    Lily Tomlin's best performance in many years

    It's a comedy, it's a road movie, it's an actor's tour de force, it's a message movie, it's a drama, it's a 'strong female lead' movie, it's an indie film, it's lighthearted, it's believable. What Grandma lacks in originality it more than makes up for in its cohesiveness. Better than the sum of its parts - possibly due to its short running time [82 minutes] - and definitely worth seeing.

    Old story. Teen girl gets pregnant and runs to Grandma, who just happens to be a lesbian. for help. Like a road trip through strange friends and relatives to collect money for an abortion. Great cast - Lily Tomlin, Marcia Gay Harden (who is great in just about anything.)

    I'm usually a stickler about extremely short running times for films, but the just under 80 minutes of film here are perfect. Minimalist filmmaking worked so well in this case. The acting is great & the story is very straightforward. Great little film.

    A fast movie about a lesbian grandmother who's granddaughter needs money for a abortion. Both of them have a day of troubles while trying to figuring out how to handle this. Short but well written.

    I fell in love with Lily Tomlin again after watching this film. She gave an amazing performance. I was unsure about the film at first, but it blossomed. Great cast too! Highly recommended.

    I like lily tomlin and Sam Elliott- did not really like the excessive potty mouth on Lily's character- a little over kill / turn off But that's my opinion

    The preview we saw on the tv for the movie, was the only decent part of the entire movie. After we saw it, it was tossed in the garbage can.
