Ugh. I have a lot of respect for John Denver and his music, but only a true "huge fan" could stomach this movie. Chad Lowe has made a farce of John Denver's life. John's frequent Muppet co-stars would have brought more believability to both the acting and (especially) the singing. Even surrounding Chad with strong performances by Kristin Davis and Gerald McRaney can't redeem this movie.

If you can get past the tragic comedy that is Chad Lowe's portrayal (or betrayal) of a serious, enigmatic, and earnest man, the weak dialog and generally poor writing emerge. Save yourself and spend the time you would have wasted watching this movie by listening to John Denver's music while you wait for a decent movie about his life.
