For God's sake, somebody get Jane Fonda a decent script. After a long hiatus from acting, Fonda returned to the screen in 2005 and immediately fell victim to the Robert De Niro syndrome: she's too old for the kind of roles that made her an icon but too iconic to disappear into a role anymore. Like her last Hollywood feature, Georgia Rule (2007), this one is a lame comedy drama about a larger-than-life matriarch (Fonda) trying to straighten things out with her alienated daughter (Catherine Keener) and advise her pretty granddaughter (Elizabeth Olsen). In the earlier movie the Fonda character was a strict Christian woman in small-town Idaho; now she's an old hippie letting it all hang out in Woodstock, New York. (The tepid jokes mostly revolve around grandma smoking pot, etc.) Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) directed; the other fine actors working with nothing include Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Kyle MacLachlan.
