Critics Consensus

Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding produces many unintentional laughs with its absurdly contrived plot and cheery insistence that everything is just super.

Audience Reviews for Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding

    "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" starts with Mark(Kyle MacLachlan) asking Diane(Catherine Keener), a lawyer, for a divorce. In reponse, she takes their children, Zoe(Elizabeth Olsen) and Jake(Nat Wolff) to the home of her mother Grace(Jane Fonda) in Woodstock which would be considered only natural if they had spoken any time in the past twenty years. Still, Grace welcomes everybody with welcome arms before preparing for the latest in a long line of antiwar protests. And that's pretty much it for the underwhelming "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding," as differences in opinion, most importantly what to have for lunch, are attempted to be settled. Also, each character almost instantenously gets a love interest upon arrival but at least in this case they are mostly male, along with the nude model. Otherwise, the cliches pile up at a fast and furious pace, proving that the only thing I hate worse than stereotypes are false ones, as most of upstate New York is with the exception of some pockets of resistance in reality quite conservative, with Woodstock Nation being figurative rather than literal. All of which even some of the most talented actresses of three generations can do little with.

    Nice bland movie...good to see on a snowy wintry night. Jane Fonda, the grandmother, looked younger than Catherine Keener, her daughter, but that's Hollywood suspension of disbelief I guess. One thought kept going through my head: if daughter hadn't seen mother in 20 years (20 years!) I think there should have been a lot more splainin and conflict there. And another nit-pick: do such old hippies really exist? I know it was Woodstock, but....really?

    Much better than I expected. Nice little movie with a good cast. Nothing groundbreaking, but kept me interested.

    Jane is a lot of fun but this is a meandering unfocused mess.
