DVD Review: Country Strong

Thelma Adams
21 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Gwynnie tries — and is so trying — in a twangy country soap Boozy country star Kelly ( Gwyneth Paltrow ) attempts a comeback in this drama. Paltrow nails the vocals — but it’s too bad she can’t sing and act simultaneously. Her mascara-smeared, angst-ridden character strains, and fails, to tug on audience heartstrings.

Country Strong

DVD Verdict
5 April 2011

With crooning and cliches, 'Country Strong' is pretty weak

Las Vegas Weekly
5 January 2011
  • Excerpt: If we must have movies about country singers, could somebody at least think up something for them to do other than be washed-up alcoholics? Following in the footsteps of 2009’s Crazy Heart —a genial cliché-fest that coasted on Jeff Bridges’ Oscar-winning charisma— Country Strong stars Gwyneth Paltrow as fading superstar Kelly Canter, who begins the movie in rehab following an onstage tumble that resulted in a miscarriage.

  • Excerpt: COUNTRY STRONG The Courtney Love of country stars, Kelly Canter (an inconsistently twanging Gwyneth Paltrow), has been forced by her spectacular onstage meltdowns into rehab. There, her décolletage decked out in black lace and a bling cross, she jams in more than one sense with singer-songwriter-janitor Beau ( Tron fox Garrett Hedlund) until her husband, James (actual country star Tim McGraw, who inexplicably doesn’t sing until the closing credits), drags her on a...

Country strong

tros kompas
22 February 2011
  • Excerpt: ‘Country strong’ gaat over alcoholisme, countrymuziek en liefde. Heel vernieuwend is het allemaal niet, maar Gwyneth Paltrow speelt prima als de verslaafde zangeres Kelly Canter, die na een ontwenningskuur weer op tournee gaat met een jonge, rijzende ster. Veel tussenstops op hun tournee brengen oude herinneringen terug, en die zijn niet allemaal positief.
