(D: Garry Marshall, 113 min)
In Georgia Rule , tabloid princess Lindsay Lohan plays a bratty teen who's forced by her mom ( Felicity Huffman ) to live with no-bullshit country grandma Georgia ( Jane Fonda ). Oh, don't you love it when art imitates life?
This is the film, after all, where the studio's head slapped Lohan with a letter about her "spoiled child" behaviour and threatened to sue if that behaviour continued. (We're pretty sure La Lohan wasn't just getting into character.)
Fonda broke her 15-year screen hiatus for Monster-In-Law. And now this? Garry Marshall , the king of studio schlock, directs. Let's hope Huffman at least has a few decent scenes.
Opens Friday (May 11). Screened after press time - see review May 10 at www.nowtoronto.com/film.
