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.
May 12, 2007
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.
May 11, 2007
You'd think that decree No. 1 for a movie about rules would be to know exactly what kind of picture you're making and selling. Georgia Rule fails that basic test, and a whole lot of other ones besides.
May 11, 2007
As an acting showcase -- the supporting roles are as rich as the leads -- Georgia Rule is undeniably one of the year's best American dramedies.
May 11, 2007
It's a creepy, tone-deaf movie about three generations of women.
May 11, 2007
A murky blend of melodrama and comedy.

Do not take your mom to Georgia Rule unless she's Roseanne Barr. You may expect a three-generational chick flick, but what you get is a child-rape comedy.
May 11, 2007
Misguided at best and repellent at worst.
May 11, 2007
You can see what they are striving for, but Georgia Rule is so artificial, it feels like more of a flow chart than a slice of life.

Not to excuse her apparent lack of professionalism, but can you blame Lohan for showing up to work in bad shape?
May 11, 2007
If there is a 'What Were They Thinking?' Hall of Shame, there's a whole wall preserved for Georgia Rule, a feel-good, mothers-and-daughters comedy about child sexual abuse.
May 11, 2007
There's little gussied up in this surprisingly tart mother-child-grandchild reunion picture, written by Mark Andrus.
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.

Georgia Rule is a bad idea dreadfully executed -- On Golden Pond with fellatio jokes and whimsical incest melodrama and Fonda playing her dad (who, more and more, she eerily resembles).
May 11, 2007
This is a sexual drama not for the squeamish or for the easily offended, but for those looking for adult entertainment and not the usual summer CGI whiz-bang this one fits the bill and then some.
May 10, 2007
Certain words should be reserved for special occasions. 'Abysmal' is one of them, and Georgia Rule is as special as such occasions get.
