The "In's and Out's" of the Country Music Business
17 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

So I hear Nashville Girl is a flick that all exploitation fans should enjoy. Well, after watching NG, I'd agree and disagree.

First the story, which revolves around young and innocent lovely deciding to run away from home and shoot for her dreams of becoming a country singer. It's a story-idea we've all watched before, from movie's about athletes reaching their goals to an actor hitting it big on the big screen. But with Nashville Girl this movie shows the oh-so real and seedy parts of the bizz. Which were all the reasons why this film is considered an exploit film. Sure it has some sleazy scenes, but nothing is graphic to the point of a double-take. That is where I disagree, the film barely felt like an exploitation classic. It felt like just a solid, well-made film. Obviously there are levels of exploitation when it comes down to an exploit flick, and I guess this is just one that measures a little low on the Sick Scale.

Nashville Girl overall though is a really good flick. With average to great acting by almost all involved the movie's emotional issues feel much more realistic. And with it's realistic approach, solid writing, and great soundtrack, the movie delivers far more than it fails to. If you're into exploit films and you're watching this for some heavy sleaze or violence, you may be slightly let-down. But don't dismay, Nashville Girl is a really good movie and one of the best "hicksploitation" flicks out there.
