Peace, Love & Misunderstanding mostly comes across as chintzy and uninspired as its title.
June 18, 2012
The lighting was so off in this movie that bright patches of sunlight made me squint and dark nighttime scenes lost some character's facial features.
June 16, 2012
For a movie that professes to teach us to get past our insecurities and think more freely, it does so with astonishingly conventional storytelling tropes.

How much you forgive this depends on your tolerance for tie-dye, Jane Fonda, senior citizens who never outgrew their '60s idealism and the Grateful Dead

June 7, 2012
"Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" treats the Hudson Valley as a kind of Eden, and it is not the first film to do so, merely one of the duller. All is schematic in the extreme.

What saves the film from being simply a schematic mother-daughter reconciliation drama is both the reluctance and prickliness that Catherine Keener brings to her character.

The likable cast cannot rescue this clunky movie wallowing in tired hippie cliches. Script could have used about six rewrites.

June 8, 2012
Besides blatant chick flick romantic appeal, the mothers/daughters relationships hold a modicum of interest . . .plus an incidental memorial tribute to the late Levon Helm.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 8, 2012
More akin to a Jane Fonda vanity project than a narrative, it's so bland that even such schmaltzy femme-oriented cable networks as Lifetime TV might dismiss it for a decided lack of bite.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
June 8, 2012
There is no casting decision or character nuance or plot turn too obvious to indulge.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 7, 2012
This musty comedy makes its chosen location look like a place that exists only to heal refugees from the city, and provide answers for life's problems.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 7, 2012
The fortune cookie of a screenplay is not great, and I didn't believe a second of "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding," but the actresses are so fantastic it almost doesn't matter.

Kind of a drag, man.

June 13, 2012
Jane Fonda's hippy offers nothing but a chance for Catherine Keener's uptight New Yorker to bicker with. What a flat film.

I can't imagine what a bore Peace, Love & Misunderstanding would be without Fonda's presence.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
June 13, 2012
Drug use and cliches mar unoriginal indie dramedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 6, 2012
Squanders the abilities of these usually fearless, formidable actresses with material that's entirely predictable and a high sap factor that belongs in a made-for-cable production.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 10, 2012
f Woodstock represented three days of love and peace, "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" mostly takes up 96 minutes of your time, most who see will wish they could get back.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Everyone wants to take a load off, Annie, but it's easier said than done.
