  • 5 stars "best movie ever :)"
  • 2 stars "I must admit i am really surprised the ratings are so high for this film. Paltrow blubbers through the whole movie with mascara running from her eyes 80% of the time. The male lead looks like he (a) has to shower, shave, cut and comb his hair. Tim McGraw is completely wasted. The music is good and Paltrow is a strong singer...great concert footage at the end. Generally a poor effort."
  • 4 stars "A lot better than I expected! I'm a sucker for emotional movies, and the music was good as well...on replay on my ipod now."
