Off-topic movie review: Country Strong

Saw Country Strong and got to watch Gwyneth Paltrow act like the train wreck Whitney Houston and then eventually die like Janis Joplin.

Oh, wait … Spoiler Alert …

Meanwhile, this scruffy-looking young guy mumbles his way through everything. Seriously, the whole movie the guy doesn’t move his lips more than a half-inch.

And then there’s the girl one with the southern accent …

And if I hear one more song about double-wides and pink flamingos …

But here’s the tell-tale sign that the movie is fake: during the concert scenes, all the seats are full and everyone pays attention and gets totally into the opening acts. I have never witnessed this in the real world. Never.

Other than that, of course, the movie is great if you like country music and predictability … which is kind of the same thing.
