 2007's ultimately difficult not to be drawn into the soap opera-ish exploits of the central characters.

If there's not a dry eye in the house when Lilly and Rachel finally hug, it's only because audiences will have cleared out by that point.

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.

Does anybody really want to see a quirky incest comedy? Yuck.

Georgia Rule isn't a bad movie. It's several bad movies in one, with a good movie trying to get out.

It may not be good news for casting agents and some directors, but Lohan is the real deal. She can act.
