At the beginning of the film, when Birdee and Bernice are leaving Chicago to stay with her mother in Texas, the two are driving on a freeway. They pass a bus with a billboard on the side advertising for the television show Birdie was just dumped on. The billboard reads: "Toni: She'll change your life!" See more »
When Birdie is working in the photo lab, she accidentally ruins a customer's pictures. She said she loaded the paper wrong. That wouldn't ruin the negatives. Negatives are processed film to expose an image, no paper is involved. See more »
Is this where you were "cream of corn"?
"Queen of Corn," honey. Three years runnin'. A feat unsurpassed in the history of Smithville.

This movie is a basic, down-to-earth drama. Sandra Bullock learns that her husband has been having an affair on an afternoon talk show, and she moves back home to Texas to start anew, and she finds new love while she's there. Not too bad, but it gets too slow and prodding at times, which is its only weakness. All in all, not too bad a movie. Just don't expect a classic, and you might like it.
** 1/2 out of ****
