“Mother. Daughter. Grandmother. In this family, attitude doesn’t skip a generation.”
Oh dear, this is really a horrible movie. It’s not that the movie isn’t “well-made,” it’s that the subject matter is way over the boundaries of good taste. As I left the theatre, I thought to myself, “This movie is so full of sin it REEKS.” I think it must really grieve God when a movie like this is produced and pawned off as entertainment.
This is a story of three women—Georgia, the grandmother played by Jane Fonda, Lilly, her daughter played by Felicity Huffman, and Rachel the granddaughter played by Lindsay Lohan. I suppose this is probably some kind of a “message movie” that is supposed to show “strong women” and the “complicated relationships in a family.” In truth, this is a foul, stinking film that blatantly discusses things that they should be too ashamed to voice. If you decide to view this film you will see and/or hear…
At one point the mother/daughter relationship in this movie distressed me so much I was in tears. If my daughter spoke to me like Lohan speaks to her mother in this movie, I would weep myself sick.
I really didn’t find anything redeeming in this film, or find anything to justify its existence. I was happy that there were only a few of us in the theatre, and I saw no teens. This movie tries to shout “look at me, I’m a good story about feisty women who love each other no matter what!” Kind of “I am woman, hear me roar.” When, in reality, this film whimpers “I’m sick, sinful, foul-mouthed, slutty, and my life is completely without redemption.”
As you might have guessed, I cannot and will not recommend this film for family-viewing or for Christians. Don’t waste your time or your money and allow this filth into your heart. Ugh!
