A rebellious young woman (Lindsay Lohan) who repeatedly gets herself into trouble, is sent to stay with her grandmother (Jane Fonda) in Idaho for the summer.

Also with Cary Elwes, Dermot Mulroney and Garrett Hedlund. Directed by Garry Marshall. [1:53]

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
