A funny entertaining drama with a lot of TEXAS in it.
30 January 2002 | by handyguySee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie when it was first shown and I'd like to see it again. Leslie Ann Warren is wonderful as Juanita. Of course the thrill is with Juanita getting to sing HER SONG with Willie Nelson! My only regret is that no one (to my knowledge) has recorded the title song.
