- Reviewed By An Amazon User
Shirlee Kenyon (Dolly Parton) an out-of-work dance instructor in a troubled relationship leaves her Flat River, Arkansas home to seek a better life in Chicago where she finds work as a receptionist at a radio station. In an on-the-job twist of fate she is mistaken for a talk show psychologist and put on the air to answer callers and address their troubles in something she knows all too well herself.....bad relationships. She becomes an overnight sensation but has issues dealing with her dishonest title, 'doctor'. An undercover reporter played by James Woods threatens to uncover her true and less than shining dirt-water background and butts heads with "Dr. Shirlee's" spurned and angry hometown boyfriend. Let the romance and comedy begin. Charming through and through with a heartwarming finale. A must-see.
"A Feel-Good Movie to Watch Again and Again"
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Montgomery, AL United States
I won't give the synopsis, but we enjoy watching this movie every year or so. It is sweet and down-right funny. I only wish Dolly had more lines and quips. I wish they had additional scenes on the DVD of her answering phone calls because she is really giving great advice with her special country charm!
This movie isn't easy to predict either. As soon as you think something is going to happen, BAM! Something completely different happens instead. I don't find it trite -- it's just good clean fun with one of America's Sweethearts.
My husband and teenage daughter like it too, so this makes a fun family film that all can enjoy. Go ahead and buy it -- If you like Dolly Parton and you like to laugh, I don't see how you can lose.

"Amazon Failed Me"
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Orlando
I'm sure the movie is just fine, but Amazon wasn't able to get it to me. I was purchasing this movie, along with another title, as a birthday present for my partner. It never arrived, despite the fact that it was marked as "delivered" by the USPS. When I spoke with a customer service rep, he said, "yeah, this happens all the time with the Post Office." They why does Amazon ship using the Post Office? It makes no sense. I never received the item, and I had to choose a different gift for my partner. Amazon failed me, and it will be difficult to ever use you again.
""Dolly's Last Movie""
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada
After Dolly stole "Steel Magnolias" from her co-stars, Disney offered her this movie, the first in which she received top billing. Dolly plays a radio talk show host who falls in love with a reporter who discovers she is not the doctor that everyone thinks she is. A light-hearted film, "Straight Talk" was written by Patricia Resnick who wrote the screenplay for Dolly's first film "9 to 5". James Woods co-stars, and Dolly has stated that he is the best on-screen kisser she has ever had. There is also a companion CD soundtrack to the film that is long out-of-print, but if you can find it pick it up; it features some of the best Dolly-penned tunes she has written. The movie was not big at the boxoffice but found a home with airings on television and untimately found its way into the hearts of viewers via video and DVD. A beloved Dolly movie, the last film in which Miss Parton has starred in. The DVD is barebones and comes in only this full-screen version. Chapter selections are also available.
"Typical Dolly Parton"
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Honolulu, HI, USA
This is a cute Dolly Parton film despite having been made years ago. It's fast moving and entertaining. I'd grade this a good B movie.

This was a good bye. I was pleasantly surprised. This video came in excellent condition and in a timely manner. I bought this as a gift and the recipient was very pleased and plays it over and over again. I would definitely buy from this seller again.
