With Grandma, Lily Tomlin may have taken on a mission more impossible than any shadowy menace that ever vexed Tom Cruise: entering the summer blockbuster fray with a small, bittersweet ramble of a film about a testy septuagenarian lesbian trying to rustle up $600 for her teenage granddaughter’s abortion. Sam Elliott, Marcia Gay Harden, and Judy Greer supply sharp cameos, but this is Tomlin’s movie, and she obliges with a spiky, refreshingly unvarnished performance. B+
