Quotes of the Week

On Georgia Rule:

Many critics did not like the weird mood swings and uneven tone (though some liked it for just that reason). Suzanne Condie Lambert described the problem well:

Director Garry Marshall's comedy-drama suffers from an unfortunate role reversal. The comedy is stunningly unfunny, while the drama is sometimes disturbingly funny.
The Arizona Republic

I liked the economy of Ella Taylor's description:
An incoherent dramedy of rampant parental insufficiency.
The Village Voice

And Michael Wilmington gets this week's wisecrack-incorporating-current-events award:
Maybe "Georgia Rule" should be required viewing for Paris Hilton during her term in the slammer. But not for us.
Chicago Tribune
