It's about coming out as adult gay men in the south, and that is the story line. Sure they rented an RV to drive from Hollywood to Dollywood, and yes they did meet Dolly, but their screen play may or may have not been acted upon. They spent 5 yrs writing it? Hmmm. It's about the south not accepting gay males (or females? ... not mentioned) and even parents closing the door permanently in the faces of gays who came out. It is only about Dolly because the twin adult men who wrote it, saw Dolly as accepting of anybody (though I imagine she's not particularly out there campaigning for gays). It wasn't that great and the reviews and titles suggest it's more than it is. It was interesting, but not that much unless you are a gay man and want to feel part of something bigger, if you're alone out there. I have gay family members, I'm straight, and accept people for what they are. This was not a move track about Dolly or her music in any way, and one track states: This "ALSO"... is the WHOLE story line, not an "also":
"Hollywood to Dollywood" also addresses the issue of homosexuality, people's prejudices toward our sexual orientation (yes I am gay too) and the problem the twin's mother has in dealing with having two gay sons.
