It’s as if Satan woke up one morning, scratched his balls and thought, “Hmm … I really want to screw with Bob Grimm today. I’m going to make a movie that has everything he hates, and he’ll have to watch my satanic cinematic brew, and I will laugh the whole time ... HA HA HA HA!” Oh, Satan threw in a few things I like, mainly Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener and Elizabeth Olsen, but then he made the film about hippies, drum circles and the Grateful Dead. Keener stars as a woman on the verge of divorce who takes her kids, one of them played by Olsen, to the country to hang with their kooky hippie grandma (Fonda). I guess this is Fonda’s modern version of On Golden Pond (although I thought that was what Georgia Rule was). It makes me angry that we lost Fonda for all those years, and they can’t find a decent role for her other than “kooky grandma.” This is lazy, sorry filmmaking at its worst.
