Today it looks much better, and contains one of Eastwood's most openhearted performances.

It is a guileless tribute not only to plain values of plain people in Depression America, but also to the sweet spirit of country-and-western music before it got all duded up for the urban cowboys.
October 26, 2008
More of a curiosity piece for followers of Eastwood than a truly compelling story.

Eastwood took great pains in telling this story of an aging, struggling country singer...

One of the unnoticed treasures of the '80s.

The whole thing veers wildly in quality, and no Eastwood-hater should go within a mile of it; but few lovers of American cinema could fail to be moved by a venture conceived so recklessly against the spirit of its times.

Surprisingly sweet and mellow piece from Mr. Eastwood.
| Original Score: 3/5
October 23, 2004
This is a sweet, whimsical, low-key movie, a movie that makes you feel good without pressing you too hard.

August 30, 2004
The film comes across sympathetically but unconvincingly, as an attempt by a well-established movie tough guy to reveal his tender side.

Sweet and heartfelt.

September 2, 2003
Clint Eastwood's dust bowl drama Honkytonk Man is a sensitive road picture about a mostly luckless aspiring country music singer.

May 24, 2003
Uneven, indulgent and overlong, but, perversely, it still has a few good moments: the appearance of the some country greats, Eastwood's character trying to sing through his illness, the picturesque scenery.
