Seriously Red is a fun film that cashes in on the zeitgeist's love for Dolly Parton while giving audiences an important lesson in self-love. Some jokes might feel energetically weird, such as Red (Boylan) being fired for inappropriately touching her co-workers (drunkenly grabbing men by their genitals) and said touching becoming a running joke. But most of the film is a story that can resonate with most audience members when it comes to learning self-love and appreciating yourself. The impersonations of Parton and Loggins are also quite good, selling the fantasy of Red and Kenny (Webber) being at the top of their game. Overall, Seriously Red can teach audiences about the power of self-love while making them laugh and relive their Parton nostalgia.
