murder while enjoying country and western
7 February 2007 | by antonbrouwersSee all my reviews

This is a movie worth while to have a good look at. The plot is a bit strange: a songwriters' lawyer buys a detective agency for him as a tax deduction. He gets involved in a case which is under supervision of an employee (only employee) of the detective agency. The acting is good. Though what I didn't understand was why Sonny had to brake into his own office (which his lawyer bought him). Also going into a case on your wedding day is a bit overdone. But that doesn't decrease the performance of acting. I watched it 3 times and enjoyed every scene. Even Ronnie Milsap is in it and sings the stars from heaven. The end is tragic, but you will enjoy the last song "it's only temporary" sung by the "big boss". really in one word: "moving".
