'FOREVER MY GIRL': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
A romantic drama about a country superstar that returns to his hometown, after being gone for eight years, and reunites with the former bride he left behind at the altar. The film stars Alex Roe, Jessica Rothe, John Benjamin Hickey, Abby Ryder Fortson, Travis Tritt and Judith Hoag. It was written and directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf, and it's received mostly negative reviews from critics. I found it to be better than I expected it to be at least.
Liam Page (Roe) was a rising country star who was about to become famous, and marry his high school sweetheart Josie (Rothe), when he decided to leave his small town for good, and Josie at the altar. After eight years of partying, drugs, and fame, Liam decides to return home when his former best friend dies. Once he's home he runs into Josie, and everyone else he left behind. Lots of drama of course erupts from his visit.
The movie is a pretty clichéd, feel good romantic family film (with lots of country music). It's the type of movie I usually hate, but I found this one to be a little more interesting than some (because of it's commentary on fame primarily). I also think it's pretty well acted, for what it is, and not too overly cheesy or melodramatic. It's of course all of those bad things as well, but it's a little better made than most (and what I had expected it to be).
