Georgia Rule (2006) movie review

Small Town Entertainment


- You don't know where you're going. You don't know where you are.

- Yes I do.

In this mothers-and-daughters movie the out-of-control Rachel (Lindsay Lohan) goes to stay with her grandmother Georgia (Jane Fonda) for the summer. There she demonstrates all the lovely character traits that caused her to be shipped off to Idaho.

- Are you crazy?

- No, I'm Rachel.

Georgia Rule has some great one-liners but by 15 minutes into the film it becomes born-again.

- You don't look evil.

- Makeup helps.

In this family, attitude doesn't skip a generation.

If at Christmas Baptist Sunday Schools gave out DVDs of movies instead of books, this is the movie DVD they would give away.

Please don't make me ever watch this movie again.
