A folk duo embark on an ill-fated tour in British comedy drama, Benny & Jolene. Here's Ryan's review of a disappointing film...

Their 33-city tour, "On With the Show," starts Sept. 30 in Minneapolis. McVie, 70, last toured with the band in 1998. "And I said, 'Well, Chris, have you seen us in concert lately? Because you should see us, because it's very physical," Nicks said. "It's almost three hours, and you kind of have to be an athlete. So, get a trainer.' And she did! »
