I remember enjoyed this movie long time ago, so I decided to watch it again hoping to have the same experience. I wish I didn't so I could keep the good memory, but things changed unfortunately.
Samantha Mathis as Miranda Presley, a woman from New York who moved to Nashville hoping to get her big break as country singer. I understood why she kept getting rejected, she didn't seem that talented. She wasn't bad, but she wasn't great either and that goes to the rest of the characters (Dermot Mulroney and Sandra Bullock), at least Bullock's character has an excuse! The only thing that I could enjoy a bit was River Phoenix as James Wright.
When I first watch the movie, I thought James supposed to act 'drunk' and careless, the way Phoenix portrayed and at that time I thought it was kinda cool. Of course now I couldn't help noticed that maybe the actor already dealing with drug problem that made him acted that way. Even Roger Ebert noticing that.
Of course, this one is also love story, or should I say love triangle? Still, not really enough conflict nor any development characters, and not too convincing as a story about people chasing the dream.
So, I guess this would be the last time for me to ever view this one ever again.
