We should take it no more seriously than we would Bobby Long himself. Like the old professor, it talks such amusing nonsense.

This, incidentally, is one of the rare movies about authors in which the character's writing actually seems good enough to be publishable.

An above-average independent movie that gives us an interesting version of a popular indie theme: difficult parents and the fallout for their neglected children.

It's remarkable to listen to dialogue that assumes the audience is well-read.

Helmed by first-time feature director-screenwriter Shainee Gabel, the movie dawdles a bit and relies heavily on stereotypical Southern eccentricity. In the long haul, it wins you over -- although it does seem like a long haul.

It isn't until the movie's almost over that it becomes clear the many directions it takes are all important, because Bad Education is about making decisions that can't be reversed.

Qualifies, barely, as a guilty pleasure...with its generous scrapbook of literary wisdom and pleasantly overcooked performances.

The story seems a lot more like a true story than a work of fiction in many ways.

Marks the umpteenth comeback for Travolta. It's a modest one, but a comeback simply because it's watchable Travolta that doesn't reek of a paycheck grab.

A wonderfully literary film.

As a meandering piece of soft-hearted Southern gothic, A Love Song for Bobby Long is diverting enough.
