Much better than I expected. Would probably be enjoyed more by older folks.

Gotta love Garrison! Never miss him on his annual Seattle appearances!

Morally offensive, crude, vulgar, and gross. In other words, standard issue Keillor. This movie is a disgusting piece of trash. GK has always been an insipid self-promoter, and this hateful movie -- which functions at about the level of a Toonces sketch on the Victoria Jackson-era of SNL -- depends entirely on an audience of numbed intellectual failures nodding along as whoopee cushion jokes crusade over the abyss. No wonder Altman died shortly after completing this wretched motion picture -- died from shame. Even "Quintet" had more integrity than this bomb.

What a treat by Robert Altman, well done. Based on storyteller, humorist, and radio personality Garrison Keillor's program that is still going strong.

Two negative comments complained because there was no plot - OF COURSE there wasn't because it's not that kind of movie and that's also why it can be enjoyed over & over for the sheer joy of it! Even the caste had fun!!

I loved every minute of it hundreds of times. The music and sweetness of innocent times calmed and charmed.

Boring. I turned it off in 15 minutes. I don't like movies that are created on demand. They present many stars but there is no space for them. And usually don't have a plot whatsoever.

I have this movie in my home collection and I think it is one of the best.
It is a great time spender for one who wants to spend a quiet night at a movie.
Nice to slow life down a bit.

Coarse Language: Some coarse language in the songs, but not a lot
