good for a few hours of Saturday resting
11 March 2006 | by (Motown) – See all my reviews

I disagree completely with the other commenter, Holly's accent is just as good as those considered such great acting by Meryl Streep (which I do not, by the way.) I did not find it annoying NOR distracting (and yet I DO find Streep's awful accents BOTH) -- I've seen this movie twice and enjoyed it both times. It's a good story, the acting is well done and MAN that music by Marty Stuart and Wynonna is superb... that music should be on a CD for purchase. I recommend this movie for AFTER you've done some Saturday chores and just want to relax on the couch. I mean, what fun!! A woman who is "wronged" ha-ha finds her way into not only solving a murder but into new employment. It's rather encouraging, if you think about it. I'm not saying this is a classic film or anything but I am saying that if there's going to be a new kinda classic, such as LIFETIME classic, then this one qualifies!
