There is something kind of groovy about "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. " The mellow yellow comedy stars Jane Fonda as a 70-something hippie with a passion for pot and protest suddenly dealing with the prodigal daughter who is back in the picture after revolting against that lifestyle years ago.

Celebrities love giving advice, whether it's hunky Mario Lopez telling us how to work out or zany Jenny McCarthy counseling us on autism. Judging from some of their book and video sales, apparently we like to listen. Jane Fonda is no exception.

That gave her some cred in the fitness world, and for good reason - her impeccably toned body was a walking billboard for clean living.
