Georgia Rule Reviews
Of course, all three learn something about life and family ties. I couldn't understand the dance around the "is she telling the truth or lying?" aspect of the movie.
In this surprisingly austere PG-13-rated drama, a frustrated mother (Felicity Huffman) takes her uncontrollable daughter (Lohan) to the one place she swore she would never return?her domineering mother?s (Fonda) Idaho farm.
Drinking and language and rape?oh my! For argument?s sake, let us imagine that the consensus of filmgoers walked into the theater oblivious to the fact that the movie poster adorning their theater featured three movie stars happy-go-luckily grinning from ear-to-ear. Open to the possibility of watching a drama, any audience would certainly entertain the strains of the rather serious themes addressed in Georgia Rule, right? Of course?only the murky plotting and forceful character development crocheted between the comedic moments makes for one mess of a mosaic that unintentionally makes light of its dark undercurrents. Think: the historic abortion episode of Maude but with pratfalls.
Bottom line: As laugh-out-loud as a public hanging.
But if she is like in this movies, I wont say yes if she asking me for a date.
