Review

Our Score
Sheer heaven for country music fans, with Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson as former singer-songwriter partners, who reunite to take on unscrupulous elements of the country music biz. The former is a C&W superstar, while the latter has clung on to his wayward lifestyle. The usual cocktail of drugs, booze and sleazy industry professionals is enlivened by the requisite musical number. But while this loose and wandering trifle isn't in the same league as Robert Altman's Nashville, which covers similary territory, it's still an amiable and entertaining work from Altman protégé Alan Rudolph.

Summary

A singer finds himself caught up in a bad contract, and enlists the aid of an old friend to find his way out of it. Drama, starring Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.
