Did You Know?

Trivia

Jennifer Aniston, who produced the film, used a number of Dolly Parton's classic songs on the soundtrack, since the main character Willowdean is a huge Dolly fan. Aniston also got Parton to write some new songs, including the theme song, for the film. See more »

Goofs

At 24:54, while Willowdean is reading Lucy's pageant application form, the application date, Lucy's age and Lucy's date of birth are visible. The date of birth that is shown is 5/5/79, which is incorrect. It should have been 5/5/77, assuming that Lucy was 16 years old in 1993. See more »

Great movie, great message!
7 December 2018 | by mike-68415See all my reviews

This movie really conveyed a positive message. Love yourself for who u are. The acting was great and it was done in a way that was not preachy! I think any of us with self esteem issues should see it.
