Product Description

Joshua Jackson (The Skulls, TV's "Dawson's Creek") and Jaime King (Pearl Harbor) star in a hysterically rowdy look at small-town life and big-time trouble... deep in the heart of Texas. Also starringDJ Qualls (The New Guy, Road Trip), Matthew Davis (Blue Crush), Ryan Hurst (We Were Soldiers, Remember the Titans) and recording artist John Mellencamp (Falling From Grace). With a couple grand in the bank and a dream in their hearts, Earl Crest (Jackson) and his girlfriend Baby (King) plan their escape to Los Angeles from their hometown of Bennett, Texas. But a dim-witted cousin (Qualls), an ex-con and an angry drug lord threaten to derail their plans. Now, with just 48 hours to straighten things out, Earl finds himself in the middle of a mess - bigger than the entire state of Texas!

Amazon.com

Joshua Jackson of Dawson's Creek and ex-model Jamie (formerly James, Pearl Harbor) King are (Lone) star-crossed lovers in this broad rural romantic comedy. Despite the fact that they've recently become step-siblings, Jackson and King are in love and want to flee their small Texas hometown for Hollywood. A kink in their plan arises in the low-wattage form of King's cousin (DJ Qualls), who lands in hot water with the local mob after robbing a drug dealer. Jackson must now make things right with a host of unsavory criminal types and get King to Tinseltown. Jackson is personable as the reluctant hero, and King is easy on the eyes, but the rest of the cast (which includes Matt Davis, Thomas Haden Church, and John Mellencamp) mugs furiously, and the script rarely aims any higher than poking fun at Southwestern stereotypes. --Paul Gaita

I've never been to Texas myself. But if this is how normal Texans are, then give me a pair of steel toed boots, a flashy belt buckle and a shotgun, cause baby Texas rules! Lone Star State of Mind is one of those movies that forces you to take the giant stick out of your butt and stop looking so hard for reasons to hate a movie. The movie opens with two mentally incapacitated criminals, and i use the term loosely, robbing a pizza delivery guy with maxi pads on their faces, like not so fresh superheros. Sure, DJ Qualls and Joshua Jackson shined in this movie. Sure, Jamie King is probably one of the most gorgeous woman alive. But people, lest we forget the true star of this movie. One word. Tinker. Ryan Hurst deserves some sort of medal for his acting in this should-have-been blockbuster. Tinker is the kind of character that makes watching movies not only enjoyable, but necessary, just to make it through the day alive. I have to admit, when I saw Hurst in Remember the Titans, he was barely memorable. But his role in Lone Star will most definitely earn him a place in my list of most memorable movie characters. I suggest a sequel in which only Tinker stars. That's it. No Earl, no Junior, no Baby, okay maybe Baby. All in all, Lone Star State of Mind is an indy gem, and deserves to be credited as such. YEEHAWW!!...

My cousin brought this over a couple months back and told me to watch it. She said it was the funniest thing she's ever seen and I said "Joshua Jackson, funny?" and she said "JUST WATCH IT"...and she was right...this movie is downright histerical. Earl (Jackson) is engaged to his step-sister Baby (Jamie King, the hot former model) who is determined to be a soap star and thus is intent on moving to LA. They live in some rinky dink Texas town. Baby has a wayward cousin Junior (DJ Qualls) who she entrusts Earl to keep an eye on, but Junior is almost more trouble than Earl can chew. You see junior and his delinquent friend Tinker (Ryan Hurst from Remember the Titans) just robbed a pizza delivery boy, the only problem is that he wasn't a pizza delivery boy, but more like a drug runner for some important coke dealers and now Tinker and Junior (mostly junior) find themselves in deep $hit when these men want their drugs and money back. Earl then enlists the help of his gay best friend Jimmy (Matthew Davis) to help him deliver the goods that Tinker won't hand over. Problem after problem arises and someone loses a pinky finger resulting in some of the funniest dialog in movie history. I'm a huge fan of this film. The cast is spot on, and even though Jackson isn't funny in this movie (he's the serious hero type who hardly cracks a smile) the rest of the cast, including John Mellencamp as Earls hilarious stepfather (Baby's father), is downright brilliant!

I've seen reviews that range from calling this comedy "juvenile and unfunny" to saying that "the Actors involved mugged for the camera too much". First of all, aren't Actors supposed to mug it up in a comedy? Secondly, the characters in this comedy are dead-on. Maybe you have to be from Texas, but I bought this DVD the day it came out, and never tire of watching it. And as far as what have been called "lame stereotypes" of Southern people? Apparently you've never ventured into ANY of the small towns that make up not only Texas, but most of the South. No, all people from the South aren't idiots and screw-ups. Quite the contrary, most people in the South are very intelligent. They just don't feel the constant need to prove it to the World on a daily basis. The point is this is a "silly" comedy, and if you don't find that kind of stuff funny you won't like this movie. However, if you can just kick back and watch a VERY original movie that will make you laugh your a** off more than once, buy this movie. 'Nuff said.

Wonderful little movie , that I know you'll like very much. The cast is a perfect blend of subtle confidence and outlandish stupidity, making this fun to watch. All the actors are seen enjoying their craft , while making this production. I loved it so much , I had to buy the DVD, allowing me to watch it again and again , any time I wanted.
This movie is a treat I hope you didn't miss the first time it came around, But if you did, this is well worth buying, so you too will be able to watch it whenever you want, as many times as you want as well..

My best friend turned me on to this movie several years ago. We would watch it every time we had girls night. It is still as funny now as it was the first time I saw it. I cannot watch this movie without laughing so hard! Worth buying.

Lone Star State of Mind was recommended to my daughter and her friend years ago at Blockbuster by one of their employees. It has become a family favorite. Whenever someone new becomes a part of our family, it seems that they are initiated by watching this movie with us. It is one of those movies that you can't explain why it is so funny but it just gets you laughing. The one-liners and dead pan delivery are dead on and we quote this movie to death. This is the 3rd copy I have purchased to give to my children as they set up their own homes and collect their own movies. I hope you like it as much as we all do!
