The title character Patsy, is named after Patsy Cline and during the film she refers to watching a film about the life of Patsy Cline - Coal Miners Daughter. But Coal Miner's Daughter is about 'Loretta Lynne'. See more »
This movie is worth seeing for the music alone (if you like Country).
The plot is predictable, the mix between reality and fantasy gets very annoying after a while. In spite of this, it is an enjoyable movie on the whole, due mainly to the charm of the main characters.
The stereotypical "Mum and Dad" are right out of a beer commercial (or a 1950s Australian film). In fact the whole movie seems to be more like something made in 1955 than 1997. With most movies made these days with the international market in mind, it is surprising that someone made one that would be totally confusing to anyone other than an Australian.
