    Let's face it a comedy/musical film about Dolly Parton making a bet to teach Sylvester Stallone country and western singing is never going to be a box office hit or a critics favorite, Plus the fact that I can't stand musical films not a fan on country and western music or Dolly Parton isn't going to help but Stallone makes this film easier to watch (But not to listen) His singing is not great but he tries bless him, Having said all that I can see why it could be a guilty pleasure it has some cheap laughs, It's fun and not half as bad as it sounds plus it looks like they had allot of fun on set so don't judge too soon but it's nowhere near a classic.

    Although there is a discernible plot, the steps along the plot are not discernible. Terrible acting and even worse singing are the most distinctive features of this hapless 80's film. Nevertheless, it's still kind of fun in a bad-movie, lighthearted way.

    Jake is a country singer that makes a bet with her manager: she will make a country singer out from any person in a period of two weeks. Since her manager can choose who the person is, he decides to choose a Nick Martinelli, a cab driver. From that moment, Rhinestone becomes a race against time. Well it,s not one of Slys best but not to bad.

    Wow, just when you think that Stallone gets a chance to act, he blows it by overdoing and bringing way too much energy. As someone who likes all music including country, some of the songs were decent. there were even some decent one liners that were actually funny. Parton and Stallone even have a decent chemistry together. But this movie was a bad fish out of water that was totally predictable and badly acted.
