Just a simple TV movie, but fans of LeAnn Rimes will enjoy it.
23 July 2012 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

It is amazing to realize LeAnn Rimes is 30 in 2012. I have been aware of her for over half her life, she was already a #1 recording artist when she was 14 years old. Over the years she is one of the singers I really enjoy, such a rich and powerful voice. Like a young Patsy Cline.

Well here she is in a made-for-TV movie, she is Holly Whitman , Chicago lawyer originally from a small community in Alabama. When her dad has an emergency admittance to the hospital she borrows her lawyer boyfriend's car (this becomes an essential part of the story) and drives nonstop to see her dad. Unfortunately something in small country road near home distracts her and she has a minor wreck, but enough that the fancy car needs body work and painting.

As it turns out the guy in town who does superb body work and painting is Shawn Roberts as Jay. He is handsome and level-headed, and nothing that Holly expected to encounter here. He is not your usual grease monkey and eventually Jay begins to make Holly forget about her boyfriend in Chicago. But he does show up unannounced and that creates more story twists.

It was fun seeing ancient Burt Reynolds, once a big "ladies man", playing Holly's old dad Wade Whitman . There is a running background story about a world-record bass in the local lake that Wade has been watching and coveting for years.

This is not a great movie by any means, in fact it is just "pleasant". I enjoyed it for LeAnn Rimes. She doesn't sing at all, she apparently is trying to make it as an actress and does a credible job. I don't see her ever becoming a top box office star but from her performance here I'd say she can do well in a variety of roles.

Filmed in Canada.
