      Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune "Patsy & Loretta" compresses 18 months of a tragically brief friendship between two country music legends into one pretty good biopic. Oct 16, 2019 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media The script is weak in parts. Some dialog doesn't ring true, and some of the ways the movie shows their parallel lives are more confusing than helpful. But it's a nice, friendship-affirming choice for teens and up who can handle the mature themes. Rated: 3/5 Feb 28, 2022 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation A brisk (OK, rushed), sentimental behind the glamour gloss of a bio-pic. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 4, 2022 Full Review Matt Roush TV Insider A brisk, sweet, touching and, naturally, tuneful tribute to female friendship is directed by Callie Khouri.

      Jeff M The very best thing I can say about this Lifetime movie is that it makes the viewer appreciate much more two wonderful movies from the 80s - COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER, the biopic about Loretta Lynn, and especially SWEET DREAMS, the underrated biopic about Patsy Cline. When compared to either of those theatrical experiences, this film pales in comparison in virtually every conceivable way. I did appreciate the effort to concentrate on the relationship between Cline and Lynn, but it comes across rather superficially with repetitive scenes in which the two get together, discuss outfits and complain about their abusive husbands. COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER touched upon the Cline/Lynn friendship, and did it much more effectively and efficiently in much less time. Also there are scenes here that directly contradict scenes in the theatrical film, which makes you question its authenticity. Both actresses have a couple moments in which they shine, particularly Hilty, who bears a striking resemblance to Cline at times. That being said, neither performance feels particularly inspired. Incidentally, the movie was directed by Callie Khouri, who won an Oscar 30 years ago for writing another, MUCH better female relationship movie - THELMA & LOUISE. There is a groovy rendition of BLUE MOON OF KENTUCKY at the end which I could listen to for days, but other than that, this is a textbook example of how 99.97% of TV movies falter when compared to their theatrical counterparts. If you have an interest in either of these legends, check out COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER and SWEET DREAMS instead.
