Is It Any Good?

This movie isn't all that entertaining, despite the plot's potential and the work of the great Katey Sagal. ALWAYS WOODSTOCK is about making choices, and even though Catherine seems to make a lot of iffy ones, everything keeps getting better and better for her. Get plastered? Not to worry: A gorgeous and kind doctor will end up being the one tending to you. No job when you move back into your hometown? All the right connections are apparently just waiting to enfold you into their embrace.

Don't even try to figure out how Catherine convinces herself that her new boyfriend is cheating or why she decides to dump him without asking about it. Or why the good doctor and she are even attracted to each other, given their tepid chemistry and thin storyline. In short, Always Woodstock isn't very believable.
