In the backstage scene after the 1972 performance of 'Take Me Home Country Roads', a fan can be seen holding an LP of the album 'John Denver's Greatest Hits Vol. 2'. This album did not come out until 5 years later however in 1977. See more »
I like John Denver's music and, ultimately, that was the only thing I liked about this film. Chad Lowe, though a fine actor, I thought was miscast. Not once in the entire film could I "suspend disbelief" and buy him as Denver, especially in John's later years when his 2 older children were teens/young adults and John was 50-ish. Lowe looked even younger than his own 32 years; never mind portraying the 50-ish father of 2 teenagers!
I also found the writing/dialogue to be stale and cliched and scenes/events oftentimes rushed, packing zero emotion. It was more like watching actors do re-enactments on those biography shows than a film.
