It's not groundbreaking, but it's pleasant enough.

Like a small firecracker that turns out to be a dead as the city it depicts..Durham ought to sue for libel.

Main Street is an ensemble drama that functions as a display case for a range of regional drawls, from the authentic to absurd.

Sep 8, 2011 | Rating: 4/10

There's something interesting here at the core of the conflict, but the story is offered so little room to breathe, coming across rushed and undercooked.

This disappointingly suffers from some uninspired direction and a clutch of odd casting choices, which never work.

An unreleased movie is like a kind of commodity, one whose value goes up and down depending on the vagaries of circumstance.

Audience Reviews for Main Street

The film took me by surprise. From the trailer, I wasn't expecting much. However, after watching the film, I was pleasantly surprised by it. It is really good. I don't understand why it didn't get more publicity when it came out. The film kind of, in a weird way, reminded me of the movie Magnolia. I felt like I have seen this type of film before. It is well directed and great dialog in it. The film is well casted and everyone shines. I definitely recommend this film.

With a cast like the one this film has and a script based on a Horton Foote story it should have much better than the dull pointless mess that this one is.

Great cast....not so great script. I kept waiting for the meaning of it all. It never came. What a waste of some great talents. Not terrible, but definitely forgettable.

This is a tough one. Great cast. Great performances. Less than good story. It builds like an actual movie but never goes anywhere. Characters were interesting enough to make it worth checking out though.
