They Won't quit Until They Make It (Sketchy Spoilers)
8 February 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

This may be sketchy but I recall the movie to be inspiring and well worth a look. Two guys come to Nashville and try to make it on the country music scene. Their vision is to play at the Grand IL' Opry. Rejection after rejection pushes them to the verge of quitting and moving back to wherever they came from. Finally they hatch a plan to sneak into the Grand IL Opry during a performance and WOW the audience with their music. I won't give the ending away. From what I can see, this one might be found in the used VHS bin at a second hand store or at a garage sale. So if you find it, hand over the 50 cent and watch it! It wasn't too bad.
