Somewhere in Kansas, Frank operates the Middle O'America Motel and dreams of opening a club where he'll sing his country songs. His wife Helen is disparaging, so when a scheming chanteuse is dumped by her loutish husband on Frank's front door, Frank is bewitched. In short order, though, the visitor (Julie) has dispatched Helen, set in motion a con for Frank's money, called her husband to come get her, and taken Frank's army buddy (just arrived for a visit) into the bathtub for some fun. Soon Frank is in over his head, just as Helen's twin sister comes for a visit and Julie's husband arrives looking for his wife. Is there any way out of this situation (and out of Kansas) for Frank?

unfunny and pathetic attempt at a coen style film.
this movie plays out like a moronic half-assed combination of surface level tropes aped from better movies like blood simple and Fargo and then slathered in country music, with none of the style or substance provided by the coen brothers. terrible script, terrible acting, ridiculous plot... bad all around. the music is bad, the lip syncing is horrible. the second girl who ends up "singing" the main characters songs looks like shes having a seizure during the scene when she wows us with her amazing voice. sweet lord i hated this movie. avoid at all costs unless you are morbidly curious about the kind of trainwreck that results when the director of bio-dome thinks he can make a real movie.
