"Redneck Love Triangle"
6 November 2020 | by Kamurai25See all my reviews

Decent watch at best, probably won't watch again, and can't recommend people that watch this unless they're just into racing and have run out of movies to watch involving racing.

I have such mixed feelings about this movie. I honestly want to like it, having a sweet bundle of reconnection stories at its core, just presented in such an awful manner. I'm not saying that the "southern, poor, redneck" angle was a bad choice, but it could have been done in a more positive light. Having it be an idiot-redneck comedy was more painful than funny when it came down to it.

The cast was actually pretty well selected, everyone hitting their marks, but I'm still not over Noureen DeWulf not being Jasmine, and to she her and the rest of the cast in such narrow roles, odd roles just felt very forced. Enough so that the movie brings it to your attention as part of the intended humor, but it is more distracting: making me think more about the movie when I was actually trying to turn my brain off and enough the movie.

The story, the cast, the production, the general comedy are all fine, but for whatever reason, most of it just doesn't land.
