      Now Straight Talk is a movie with Dolly Parton that has some meat to it. It’s not quite the wonder that Nine to Five is, but Straight Talk is a good movie that has some real story to it.

      Shirlee Kenyon (Parton) maneuvers her way into a radio job, giving advice over the radio. People end up


      thinking she’s a doctor, and before you know it, everything has mushroomed into a giant mess. A reporter begins to suspect something isn’t right, and he goes after the truth. Predictable as it sounds, sparks fly between the two. I never thought of Parton and James Woods as a couple. It still feels odd ...

      • just thinking about it, but it worked. There was a surprising chemistry between the two that had the viewer wanting them to get through the obstacles and get together in the end.

        Michael Madsen is good as Shirlee’s louse of an ex-boyfriend, and there are other very nice performances from the likes of Teri Hatcher, Griffin Dunne, Jerry

        Orbach, and Jay Thomas.

        Straight Talk is a romantic comedy that has some charming qualities to it. Parton gets to do some real acting here, showing a bit of depth, though this movie was never intended to be a serious production. It’s entertaining and provides the proverbial happy ending, so you can’t go wrong by giving it a watch.
