"A Prairie Home Companion" is a cringe-worthy Robert Altman movie because it lacks all traces of the director's former glory. You could blame Garrison Keillor but that would be giving him too much credit.
...the film is so busy coddling itself in colloquial humor and Keillor's conjured up diatribes that, from one Minnesotan to you, isn't funny in it's own right. The humor depends largely on whether or not you've been a fan of the original show.
