Movie Info

After a big-time country singer (Dolly Parton) brags that she can turn anybody in to a country-singin' star, she's out to prove she can live up to her talk when she recruits a cab-driver (Sylvester Stallone) as a country singer. He's scheduled to sing at a big-time NYC country night club and Dolly puts her ample powers to work in preparing her protege. ~ Rovi

Effortlessly living up to its title, Rhinestone is as artificial and synthetic a concoction as has ever made its way to the screen.

The center part of the film -- the country "training" sessions -- could have been fun if they'd been written with a satiric edge. Unfortunately, they seem to have been written with a blunt instrument.

As Mr. Stallone wends his way through barnyards and country cabins, the material retains some comic potential. But as the inevitable romance springs up between the two stars, their lack of rapport becomes all too noticeable.

This is a charming movie, spunky and full of surprising fun.

A country singer wagers that she can teach her trade to a New York cabbie, with predictable results.

Stallone has managed to squeeze himself into nearly every scene, banishing Parton to the sidelines, where she comes off like a weary hostess waiting for an obnoxious drunken guest to pass out so she can put the lampshade back where it belongs...

Audience Reviews for Rhinestone

Although there is a discernible plot, the steps along the plot are not discernible. Terrible acting and even worse singing are the most distinctive features of this hapless 80's film. Nevertheless, it's still kind of fun in a bad-movie, lighthearted way.

Saw this trapped on an airplane over the Pacific Ocean. Jumping out of the plane was considered. How Dolly got talked into this I will never know. The idea that she could turn Sly into a singer is preposterous, and the movie proves it. Total waste of time. money and talent (Dolly, not Sly.) It gets one star because Dolly is worth watching, even in trash like this.

Singularly unwatchable 80s "comedy" that's country & western cross between Fame and My Fair Lady. With Sylvester Stallone. Draw your own conclusions...

This is one of the worst movies you will ever see in your life. Not even Dolly Parton's chest could save it.

    1. Jake Ferris: Do you play an instrument?
    2. Nick Martinelli: Yeah, I can sorta play a couple of chords on this organ I have at home. Hey, I'll tell you what, why don't you come to my house and teach me a new song?
    3. Jake Ferris: Go to your house, huh? I suppose that's so you can show me your organ, right?
    4. Nick Martinelli: Why do you think I'm conning you? I tell you that I really do have this big organ!
