Rachel is a rebellious teenager who is uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in mom Lily's San Francisco home. Lily hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she'd never return, her mother's Idaho farm. Georgia is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding anyone who shares her home do the same. Now Georgia is saddled with raising the young woman and it will require each patient breath she takes to understand Rachel's fury. But as Rachel succumbs to her summer of misery, Georgia notices something is changing within her granddaughter. Given structure and responsibilities, Rachel is letting her guard down and learning compassion. Her journey will lead all three women to revelations of buried family secrets and an understanding that, regardless what happens, the ties that bind can never be broken.

I enjoyed this movie. There are three generations of women, each with their own challenges and ways of responding to challenges and each other. How do you love someone who is self-destructive and apparently a pathological liar? How do you re-build a relationship after years of silence, separation, and misunderstanding? I was amazed at how the movie established the complexity and depth of these challenges, but then proceeded in believable ways to show the characters struggling and overcoming. There are male romantic interests, but fortunately, you don't feel that they are the Answer.

The DVD extras are also interesting. Director Garry Marshall shares how he wanted to do a movie that dealt with real life, but with a light touch. The movie addresses serious topics, but there's a lot of humor. A rewarding movie!

A hard topic that Gary Marshall handled very well. If you're looking for one of his great comedy's this isn't it. It is a movie well worth watching.

Good movie. Three generations of women coming together through hard times and laughter.

Nice chick flick, not too intense or gushy.

Language was more than expected, preview did not give anything away. Two ratings on case (14+ and R) go with the R for language and concepts.
