'A vehicle for Toby Keithâ?� is about all that needs to be said. The most uncritical, red-state fans of the ridiculously imposing country star will get exactly the sort of thinly plotted, poorly dialogued, feel-good flick they expect, while anyone else will wonder why this film deserved a green light. Things that don't surprise: a prevalence of Ford trucks, Keith's monotonous delivery and the implication that anything ' fractured families, alcoholism, the pain of death ' can be solved by a week in a small Tennessee town. Things that surprise: a Woggles poster on a wall, a subtle anti-government message threaded through a pro-troops subplot and the utterly desiccated plastic surgery disaster that is Burt Reynolds' face.
