Storyline

Holly Whitman and Carl Lindford are Chicago-based junior insurance lawyers working at the same firm and a couple in their personal life, although Carl seems more interested in his symbols of prestige, such as his BMW sports car and getting ahead in his career, than he is in Holly. Days before they are to enter court on what could be the case which brings them into the next echelon of the profession, Holly receives news from her irresponsible brother, Everett Whitman, that their father, Wade Whitman, has suffered a heart attack, Wade and Everett still living in their small hometown of Manion Lake, Alabama. Holly, borrowing Carl's car, heads down to Manion Lake expecting to make it back to Chicago in time for the opening arguments of the important case. The trip is also despite Holly and Wade being estranged, due to what generally disagreeable Wade sees as Holly turning her back on family their life in Manion Lake for the pretense of the big city, and Holly believing Wade providing no ...

18 August 2014 | by manitobaman81See all my reviews

The real centerpiece of the film is its acting; three performances in particular stick out. It's fun seeing Burt Reynolds as a ladies' man, but This is not a great movie. LeAnn Rimes is trying to make it as an actress, and she can do well in a variety of roles. The cinematography is stark and bare, with only the soundtrack adding some effect. The only thing that keeps it afloat is the sensitivity of the bilaterally desperately needy relationship depicted. From an artistic standpoint, there were some plot elements and character developments I didn't think were totally needed. They do however drive the story, which seemed to be their purpose, so I can accept them.
