Trivia

Reportedly, the character Buck Bonham that Willie Nelson played is considered to have borne more than a passing similarity to the actual Willie Nelson the person in real life. This duality was also displayed in Nelson's character Buck Bonham's life experience in the film's story. This is reflected in the movie's tagline that states: "For 20 years, he's been singing to the country. But he never figured he'd be living his own love songs.". See more »

Honeysuckle Rose is great
15 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie and finally was able to get a VHS tape on the internet after trying video catalogs for years. I have listened to the soundtrack when I'm busy, and it still gets to me. I can believe the storyline about the mutual attraction between Willie and his "temporary" singer. The climactic scenes were hilarious. I liked this movie so well that I also bought "Songwriter". I guess I'm going through a Willie Nelson period, but I have enjoyed him in all of his movies, starting with his short bit in "Electric Horseman", where I first noticed him. I had never heard his music until after I "discovered" him in "Electric Horseman". If I have any complaint about his music, it is that "On the Road Again" is way too short. I think that,as an actor, he grows on you and continues to get better each time, much like Chuck Norris did.
