Storyline

Rock singer John Mellencamp makes his screen and directorial debut in this story by "Lonesome Dove" author, Larry McMurtry. The story, not too separated from Mellencamp's real life, finds him as a country music star whose meanderings and philandering has thrown his life into turmoil. Returning to his native Indiana to try to reestablish a normal life. Instead he takes up with an old lover (Lenz), ignoring his loving wife (Hemingway), and duplicating the lifestyle of his womanizing father (Akins). Written by John Sacksteder <Jsack@ka.net>

I love his music but this movie drug on and on and was extremely irritating. We really wanted to love this movie but just could not. The sound was uneven sometimes hurting my ears. There were bits and pieces of dramatic content that bordered on violence. This is not a love story in my opinion. It's drama and has dark elements which were unnerving. I cannot understand the good reviews. We watched it from beginning to end and felt that it was a complete waste of an afternoon. Perhaps it was the category of "romance" that threw me. I would have much rather watched some concert footage.
