Audience Reviews for Road to Nashville
I'm not exactly a fan of country music, but I will concede that I actually liked this bizarre mess of a film. The film is mostly a compilation of songs (A whopping 38 in total) with only a thin string of a plot that just serves as an excuse to allow these performances to occur. While the film is a bit overlong and a bit excessive at times, it's a pleasant film for the most part with a decent selection of songs. If you enjoy country music of yesteryear, this film might give you something to watch, but this definitely isn't for everyone. Though I'm not a fan of country music, I found this to be a pleasant surprise.
ONLY for country music fans of the 50s, if you have a sense of humor and nostalgia for an America past.....GET THIS DISC, Y'all!! Definately NOT recommended for film critics and trendies, but for anyone else, a religious? experience.
Marty Robbins produced this turkey, so we get to see his face in much of the film.
An acting bomb, Doodles Weaver and others are the worst. They are all non-actors of course, so I guess we ought to cut this some slack. But anyway, see it at your absolute peril. Available in inglorious color and it's entire mayhem....

This whole thing is how NOT to make a movie. But the acts are too country retro for words. Thank God for the outlaw acts like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson that saved us from the likes of this. On the other hand, maybe not.
BTW, the 60% rating is NOT a judgement of the talent in the film. It is all about the quality of the making of the film. I had to allow some slack for the era this film was made, so it made a fresh by the narrowist of margins.
Comments one viewer:
"starts off corny. if you like country folks and music, i guess this is your kind of movie. actors suck."
