Elle Reid (Lily Tomlin) has just gotten through breaking up with her girlfriend when her granddaughter, Sage, unexpectedly shows up needing $600 before sundown.

  • Really still not rentable?

    By pumblino
    This movie has been released about a year ago and it was a flop. So I'm lost.... why cat it be available for rent like more fascinating flux that had much better ratings and were available in half the time. I can't rate good if I can't watch. Not paying $13 to buy it when I never watch a movie more than once.
  • Not just bad, unwatchable

    By ojalaquellueva
    This movie is a poster child for Hollywood rubbish. It is the sort of hysterical overwrought comedy that gives American comedy a bad name and leaves you wishing you'd watched a smart understated (and guess what, funny) British comedy instead. Cringe-worthy. The plot lurches from one implausible, what-the-hell-brought-that-on conflict to another. The character played by Lily Tomlin is impossible to believe. Poor Lily, I could feel her straining to make grandma believable. But there's no rescuing an crappy script. The other characters are similarly unbelievable. Every time they opened their mouths to deliver some snappy Hollywood comeback I struggled not to hit stop. Finally I could resist no longer. Unwatchable.
  • Everything An Indie Should Be

    'Grandma' is truly a little gem, well-written and hilarious with a wonderful supporting cast! It might not be for everyone but give it a chance; it will enlighten you!
  • Criminally Underrated

    This was one of the best films of 2015 and one of my all time favorites. Lily Tomlin is hilarious as the foul mouthed grandma. It's the feel good movie of the year about abortions and aging lesbians.
  • Save your self two hours

    Save your self two hours and go read a book or at least watch something else. The people could not be worse to each other in this movie. Watch the trailer and move on as that was the best part.
  • Good movie

    By Josh Wilhoit
    It was really cute. I would recommend. This isn't really a comedy though.

  • Misunderstood

    By wild cloud
    This movie is fantastic- cast, acting, writing, directing… all of it. For those who gave it poor reviews- go watch some more fluff; this one’s beyond you.
  • Well Written

    it’s an “Indie” film so many might not get it.. But it is really well done. Tomlin is perfect as grandma...
