September 1, 2007
Molestation, alcoholism and the other problems this dysfunctional family experience would be better dealt with truthfully, rather than with these stereotypical characters.

The tone is so inconsistent that the only effect it has is to confuse the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
May 10, 2007
Well-acted, sometimes amusing but flat-out tone-deaf.

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.

May 10, 2007
Three noisy women and a worn-out premise rattle around in Georgia Rule, an incoherent dramedy of rampant parental insufficiency from director Garry Marshall.
May 10, 2007
Minow rule: If Hector Elizondo barely makes an appearance in a Garry Marshall film, watch out. If the only place Marshall can find for him is a few seconds on screen as a character with a funny name, the movie is in trouble.

Certain words should be reserved for special occasions. 'Abysmal' is one of them, and Georgia Rule is as special as such occasions get.
May 11, 2007
Playing a teenage tramp is not the best way to adjust a degrading public image. Georgia Rule.

May 11, 2007
It's a shame Lohan's best work to date is bogged down in a film that wants to be in the same league as Terms of Endearment but is only marginally better than Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

How bad is it for actresses in Hollywood? Well, three really good ones thought Georgia Rule was their best option.

So facile that it posits "I love you" as the quick-fix remedy for its characters' myriad, deeply rooted grievances.

May 12, 2007
This uncomfortable dramedy plays like an awkward fusion of 'Little Women' and 'The Accused'
May 10, 2007
Sloppy and awkward and inappropriate, as if the most insensitive student in the class was put in charge of the report on a sensitive subject.

Oh Lindsay Lohan, where has your talent gone?
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
May 10, 2007
Combines battleship actresses of the Steel Magnolias variety, fall-down-go-boom comedy that was obsolete in the '30s, Lindsay Lohan's cleavage and intergenerational fondling just for kicks.
May 11, 2007
It might have helped to put as many women behind the camera as we see behaving badly in front of it.
Full Review | Original Score: D
May 11, 2007
As the family tree in desperate need of psychological pruning, Fonda, Huffman, and Lohan are flawless in their execution of familial breakdown.
Full Review | Original Score: C
May 11, 2007
Strong performances and its R rating help keep Georgia Rule from being a completely overemotional, Lifetime TV mush fest, but only slightly.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 14, 2007
Family values go up in smoke with Lohan pretty much as the incendiary device.
