25 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love films about southern living. This film is filled with clever humor and wonderful performances by Elaine Hendrix (AKA Etta which is also the name of my grandmother who is from Arkansas ha ha), Leann Rimes, Luke Perry, and The Sheriff (I always forget his name.) Believe me when I say that it is much better than a 4.7. It's not a critics kind of movie. This is a fun, light-hearted film about a small town with quirky characters. Be warned there is a little bit of sexual content, so I wouldn't recommend it for kids unless it has been edited. For an independent film, it is extremely well done. Compared to some of the other romantic comedies at the box office this is worth watching.
