Critic Reviews for Hollywood to Dollywood
Casually charming road trip doc about aspiring screenwriters desperate to meet their show biz idol.
Amiable and upbeat though it is, the documentary "Hollywood to Dollywood" lacks a compelling reason to see it.
What it does minute to minute is often less interesting than what it represents.
You have to admire a beloved entertainer who declares, with apparent sincerity, "I have more guts than talent."
...[the brothers are] charming, personable, and forthright, the kind of people you'd like to have a beer with-or, for that matter, go on a road trip with...
Audience Reviews for Hollywood to Dollywood
Less fun than the premise would suggest, "Hollywood To Dollywood" is a narcissistic road trip lacking focus...and soon runs out of gas. Filmed on low quality film (video tape) and lacking professional lighting, the project is difficult to enjoy. Although the subjects of the documentary are likable, at times the film seemed to be part southern gay bar travel guide and part therapy session. I don't know how many times the Lane Brothers declared that their mother must accept them as they are if she wants to be a part of their life, but the frequent proclamation was made tedious by the brothers' apparent inability to grow past their acceptance issues throughout the course of the film. In the first quarter of the film, award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black comments that the script the brothers want to deliver to Dolly Parton is overlong and lacks focus. That critique applies equally to their contemporaneous documentary. Nevertheless, there were several instances in the film that provided insight into the culture of the Bible Belt and LGBT people's place in that culture, and that makes the film somewhat worth seeing.
