Default 'Straight Talk' - High-Def Digest Review

Man oh man, I've had the theme song to this movie stuck in my head since I saw it on a plane 19 years ago...

Nate has just watched 'Straight Talk.' You heard it here first, he liked it. Video and audio on this release are no great shakes. Extras do not exist. Yet it's so cheap, and so enchanting, that damned if you just might like it. Worth a look!

This was a favorite of my mothers growing up. So, when it came time to watch films...this was usually in the rotation. I have nothing negative to really say about it. It's harmless.

I have never seen this movie, is this the theme song that will haunt my dreams if I attempt to watch it?

Don't worry, everything is going to be all right.

I'm scarred for the rest of my life...I just listened to a really poppy Dolly Parton song. My life shall never be the same again.

I saw this movie once when I was younger and I remembered liking it and the songs stuck with me. This review got me to rent it again, and yeah, it's still a cute movie.

The weird thing being that it's almost a musical. The film spends more time in montage mode than Stallone and Wes Anderson combined. And it's the lead actress singing all the songs, with lyrics that relate directly to the plot in the movie, and the songs play out in their entirety. The only thing keeping it from being a musical is that you don't see Parton singing along with herself on screen.
