The movie was supposed to be called "Grace Under Fire", but that was rejected because of Grace Under Fire (1993). So the movie was eventually named after the song "Something To Talk About", popularized by Bonnie Raitt. The version in the movie is sung by Therese Willis. The song was composed by Shirley Eikhard.

"Something to Talk About" is one of those movies I can watch time and time again and never tire of. It appeals particularly because it has so many elements I love in a movie -- dancing, powerful women, horses, sexy men riding said horses, humor, fighting, making up.
Not to mention a cast, writer, and director that imbue the film with a sense of high quality. Relationships between a myriad of characters are explored and to satisfaction. Even minor characters turn in great performances; for example, Grace's Aunt Edna, who shares a secret that leads to a hilariously dark moment for Grace and Eddie. Kyra Sedgewick steals every scene she is in and makes me wonder why she isn't a bigger star. She had chops in this film. She was thoroughly enjoyable.
Callie Khouri and Lasse Halstrom made a memorable movie with "Something to Talk About." Worth watching and laughing over and over.
