Trivia

The band that appears in the film, with the exception of John Doe as Earl, is George Strait's real band, "The Ace-In-The-Hole Band". In the scene after Buddy lip-syncs on stage and the the band argues with Lula (Lesley Ann Warren), the three band members who prominently have lines ("If we speed up or slow down, he can't keep up!" "Buddy Jackson?" "Are you out of your mind?") have been with Strait since the beginning of his career. See more »

If You Like George Strait...
9 October 2001 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

This is quite simply a movie that will be enjoyed by country music fans. Pure Country is a throw-back type of a picture. Simply put, there's nothing to take away from this film. It either makes you feel good, or you don't like country music. If you DO like country, then sit back and enjoy, as this film is NOT meant to be taken seriously.

George Strait stars in this film about a musician who is at a crossroads. As his career has become bigger, the less control he has over himself. In a moment of clarity, he decides to "take a walk" to find himself, leading to a better understanding of himself, as well as his finding and falling for a girl.

This film holds no surprises and it doesn't try to. It simply tries to entertain, and that it does, at least for a George Strait fan.

True, the acting leaves MUCH to be desired. But honestly, if you are watching this film, the LAST thing that you are thinking about is Oscar winning performances.

This film is a throwback to the days of yesteryear and the singing cowboy. No one took those films seriously, and neither should anyone take this one seriously either. Just sit back and enjoy.
