A clunky family-therapy soaper.

Chicago Tribune
Maybe Georgia Rule should be required viewing for Paris Hilton during her term in the slammer. But not for us.

It's an interesting, maddening mess -- not a terrible movie, and by no means a dull one.
42
There's enough family dysfunction here to fill out a dozen soppy soap operas.

Village Voice
There's almost no rescuing this wobbly movie from its showdowns and insights. Except, that is, when Lohan's around.
40
Never rings true. It's a dramedy whose blend of melodrama and humor is awkward and incongruous, leaping between the two modes like a fat frog jumping lilypads.
30
Proves to be more prone to malfunction than dysfunction.
30
Variety
No offense to either of them, but Georgia Rule suggests an Ingmar Bergman script as directed by Jerry Lewis. The subject matter is grim, the relationships are gnarled, the worldview is bleak, and, at any given moment, you suspect someone's going to be hit with a pie.

Premiere
And so it goes, leaving an awful taste and the inevitable question: Jane Fonda made a comeback to do dreck like this and "Monster-in-Law?"
10
Just what we need least: a warm family comedy about child molestation.That's Georgia Rule, which combines battleship actresses of the "Steel Magnolias" variety, fall-down-go-boom comedy that was obsolete in the '30s, Lindsay Lohan's cleavage and intergenerational fondling just for kicks.
