One Big Giant Anachronism, 11 April 2001
Author: AmericanPanascope from United States

My father was John Denver's photographer, and spent over 20 years travelling around the world with him. When he saw this, he called everyone he knew and was saying, "hey, did you see 'The Hal Thau Story'?" He then must have told me about 20-something anachronisms that occured in this film. I cracked up myself at the total lameness of John Denver's character talking in a voice that didn't even sound like him, and then lip-synching to crappy old recordings. It could have been good, but the director obviously had no idea who John Denver was as a person.
