Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unfortunately weak.
Rotten: Shana Feste's screenplay seldom rises above the level of daytime TV; the only actor who triumphs over her trite dialogue is Tim McGraw in a nonsinging role as Paltrow's husband and manager.
Rotten: [A] mixed bag of a country music comeback fable.
Rotten: If the point of Country Strong was to prove that Gwyneth Paltrow can sing, then mission accomplished. You don't need to sit through this two-hour melodrama to confirm that.
Great Movie with Great Music!
It's funny to me how people have a sense that they know what they're judging when they haven't even seen this movie..just because you see the word "Country" doesn't mean that it's all downhill from there. I do hair and make-up in the entertainment industry and let me be the one to tell you that this was an exact portrayal of what some artists go through. It hit my heart so strong that other than just looking at what recording artists do for a living, I look at them as the people they once were and long to become... Gwyneth Paltrow and the cast were amazing and gave it their all! The music speaks for itself and is one of those soundtracks that you can play over and over again. The Oscar nomination for "Coming Home" was a well deserved nomination! Truth be told, Great Movie and Great Music!
