This movie was great. A really sweet love story. While I have to admit Jan-Michael Vincent isn't my ideal leading man, I thought he did a wonderful job in this movie. Kim Basinger and Jan-Michael Vincent play Kyle and Jodie, two lovers in a small Texas town. Kyle is a factory worker, whose favorite pastime is downing beers with his buddies at the local bar. Jodie his girlfriend is getting sick of the small town life and wants something more. Jodie's friend Caroline(played by country star Tanya Tucker) returns for a visit after hitting it big in Hollywood. Jodie's desire for a new surrounding grows even stronger than ever after Caroline's visit. She now has to decide if she's going to stay or leave to fulfill her dreams. Tanyna Tucker sings two GREAT songs in this movie. The rest of the soundtrack is wonderful too. Daryl Hannah is great as Jodie's little sister. If you liked Pure Country you'll like this movie. It shows the joys and frustrations of small-town life, honestly portrayed by a wonderful cast in this poignant, romantic movie.

While watching ‘Hard Country’ I was reminded of 1980’s ‘Melvin and Howard’, which is a film that I did not like very much. I didn’t care too much for this one either, although I think I liked it better. It wasn’t terrible, but it was also pretty dull for long stretches and didn’t really pack much into the film. When you have one of these character dramas, you need to have performances that bring you into these characters and make their plights feel honest and meaningful, but Basinger and Vincent just aren’t strong enough here, and the film’s general tone is one of complacency. You can sense it’s trying hard, but nothing is realty happening.

I am a die hard Michael Murphey fan, and adore his earlier stuff more than what he does now (although it is all good). I have to admit, I bought the movie for the soundtrack, for I can't get the sound track on CD, and the songs are too good to miss!

Having said that, I do agree with the other reviewers, it is just plain good stuff. It is well acted, has a decent story line, and anyone who liked Urban Cowboy or Pure Country will really enjoy this film. Country fans and love story fans alike will relate to the songs, story, and lifestyle this film brings to them.

This movie wasn't the greatest, it was very dry. Memory Lane would be the biggest drawing point, Kim Basinger young and almost forgotten Jan-Michael Vincent. The only reason I purchased this movie, my mother had a small part and I wanted my grandsons to see her.

I have loved this movie since it came out back in the 1980s. It has good characters and is well acted, along with some great music.
The Video arrived in a timely manner and is in better condition than described. I would recommend the seller.
