Some movie posters for this film featured a long blurb that said: "She's bet everything, and we mean everything, that she can turn this New York cabbie into an overnight sensation. He has other things in mind. But he's never had a trainer like this one!" See more »

This one was quite an embarrassment to Sly, as he's often said while interviewed. I like Dolly Parton & they no doubt had their fun making this film but I was as shocked as so many of Sly's other fans were to see him doing things here that are so un-like him & what he's 'expected' to be! So much of it was 'un-cool'. Yet there were some tender moments between him & Dolly. All in all, if these 2 wanted to do a film together, they needed another vehicle. It seemed Sly moved over in Parton's 'territory' when she should have moved on over to his if they wanted this to work. Of course, that's just my opinion. Rent this one if you want to laugh at Sly.
