Did You Know?

Trivia:
Felicity Huffman got so physical in her car fight scene with Cary Elwes that she broke the windshield, so when the car pulled over they filmed it from behind as they both get out.

Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: Rachel slides off her panties while trying to seduce Harlan, and when she offers to let him "touch it", she parts her legs slightly and it can clearly be seen that she's wearing another pair of panties.

Quotes:
Lilly: I brought you a gift
Georgia: It's lovely.
Lilly: How do you know?
Georgia: The ribbon and the paper.



User Review

Great movie - Great Cast - Bad Marketing

Rating: 9/10

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 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.
