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 -- Dolly Parton's immense likablity makes this very slight film an amiable watch.
