Listening to all her callers didn't do the trick for me. I left the cinema feeling more depressed than ever. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- What's really wrong with Straight Talk is a failure of nerve. The screenplay is so painfully conventional that it's clear nobody involved with the movie wanted to push it into new ground or let it take chances. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- "cheerful comedy, well-played by Parton"
Rating: 3/5 -- Dolly Parton's immense likablity makes this very slight film an amiable watch.
...[Parton is] irresistible....[A] good supporting cast...

But Shirley's phenomenal success is threatened when a tough Chicago reporter starts nosing around for the real story behind her sudden rise to fame.
