Gwyneth hits a dull note...

Country Strong review

Clichés fly in Shana Feste’s musical melodrama, as vodka-ravaged singer Kelly Canter (Gwyneth Paltrow) is pulled from rehab by her husband/manager (real-life country star Tim McGraw) to go on tour.

Country? Definitely. Paltrow’s pipes are on-song. Strong? Not so much: the interplay between Kelly, hubby and the young singers (Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester) is so soapy you’ll see bubbles.

Featurettes on cast, costumes and songwriting, but the original ending is a bum note.
