I can't think of anything I didn't like about this movie. Annette O'Toole was superb in both her acting and singing, and I feel she "did Tammy Wynette proud". I always enjoy learning more about the private lives of my favorite singers, and it's important that the details be as close to real life as possible when they are depicted in a movie. From what I've learned, this movie did just that. The details of her life and career, from being a hairdresser to her introduction on the stage next to George Jones, who later became her husband, was inspirational. I found it to be uplifting in that, even though in a bad marriage, and with 3 children, she had the determination to make a better life for her family. Her marriage to George was later dissolved, but country music fans continue to see them as one of the great loves never to be forgotten, and this particular movie captures the essence of that love, and why we love them so much. I am a fan of both Annette and Tammy. Unfortunately, we won't be seeing any more of Tammy, but I do look forward to more Annette movies and appearances...she's wonderful!
