      Critics Consensus

      Comedic and dramatic in all the wrong places, Georgia Rule is a confused dramedy that wastes the talents of its fine cast.

      Melissa Anderson Time Out Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The confused script trades in such heavy topics as alcoholism and child sexual abuse, but every dramatic scene plays like one of those schmaltzy Happy Days moments that inevitably drew a big 'Awwwwww!' from the studio audience. Dec 3, 2007 Full Review Rex Reed Observer Time for a new book by Jane Fonda, and this time I expect a full chapter on how she got snookered into doing Georgia Rule. May 16, 2007 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz Georgia Rule reminds as to why Lohan, unlike some of Hollywood's other troublemakers of the late noughties, has been missed. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 11, 2022 Full Review Micheal Compton Bowling Green Daily News The actors are sabotaged by Marshall and screenwriter Mark Andrus, who make the fatal decision of trying to water down its grim story with forced comedy. Nov 21, 2019 Full Review Heather Huntington ReelzChannel.com Oh Lindsay Lohan, where has your talent gone? Rated: 6/10 Aug 23, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

      Kyle E It has great performances from its leads, but it was uncomfortable of how it handles child abuse Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/07/24 Full Review Blanca A It was so uncomfortable to see how they handled such a delicate matter as child abuse. Very disturbing and distasteful! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Jon L One of Lindsay Lohan's best performances. Should've been nominated for an Oscar for this, that's how good she was!
