Family Movie Review: Peace, Love & Misunderstanding (R)

PeaceLoveMisunderstanding ChesapeakeFamilyMovieReviewKernel Rating (out of 5): whole-popcorn-kernalwhole-popcorn-kernal

MPAA Rating: R       Length: 92 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 15+. Mostly rated R for all the talk and images of marijuana use; also drinking, mild cursing, animal carcasses (shown at a butcher shop and in a PETA-style video), and two implied sex scenes, without any nudity. Two men’s butts are depicted in a humorous way, and there is a painting of a topless woman in the background of one scene.

‘Peace, Love & Misunderstanding’ isn’t bad, necessarily, but its good actors are mired down by thoroughly unsurprising material. From the first 15 minutes of this multi-generational “give love a chance” flick, you know the hippie-dippy place you’re going to end up.

By Roxana Hadadi

Oh, how often the entitled question their rich, meaningless lives in film! The classic happy-but-poor versus wealthy-but-disgruntled dynamic is explored in expected ways in “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding,” which pits hippie mom against lawyer daughter in an unsurprising quest for the meaning of life. Jane Fonda is certainly talented enough to anchor the multi-generational family dramedy, but the film just slips and slides along, never establishing a sense of real urgency or identity.
