Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Spirited performances by the two teen leads, along with plenty of country songs and an emotionally satisfying though predictable story, should appeal to young Nashville fans, particularly girls. Willie Nelson appears for a big number. Wrestling star Shawn Michaels shows up in a cameo, and to add some name value to the cast list. Other than that, it's all up to Bausch and Zuehlsdorff to carry Pure Country, Pure Heart, and they do just fine. Ronny Cox, a familiar character actor who's had a rich career, gets to be a musician for this one, and he obviously enjoys every moment. The movie isn't original, but it's entertaining enough, the music is fun, and resolution comes easily. Tweens and up.
