Even though Grandma never tries to be more than a feel good movie, it would've worked better if the characters woudl've been better writen and the situations where more realistic. [Full review in Spanish]
The idea that Lily Tomlin's character is some straight-talking firecracker simply for saying things most of the audience probably agrees with is kind of patronizing, isn't it? This is a movie far too impressed with its own very mild edginess.
