Georgia Rule (2007)
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
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.
Director Garry Marshall has too much confidence that he can match the weighty issues here with the light comedy. He can't. Or at least he can't with this cast.
The central problem with the movie isn't that it deals with several hot-button topics, but that it addresses them with a shocking lack of emotional honesty.
Georgia Rule doesn't make you feel good; it makes you queasy.
Audience Reviews for Georgia Rule
Jane Fonda's always worth watching but this movie is a mess.
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.
no-one should have to admit that theyve seen this... and i never will! .... uh i mean... i never will see it..yea
