Goofs

At 1:12:20 into it, Willowdean is walking quickly to the building for the pageant opening. Millie yells to her "You're LATE". Willowdean replies "Well I told Lee I needed my wardrobe by noon and he said 'I'm a designer sugarplum, not a magician'". This indicates it's past noon. But about 45 seconds later, when Willowdean's mom walks on stage, she says "Hello, good morning girls". It's no longer morning when it's past noon. See more »

Quotes

Ellen: Callie is doing the pageant this year. Will's mom is the pageant director. She was Miss Teen Bluebonnet in 1991.
Callie: Rosie Dickson's your mom? Really?
Willowdean: Far as I know.
Callie: Hey, maybe sometime Elle Belle and I could come over and I could ask your mom some questions about the pageant. You know, just casually.
Willowdean: Well, unfortunately, my mom's not home all that much. She's either at pageant meetings or at the nursing home wiping old peoples' butts. It's what happens to a lot of ex-beauty queens.

Good, but not like the book
7 December 2018 | by ramsayreaderSee all my reviews

The movie is a good, heartlifting movie with good music and enjoyable characters. Unfortunately it leaves out a lot of major characters and a lot of the book plot. If you haven't read the book you will like it even more, irregardless it is worth the watch.
