Georgia Rule Reviews

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

The tone is so inconsistent that the only effect it has is to confuse the audience.

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.

Three noisy women and a worn-out premise rattle around in Georgia Rule, an incoherent dramedy of rampant parental insufficiency from director Garry Marshall.

Nell Minow
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

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.

Playing a teenage tramp is not the best way to adjust a degrading public image. Georgia Rule.

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.

This uncomfortable dramedy plays like an awkward fusion of 'Little Women' and 'The Accused'

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?

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.

It might have helped to put as many women behind the camera as we see behaving badly in front of it.

As the family tree in desperate need of psychological pruning, Fonda, Huffman, and Lohan are flawless in their execution of familial breakdown.

Strong performances and its R rating help keep Georgia Rule from being a completely overemotional, Lifetime TV mush fest, but only slightly.

Family values go up in smoke with Lohan pretty much as the incendiary device.
