      Movie Info

      Leaving her rural life in Arkansas, Shirlee Kenyon (Dolly Parton) moves to Chicago and seeks employment at a radio station. When a mix-up finds Shirlee sitting in as the host on a show for call-in advice, her common-sense wisdom wins over fans. Soon she's "Doctor Shirlee," an in-demand on-air personality, but, of course, she's lacking in the proper credentials, a fact that journalist Jack Russell (James Woods) already suspects. Will Shirlee be able to keep her new gig if the truth gets out?

        An okay romantic comedy with Dolly Parton and James Woods, who are a strange pair to have in a movie together in the first place. I saw this on TV a while ago, and it's a typical story. It's kinda funny at least, but overall, nothing special.

        Kind of funny and cute as mindless movies go. Takes place in one of those parallel universes that resemble our own but people somehow never really have to deal with consequences AT ALL.

        If you enjoyed Smokey Mountain Christmas (or are a fan of Dolly Parton and her career in entertainment), then this movie is a MUST HAVE.
