Movie Info

A sweet, innocent and none-too-educated Southern girl (Dolly Parton) gets a job as a receptionist at a Chicago radio station and through a series of mix-ups ends up on the air as the station's new on-air psychologist. Fortunately, what she lacks in schooling, she makes up for in common sense and soon becomes a national sensation. Trouble comes when jealous rivals begin questioning her credentials.more

Audience Reviews for Straight Talk

An okay romantic comedy with Dolly Parton and James Woods, who are a strange pair to have in a movie together in the first place. I saw this on TV a while ago, and it's a typical story. It's kinda funny at least, but overall, nothing special.
