Movie Reviews

Dolly's valley aint blue!
rjdavis1975 | culver city, california United States | 09/29/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this movie was on lifetime and i thought it was great. then i bought the dvd and it's super-spectacular. she does a nice accoustic version of "wildflowers" and there's this weird easter egg where if you hilite her eyes and press enter then you hear only the music and the soundeffects. pretty strange."
Highlight for many occasions

"This film is a blend of raw humanity and brutal honesty. It was so refreshing to see the issues delt with done with so much style and not the usual sentimental [stuff]. As a huge Dolly fan and a director of performance myself, I have only this to say: Yes, Dolly is not a Liz Taylor, but few performers has ever reached her level of honesty in character and emotion when it comes to playing any character. Instead of boring crocedile tears, Dolly shows us inner pain - as does this whole film. This is a movie for people that understand what it means to hide your pain so that the show can go on. Deeply moving and profoundly liberating if you are able to leave soap operas behind you for a minute or two."
True Dolly Style

"Touching, simple, real-life like story, wonderful movie, with gorgeous music with Dolly sounding like an angel. Like every other Dolly fan I would love for someone somehow to publish
a copy of "We Might be Inlove" as it has never been released outside of the actual movie, and there is no soundtrack...
As for the "Editorial Review" The movie was WRITTEN based on Dolly's song "Blue Valley Songbird" off her "Hungry Again" Album, and the whole bit is to explain Leanna's origins, and how she came to be where she's at.... and to explain what's REALLY been holding here back through the years, so if you get beyond your opinion that Dolly can't act you'll see there's another depth to this story.... Highly recommended to anyone who loves Dolly, music and or Romance!!!"
Not what it seems

"This is actually not a movie. It is a concert strung together with glimpses of a tyranical father and scenes with a controlling boyfriend. After 30 minutes of having these scenes repeated, we have got the idea. There is an urge to say, "Okay, okay, now move on to something else!" But no. It's another 55 minutes of the same scenes and glimpses telling us the same things. There is one event only, after 85 minutes of film, in which she finally sees what the audience has seen ages ago: that her boyfriend is like her father. She sings for a record company and then--bang--another concert as a star.

As a movie, this has to rate two stars.

For Dolly fans and for people who like rockabilly, this will be worth the price.

So, know what you're getting and be sure what you want. For Dolly AND a movie, I recommend "Unlikely Angel" or "Straight Talk" or even "Rhinestone".
