Editorial Reviews

Three generations of top actresses - two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan and Felicity Huffman - unite in a film from director Garry Marshall about the power of redemption, freedom in forgiveness and the unbreakable bonds of motherhood. When Lilly (Huffman) can no longer handle her rebellious teenage daughter, Rachel (Lohan), she takes her to the one place she swore she'd never return…her mother's house. For one very surprising summer, these three very different women are living under one roof and under one rule: Georgia's (Fonda).

3.0 out of 5 stars "Courageous"...But Not Particularly Good September 6, 2007
Format:DVD
Viewing GEORGIA RULE recently I flashed back on a passage from Salinger's FRANNY AND ZOOEY (which I had recently re-read). There is a passage in that book in which a young television actor, speaks disparagingly of scripts that are "courageous," without their necessarily being particularly good. What he's talking about, of course, is the kind of drama that is supposed to be risky and challenging, a bit off beat maybe. "Edgy" might be the current word. That's precisely the kind of dramatic work GEORGIA RULE tries to be. You can just imagine the filmmakers patting themselves (and each other) on the back, congratulating themselves on their frankness and daring.

This is a movie that wants to say SO MUCH--to bravely go where no screenwriter (or director OR producer) would have dared to go before (except that they HAVE, in point of fact). You've got your intergenerational conflict, your intergenerational substance abuse, you've got promiscuous teens--and apparently incestuous step-dads. You've got salty grandmas, agonized moms and troubled, but spunky teens. Now even if you haven't seen all these ingredients mixed up before, it's hard not to find GEORGIA RULE a bit contrived and quite desperate. It nearly breaks under the strain.

The reviews for this film have not been kind, and it seems likely that whatever notoriety it may have garnered may have more to do with Lindsay Lohan's reported bad behavior on the set than with the film's inherent quality. As it turns out, she probably could have just pleaded "Method" and claimed that she was just staying in character off-camera. Her Rachel is a bit of a wastrel. With a heart of gold, of course.

This is a film that virtually invites reviewers to say something cranky about a stellar cast adrift in a lame production.

4.0 out of 5 stars How do we know we're loved? 4 1/2 stars September 11, 2007
Format:DVD
Though I don't recall this movie getting great reviews from the critics, I expected at least a decent movie considering the three main stars. I got more than expected. The three lead actresses were well chosen. Jane Fonda, looking exceptionally well at age 70, is outstanding as the grandmother, Georgia, who lives her life by certain 'rules,' hence the title, and who has a history with her daughter, Lilly, (Felicity Huffman), that seems lacking in emotion. 'Seems' is the operative word. While we aren't exactly privy to what has caused this rift between mother and daughter, we glean from one particular scene that Georgia's parents never told HER that they loved her. We gather that Georgia's apparent inability to say the three words, "I love you" to her daughter may simply be because she was not told what she needed to hear from her parents. In one touching scene between Georgia and Lilly, when Lilly asks her mother if she ever loved her, Georgia replies, 'How could I not love you?' She still is not able to say those three magic words to her daughter though she has no trouble saying them to her granddaughter, Rachel, (Lindsay Lohan). Dermont Mulroney is wonderfully cast as the kindly veterinarian whom Rachel works for and Cary Elwes well cast in a somewhat chilling performance as Rachel's stepfather.

Rachel lies, manipulates, has a history of drug abuse and all manner of teen problems. There is, of course, a reason for her behaviour and underneath it all, we see many glimpses of a tender heart.

This is Ms. Lohan's best performance since she made her wonderful debut as identical twins in 'The Parent Trap' at the age of eleven. Despite the two other big name stars, Lindsay Lohan is THE star of this movie. We can only hope that this gifted young lady is able to heal herself before a very promising career is ruined.

5.0 out of 5 stars I actually enjoyed this film. August 20, 2007
Format:DVD
Thanks to Garry Marshall's wonderful and sensitive direction, I can say I loved this comedy which is actually a drama. This film had terrible marketing, the trailer made me believe this was a comedy but this film is not, Georgia Rule deals with serious and adult subject matter, I won't give it away but I highly recommend this movie 100%. It seems like every Garry Marshall film is absolutely engaging and heartwarming like Beaches, Raising Helen, Pretty Woman, and The Other Sister. Marshall is probably my second favorite director behind James Mangold (Walk the Line, Identity, Girl, Interrupted.) One of the things that surprised me is Lindsay Lohan's perfomance, she blew me away and in her previous films, I felt her acting was wooden and lacked originality but as the rebellious and hard to love Rachel, she nails it and you feel her pain and frustration towards everyone she encounters. Felicity Huffman and Jane Fonda are excellent as always. Every performance is top-notch including Dermont Mulroney who is way too under-rated even to this day. So with that being said, Georgia Rule was the one film I felt that deserved so much more appreciation. Buy or rent it, I am glad I gave this sleeper a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars I watched a different movie than most reviewers September 16, 2007
Format:DVD
I truly enjoyed this movie. I've always been a Fonda fan. Felicity has never disappointed. And Lindsay shows she is a quality actress, right up there with the other two. In the scene in the boat where she's seducing the guy and they show a close up of just her face, you can see every emotion that crosses her mind.

My biggest difference, however with the reviewers is that they harp on how odd it is to have humor in a film on such a serious topic as sexual abuse. I found this movie to be rather on target with its light hearted moments mixed in with the pain. And then these usually male reviewers go on about was she abused, wasn't she, why doesn't she make up her mind. To me, it seems obvious these fellows have never experienced such abuse personally, nor have they observed, with any care, someone who has. There's no straight line to recovery.

I loved this movie for its story and the acting. Nothing rang false in my book.
