Georgia Rule Is the Underrated Lindsay Lohan Movie I Recommend to Everyone
When I think about underrated movies, my mind goes straight to Georgia Rule. This family drama, starring Lindsay Lohan, Felicity Huffman, and Jane Fonda as three generations who find themselves living under the same roof for a summer, is the perfect combination of funny and heartbreaking. I'll gladly rant about it for hours on end, if given the chance. I know not many people have seen it, not only because they seem clueless whenever I talk about it, but also because Georgia Rule wasn't exactly well-received when it came out in 2007. In fact, it has an 18 percent critics' score on Rotten Tomatoes. To be fair, I believe Georgia Rule was overlooked when it hit the cinemas, due to the questionable decision to marketing a movie that deals with alcoholism, grief, and sexual abuse as a light-hearted comedy.
So what makes Georgia Rule special, you might ask? Well, apart from giving us the iconic line — "I will find all of your boyfriends and I will f*ck them stupid" — this was one of the first movies I watched that explored the complexities of mother-daughter relationships with the right amount of tact, and wit. More than anything, I believe Georgia Rule sends out a powerful message about how we live in a society that places blame on victims of sexual assault.
