Notwithstanding a knockabout performance by Jane Alexander as a Fort Worth floozy, Square Dance is do-si-dull.

There are so many small, well-crafted touches about the movie it`s painful to report that the whole is not quite the sum of its parts.

story can move you even if it's predictable, and that's what Square Dance accomplishes. It makes contact with its people, its land; it makes us feel for them; it hews out a slice of the earth, our earth, and makes it real.

It's so cotton-pickin' clichéd.

Nothing that happens comes as much of a surprise.

If I were to describe the plot of Square Dance, you'd likely laugh out loud. The movie itself denies even that pleasure. This is a weary morality play that sinks under the weight of its good intentions.

We, on the other hand, do-si-doze.
