This movie was a complete surprise! I had heard the worst reviews and when I watched it I was happily surprised. Love her or hate her Lindsey Lohan can act. I agree with others that say this movie was badly advertised. It is definitely not a light comedy, but deals with a real issue of sexual abuse. Lohan's acting makes the watcher laugh, cry, and ask yourself if she really just said that. She makes all those around her shine. I'm tired of the same old movies making it big on screen just because they are the stereotypical feel good comedies. This is finally an original movie with an <more>
original screenplay. If you are tired of copycat movies you should watch this one. Thumbs up!
I didn't see any previews for this movie, so had no expectations. It actually starts out with a situation that's kind of funny, and the girl Lindsay Lohen plays is unconventional and interesting. After a while you start to care about the women and slide into a family drama. By the last scene I was teary-eyed--it was a satisfying ending. The three women were all such good actresses--they showed their emotions subtly and each of their characters was so believable. I don't see how the movie could have been any better. That said, I do think it would be most popular with people old <more>
enough to have dealt with a teenage daughter. I went with a college student, though, and she liked it. I think some men would like it, but to be safe I'd consider it a chick flick.
Georgia Rule has been pushed by the three main stars, Jane Fonda, Felicity Huffman and Lindsey Lohan in all the talk shows during the past week. I saw a lot of clips and figured it was just another repeat performance of Fonda"s role in Monster in Law, which I thought was just average.Besides my wife's insistence, I was persuaded to attend the opening today by the presence of Garry Marshall in the project. Turns out I was delightfully surprised. All three female leads were exceptionally well cast and acted together superbly. They represented the three generations perfectly.This is <more>
billed as a Comedy/Drama and that it is. The comedy was better than most and the drama built up as the characters' true selves and their strengths and weaknesses evolved. This is by far the best of its genre to come in a long time. Don't miss it!
Great movie - Great Cast - Bad Marketing (by rwilliams-32)
Once again Hollywood marketing has classified a heartfelt drama as a rip roaring comedy. Georgia Rule is no laughing matter, but it is a powerful, worthwhile movie with an outstanding cast. Forget all the critic's reviews -- they don't "get it". The opening is a little slow but it accurately portrays the strained relationships and secrets in this family. Fonda and Huffman are brilliant and so is Lohan. Given the press surrounding Lohan during the filming, my expectations were pretty low and I was very surprised at how good she was and how good the movie was. It's a great <more>
movie to open dialog with your Mom or your resident teenager. Take the R rating seriously - it's a mature chick flick - one of the best.Garry Marshall did a good job at handling a heavy subject. There are a couple of laughs along the way for comedy relief, but this is a movie that will stay with you. Go see it.
I don't want to spoil anything, so I guess I'll talk in generalities. Such a great movie. I was expecting something completely different, the movie is SO much deeper and more poignant than I ever would have imagined from the trailers. The trailers almost do a disservice to the film--it is a rare day when I actually think a movie is much better than the trailers make it out to be.It is a very surprising movie, and in a way keeps you guessing the entire time. Wonderful dynamics and great dialogue. Stellar performance by Huffman. Lohan and Fonda were also both quite good. I definitely <more>
recommend this film. I actually might go see it again and I never see a movie twice in the theater!
Fonda, Huffman, and Lohan do some excellent ensemble work in this nicely paced and absorbing screenplay. There is just the right amount of humor to keep the film buoyant and alive. Alcoholism and sexual abuse are uneasy subjects to tackle. Georgia Rules offers the viewer more than just a glimpse into these issues. The film provides strong characters who work their way through their demons with spirit and humanity. Dermot Mulroney does fine work, as the Idahoan doctor/veterinarian, who helps Lohan "find her way home." Huffman is truly touching as a mother torn between truth and lies. <more>
Fonda is especially wonderful. Her strength as an actress is something rare these days. She truly gels the film into worthwhile cinema. I hope she many more worthwhile roles ahead of her.
It wasn't what I thought it was going to be... (by LaurenRachel87)
I won't lie--this was not the best movie I've ever seen, but it was pretty darn good. I didn't really expect much from Lohan but she actually blew me away. My one gripe about Lohan was her age portrayal. It was hard to believe she was seventeen with a smoker's rasp and second-skin jeans. Fonda on the other hand... not her best work, she was completely generic. Huffman's performance was humorous, although a little dark. Her alcoholism is pretty believable except the antibuse thing. The movie was amusing and the unexpected plot twist kept me stringing along for the duration <more>
of the movie trying to figure it all out, but not in a frustrating way. Overall I think this movie was far better than expected and totally enjoyable.
Garry Marshall brings another emotional and moving story to screen (by Robert_duder)
I suppose ultimately my expectations weren't high going into Georgia Rule considering the lack luster reviews by critics and the ongoing poor press of it's young star Lindsay Lohan but I forgot one key element...the director. Garry Marshall is brilliant!! He has done some of the most entertaining films in history including my personal favorite The Princess Diaries, as well as Pretty Woman, Beaches and a host of absolutely classic Television shows. Marshall has a way of capturing reality, he has a way of making us fall in love with his characters and be riveted by their lives and what <more>
happens to them. He just makes his films come alive and Georgia Rule is no exception to Marshall's rule. The film is a little more gritty and dark, perhaps a little more adult than what Marshall usually delves into but that being said it still has it's charm, it still has a dark, twisted humor to it and it still has Hector Elizondo who Marshall likes to cameo or feature in his films. The cast is brought together very well and everyone works well together in it and you love being a part of the daily routine of the small town. There is enough drama, emotion, comedy, and overall scenes of pure joy to make this a good movie.I'll start with Jane Fonda. As famous as she is this is only the second movie I've ever seen her in...the first was Monster-In-Law and I became an instant fan of hers. Her comic timing, her character and her performance was downright brilliant. In this turn she is Georgia, a firm and dedicated woman who lives on her own and but is well known to the townspeople. She has a set way to do things and no one is going to tell her otherwise. Georgia is terrific...the perfect match for Fonda and does a great job. Fonda is such a talented actress and Hollywood elite and she lights up the screen and yet still comes across as this down home, lovable character. My only complaint is that she wasn't used more in the film than she was. Felicity Huffman, I became a big fan of after watching the brilliant film Transamerica where she played a man wanting to go through the transformation into a woman...her performance was amazing. In Georgia Rule she plays the daughter of Jane Fonda's Georgia, Lilly. Now Lilly hasn't always appreciated her mother's firm nature and has had a rough go of it battling alcoholism, two marriages and her wild and uncontrollable daughter. Huffman isn't the forefront of the story but she adds a lot of emotion to her role. Her battle with alcoholism and her daughter and her estranged second husband give way to some very powerful moments. She is a great actress. And now we tread lightly into the world of the recently arrested Miss Lindsay Lohan. We all heard she was nearly fired from this film for her wild ways and I mean her role in this film must strike so close to home it hurts. As Rachel, Lohan plays a confused and messed up post high school graduate who likes her recreational drugs, drinking and random sexual encounters. She doesn't want to listen to so called 'authority figures' and thinks her life is just fine but she's hiding a devastating secret. Lohan I thought overall was good...she didn't match the performances of her senior performers but to go up against Jane Fonda is pretty impressive. She has some great lines and she definitely pulls off the firecracker role very well. Also on the plus side she looks relatively healthy considering her real life health issues as of late. Dermot Mulroney is also very good and actually shows some life to his usually rather dull performances as local Doctor/Veterinarian Simon. Simon becomes almost like a father figure to Rachel and is the one to really bring her back around to coming to terms with herself and her issues. Mulroney is a good addition to the cast. Cary Elwes rounds out the cast as Rachel's stepfather and Garrett Hedlund as her love interest. Elwes is appropriately normal looking but still becomes the villain in a different way and you want to see him get his just end. Hedlund is okay as the naive and love struck Harlan. He comes across as a bit of a dolt which is okay but ultimately you don't want the main romantic interest to be downright stupid. Naive is one thing.Despite it's serious content the film is about sexual abuse and coming-of-age in a different sort of way...something director Garry Marshall does with style always the film has some genuinely funny moments. I wouldn't hesitate to see this film again because there was something charming about it and ultimately it did have it's happy ending although my one big complaint is that Cary Elwes' character never truly gets what's coming to him. I wanted to see Lohan take her aggressions out on him. However the scene with Jane Fonda's Georgia hitting him with the bat is priceless. This film is a classic I think and will go far despite critics and dollar signs. See it!! You'll enjoy it!! 8.5/10
I was expecting some light entertainment; a relaxing outing after a busy week at work. I sat back and relaxed and soon into this film felt like I was sucker punched by a thug. Whoa! Talk about having almost no connection with the film's advertising... this is the poster child.After recovering from the shocking revelations from Lohan's character it was a see-saw plot that kept you guessing. Garry Marshall did a wonderful job in the performances he elicited from the cast, especially Felicity Huffman and Lindsay Lohan. I never would have guessed that Lohan would have such actual talent. <more>
The very real emotion she displayed will doubtless have some guessing if there is some of her own real life victimization in here. I certainly hope not, as the character's history is deeply ugly and all too familiar to me. I really felt I knew her here, and felt her experiences, her pain and helplessness. Some of the dialog I've said myself in real life.The next treat was Ms. Huffman, albeit a much less sympathetic character. But her performance was stunningly real.The rest of the cast did their jobs well enough, but the clear centerpiece here is Lohan as the victim fighting a world that has wronged her greatly. I would not object to her being nominated for an academy award for this... even winning. I was that moved.The other usual trappings of the film business were all well done. It did not look like Idaho to me, more like some parts of Southern California, but all of that takes a back seat to the story here. It is a shame that more people will not go see this movie because they have no idea what it is really about.Thanks Mr. Marshall, for a great film on a despicable subject.
