Do I like country music? Jesus, no. But I DO love movies about celebrities. Especially dramas. And I love rehab, too. Well, I've never been there... or suffered an addiction. Unless internet porn can be an addiction (which... it can be, I saw the True Life on MTV), but I love movies and TV shows and books about rehab and addiction. I even read "A Million Little Pieces" even after Oprah ripped the author a new asshole for lying about it being non-fiction. In short, besides country music, this movie looks promising.
And we all know Gwyneth Paltrow can sing. Anyone that saw "Duets" knows this. (Fine, I never saw it... and I don't know much ...aka: anything... about the movie, so I don't know if anyone else saw it, either.) But her song with Huey Lewis, "Cruisin" was all over the radios circa 2000. So the fact that her voice will be on screen (perhaps radios) again sometime soon makes my life that much better.
And let's face it - the woman can act. Especially in dramas. Perhaps comedies aren't her bag (Sorry, Shallow Hal...), but music superstars pulled out of rehab to refocus their career doesn't really state "comedy gold" to me, anyway... So, I think we're safe. To make the movie even more promising (especially to a younger crowd), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) stars alongside Paltrow and Tim McGraw as a young beauty queen turned country star. She may only have a few lines in the trailer, but the role seems like it could be a fun one. Perhaps even one that will be fun to re-enact when I'm intoxicated? Well, I can't go that far... I'll need to see the movie first.
