COUNTRY CRUSH REVIEWED
“Country Crush” finds two friends stopping off in the country. The gals are off to become great country singers, but they become in a seemingly “April Love” style story riff that leads to musical antics, modern War melodrama and relationship interminglings. People find love, lose love and you realize that Gene Simmons’ daughter looks more like her mother. Good for her to beat the Meg Griffin curse. Yeah, I’m dodging talking about the movie. That should tell you how good it is!
Over the course of 96 minutes, I came to wonder why every Musical golden period is truly sullied by things like this. For every “La La Land”, you’ll get 10 of these. Just because you can throw a few singers together, it doesn’t mean that everything is a musical odyssey through the modern relationship. The film plays with headspace of a 16 year old who has something really deep to say about the real America. While there is a modicum of talent on display and the film doesn’t quite peter out, it never gets started either. But, it’s something the kids can watch without the grandparents blowing a fuse.
