76-year-old women are not often the leads in mainstream American movies, especially not current ones, so I suppose I should be grateful, but I kept wishing this vehicle were a better one.

Solid showcase that proves to have a little more substance than the trailer suggests.

At a brisk 80 minutes, Grandma doesn't waste a moment in devotion to Tomlin's bravura performance.

Achieves a perfect balance in tone between comedy and drama, in which plenty of potentially melodramatic events and situations are rendered delicately, realistically, dryly, perfectly. I loved this movie.

"Grandma" tackles social issues with utter frankness, humor, and intelligence.

It mostly feels as if it has been thrown together over a weekend (both the writing and the direction). But the script crackles and spits.

Sweet, funny and delightfully acerbic, watching actress Lily Tomlin do her best work since earning an Oscar nom for 1976's Nashville is monumental in itself.

A great role for a truly great talent, who just happens to be in her 70s. The movie is just under 90 minutes, but Tomlin delivers in that short time. Her wise-cracking one-liners are tempered by a real sense of loss and vulnerability.

Written and directed by Paul Weitz, Grandma is wickedly funny, emotionally intelligent and also very brave.

... Grandma is overall a funny, thoughtful, occasionally sad film about several generations of women in a family trying to deal with one another, anchored by Lily Tomlin's fantastic performance.
