Great Movie
9 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I've probably watched this movie twenty times, don't know why, but I really enjoyed this one. Leslie Anne Warren has always been one of my favorite Country Movie Actresses (Pure Country, The Songwriter etc.), and really liked her performance here. The song "Baja Oklahoma" written by Dan Jenkins is super but unfortunately have been unable to find it on a CD. Singing greats like Emmy Lou Harris, John Mayall and Willie Nelson's appearance at the end made it that much more enjoyable. John M. Jackson and Swoosie Kurtz's performances were also great. Peter Coyote also played a good role. Overall an underrated movie Wish they'd put this on DVD, I'd be the first customer.
