A movie ratable by any standard
11 November 2006 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

This is a movie, which by any standard - whether the top rating is 4 or 5 stars, or 10 stars, or even 100 stars, rates a score of "1."

Both leads - Tillis and Clark - have had their own theaters in Branson, and both are extremely talented and engaging performers. Having lived in that area for several years, I had occasions to see both performing in their theaters, and to meet both at civic/charity events in Branson. In-person, both are also friendly, affable men - not always the case with prominent performers.

However, watching them act in a full-length movie, is akin to having to watch and listen to, say, Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman deliver a full-length concert singing 10 or 15 songs each. It would be enjoyable to see Mel and Roy "acting," or Robert and Dustin "singing," say, in a 10-minute SNL or MAD TV skit, or some similar venue, for the pure humor

  • but not for an hour-and-a-half or more.




Boost this one from its deserved single star to three - one additional for each of the leads, based on their career histories, and at least an affable approach to the on-screen proceedings.
