a fair homage to John
7 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

While this account, from a creative standpoint, could have done more justice to John Denver, the events and places as they transpired provided a fairly true-to-life story of John's legacy. Chad Lowe was seemingly unfit to play the part of John Denver, as the mannerisms and lip-sync attempts were modest at best. The shining star of the production was Kristin Davis as Annie Denver. My biggest regret is that the sequences were filmed in Canada and not in John's hometown (and mine) of Aspen, Colorado. Additionally, two hours is not nearly enough time to chronicle the beautiful life of this artist.
