Audience Reviews for Heart of Dixie

Not the best movie I've seen, but it was ok. I spent most of the time looking at the locations. The greater chunk of the movie was shot in Oxford, MS and The University of Mississippi campus. Being an Oxford resident, it was fun knowing the locations. As far as the movie goes, I think it was well told in the spirit of 80s movies. The acting was fair, but the accents were awful. It wasn't an unbearable movie to see, but it could have used a little more character development and closure at the end.

This movie has a soft spot in my heart because it was shot in my hometown using my high school band and a couple of schoolmates of mine as extra. Kudos to Stacy Jackson for landing a part in this film.
