Soap without suds

Author: genregirl from Australia
21 April 2004

With it's convoluted plot and cardboard characters, XXX's & OOO's is little more than a cliched soap opera.

A tale of four wronged women, each connected to the Nashville country music scene, XXX's & OOO's uses all the standard soapie devices to get it's point across. There's birth and death, marriage and divorce. There's corporate shenanigans and blackmail, alcoholism, wayward children and controlling parents. There's the woman making it in the mans' world, a court case, a rousing church ceremony, a grand opening and even a car crash. All of it, however, amounts to very little.

I rented this movie because I'm a fan of Paul Gross (due South) and although he looks pretty and gets to sing, even his presence wasn't enough to keep me interested. The flashback sequences are little more than cringe-worthy music videos, the characters aren't at all engaging and I could see every plot twist a turn a mile before it happened. I found myself hitting the fast-forward button on more than one occasion and still managed to keep up with the various plot threads.

If you have an interest in country music it might be worth a look. Otherwise, don't bother.
