Broken Bridges (2006)
Critic Consensus: A cliched attempt at a feel-good drama, Broken Bridges is schmaltzy, predictable, and stiffly acted.
When a fading country music superstar Bo Price (Toby Keith) returns to his hometown for the funeral of his younger brother, a reunion with his high-school sweetheart drags the pain of the past into the present day and soon promises to change his life forever.

Critic Reviews for Broken Bridges
Country star Toby Keith makes his acting debut in this rickety heartland drama, which was produced by Country Music Television and panders shamelessly to the traditional-values crowd.
It's obviously intended as a star vehicle, but Broken Bridges turns out to be a rattletrap jalopy for country music performer Toby Keith.
A limp, timeworn tale of a drunken has-been country star (Keith) and a TV reporter he had and lost (Kelly Preston) who meet again after returning home because of a tragedy.
When you can get just as good on the Hallmark network, why drive all the way to a theater?
Broken Bridges is one of those movies where most scenes start with a character staring out over a pond, sitting on a porch, or looking at an old photograph, just waiting to reminisce with whoever sidles up next to them.
Audience Reviews for Broken Bridges
"Keith plays a country singer who has fallen from the spotlight" wheee doggie! he really had to get in character for this didnt he!
We've all seen these stories before - drunk performer turns his life around, reunites with his estranged girlfriend and daughter and everyone lives happily everafter.
Sweet and musical. My kind of movie...
