Editorial Reviews

Aspect Ratio: 1.78:1
When down-on-her-luck country girl Shirlee Kenyon (Dolly Parton, STEEL MAGNOLIAS) walks through the wrong door at the right time, she accidentally becomes Chicago's newest talk-radio celebrity and turns the Windy City's hottest radio station upside down! With her homespun wit and down-home advice, Shirlee immediately wins listeners' hearts -- but causes hilarious confusion for her ratings-conscious boss (Griffin Dunne -- MY GIRL) and comical havoc for the investigative reporter (James Woods -- 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS) trying to uncover her mysterious past! If you're looking for no-nonsense advice on what hit movie offers you pure entertainment -- you'll love every comical minute of STRAIGHT TALK!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie, but DRAB DVD package :( August 12, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you've seen Straight Talk, you're no doubt a fan. This light-hearted movie is such a pick-me-up! I just love finding a movie I can watch several times and still laugh out loud!! I just love the scene where she loses her $20 bill on the bridge and James Woods comes to the "rescue"! The soundtrack is even good with songs written and performed by Dolly.
The DVD falls short though. No extras, no inner liner notes and it's ONLY available in full screen - YUCK!! Hollywood Pictures Home Entertainment should be ashamed of themselves for putting out such a poor product. Maybe this film wasn't a total blockbuster, but it sure deserved a better presentation than what it got.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dolly film ever! July 17, 2002
By Dallas
Format:VHS Tape
Yes, It's true. I am a diehard Dolly Parton fan, but if I wasn't I would still love this movie. Dolly's natural charm and humor comes to play in this rags-to-riches type of story. This is a must see!! Dolly is hilarious. This movie is a five star plus. You definitely won't regret seeing this. I don't care what the critics say. By far my favorite movie ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good.... But No Extras! November 19, 2003
I loved this movie! Shirlee Kenyon was a down on her luck country girl, when a mistake turns her into a big time radio doctor. I thought that her boss was kind of an a hole... He goes by the impression that people who have been married 3 times are losers, or those that have something real to say, He would write them off as losers..
This film shows off Dolly's spicy side of things! She had quite a few one lines... "I am like a one legged man in a butt kickin' contest!' Plus you get to see an early appearance of Terri Hatcher! (Lois & Clark The New Adventures of Superman)
I would like to have seen the trailer. as well as the music videos and even a commentary would have been nice... Aside from that, I still love the film....

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT TRANSFER IN 1:78 - 16 X 9 WIDESCREEN April 2, 2011
Some stores are already selling these locally. I picked one up yesterday, and the transfer is wonderful. Even though it is not posted on Amazon as of this writing, rest assured it is in 1.78:1 - 16x9 widescreen enhanced ratio. But, there are no extra's at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable comedy February 1, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Dolly Parton is utterly delightful in this corny, syrupy but immensebly enjoyable comedy. Her unlikely romance with James Woods is actually quite interesting as it is easy to see how Dolly's charm could permiate even the most jaded people. Sure it's not very original and it is very lightweight but it's got an old fashioned Frank Capra kind of sweetness to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Decent Blu Transfer April 14, 2011
I came across this title in my local Target the other day and I was honestly surprised. Straight Talk is a great film, one of my personal favorites, but it's definitely not a title I would see as high on the list for a Blu-Ray transfer. So initially, I was wary of getting gipped by a sub-par release. Priced at $5, however, I figured I would take a chance on it. I'm extremely glad that I did. The transfer isn't sparklingly stunning as the latest movies in theaters, but it is most definitely an upgrade on the DVD, which I've owned and watched many times. Close-up shots are especially clear, the image doesn't exhibit too much instability (most of the poor quality is limited to the opening credit sequence), and there is very little dirt or debris to be found in the image. The sound was also decent and perfectly capable for the type of movie Straight Talk is. It is limited to the front speakers, however, so don't expect to be completely submerged in sound. The soundtrack is clear, to the point, and it get's the job done. All in all, if you were ever a fan of this movie, I highly recommend the upgrade. I was pleasantly surprised and I think others will be too!

4.0 out of 5 stars From the author of Tales of Ancient Xenar July 8, 2004
I don't consider myself much of a movie watcher, so its rare for me to review a movie. But this film has earned a rare honor of having a review done by me. I have to say that hands-down this is one of Dolly Parton's best performances (better than 9 to 5 and far better than the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.) In the film, she gives Chicago radio listeners good old southern down-to-earth advice. I wish the city I live in has a radio columnist like her. But I'm sure a lot of you who have seen this film and enjoyed it agree with me. We all should have an advisor like Dr. Shirlee (oops, I mean Shirlee.)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feel-Good Movie to Watch Again and Again March 3, 2010
I won't give the synopsis, but we enjoy watching this movie every year or so. It is sweet and down-right funny. I only wish Dolly had more lines and quips. I wish they had additional scenes on the DVD of her answering phone calls because she is really giving great advice with her special country charm!

This movie isn't easy to predict either. As soon as you think something is going to happen, BAM! Something completely different happens instead. I don't find it trite -- it's just good clean fun with one of America's Sweethearts.

My husband and teenage daughter like it too, so this makes a fun family film that all can enjoy. Go ahead and buy it -- If you like Dolly Parton and you like to laugh, I don't see how you can lose.
