Trivia

A sequel to Pure Country (1992) had been planned with George Strait Lesley Ann Warren and Isabel Glaser reprising their roles from the first movie. It was to be released about two or three years after the original, but because the first film fared so poorly with audiences, the plans for a sequel that continued the original's story were eventually scrapped, so director Christopher Cain decided to do an in-name sequel instead.

My 367th Review: Beyond schmaltzy - even Country fans are going to see through this hokum
10 February 2011 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

The original Pure Country is a fun sentimental romantic movie with some great honky tonk and ballads - not so this new version. It has a low budget Heaven Can Wait meets new country vibe that is pretty darn awful.

The plot is the first fault with angels and a gift of voice that is beyond corny in its representation, the second fault is the corn does grow as high as an elephant's eye - we just get all the country clichés and though the original has some heart, this has only saccharine - and almost comes across as,(take a deep breath), fake. Nearly anyways.

All in all, I was kind of looking forward to this; the original is actually pretty moving and with its "A Star is Born" plot moves along nicely - this sequel is just a mess.

I'm loathed to say it, but maybe you should give yourself the real gift this one time and give this a miss....
