I love this movie. First, I love music. It's one of my favorite things. Singing and dancing along to the radio. It helps brighten my mood no matter what is going on in my day. This movie has the same effect. River, Samantha, Sandra, and Dermot are all amazing in this one. I really like the songs in the movie. Plus, I get to hear the funny verses that Sandra sings, which is almost enough to make me watch it in and of itself.
This movie is about Miranda Presley (Samantha Mathis) moving to Nashville, Tennessee. There she gets a job working at a bar that features amateur open mic nights for song writers and singers to showcase their talent. While there she meets, Linda Lue Linden (Sandra Bullock). The two women become fast friends and even agree to share the same hotel room, as they are both trying to make it in the music biz. Then comes Kyle (Dermot Mulroney) and James (River Phoenix). These two men are at odds with one another, both vying for the attention of the lovely Miranda. James ultimately wins her affections, the two getting married in, of all places, an all night convenience store. There's drama, romance, heartbreak, and excitement, plus a bit of failed cow tipping. That's right those fools tried to tip a cow. However, they manage to make things works out in the end, with surprising results.
