Quite a surprise...

When I sat down to watch the 2022 movie "Seriously Red", I must admit that I wasn't really harboring much of any expectations really. Why? Well, I mean a movie about a Dolly Parton impersonator, how much contents could there possibly be to that?

But I opted to watch the movie, giving the movie a fair chance and the benefit of the doubt. And I am actually glad that I did, because writer Krew Boylan and director Gracie Otto put together a very enjoyable and entertaining movie here.

The storyline is nicely written by Krew Boylan, whom also coincidentally starred as Red, and it is a storyline that takes the audience by the hand and gives you a heartfelt experience that is guaranteed to put a smile on your lips. I was genuinely surprised with the story here, and I have to say that it was good entertainment from start to end.

I wasn't familiar with the cast ensemble in the movie, except for actor Bobby Cannavale, but they had a great cast and the actors and actresses put on good performances to bring the movie to life on the screen. Leading actress Krew Boylan really carried this movie phenomenally well with her performance.

"Seriously Red" is a movie that is well worth watching and sitting down to spend 104 minutes upon.

My rating of "Seriously Red" lands on a six out of ten stars.

Worth a watch even if you're not into Dolly.

I don't like movies were they sing all the time, I hate karaoke so impersonators are not on my favourite list either and I don't particularly like music from Dolly Parton even though I know some of her famous songs like anyone else I guess, and even for a comedy I didn't laugh much but I still was entertained by Seriously Red. More as drama with a lot of singing and performing, but not cringing to watch. The impersonator of Kenny Rodgers was the funniest character of the bunch. His duets with Dolly Parton were worth a watch. The acting was the good thing about this movie, no one terribly failed even not with the impersonations. Just don't expect an hilarious comedy.

When is Australian Film Making Going to Move on?

The trailer to Seriously Red is a little deceiving. It portrays this film as more comedic than what it actually is, and more endearing than what it is.

As an Australian, and a film maker myself, I was quite embarrassed by this film. I wanted to walk out numerous times. When are we going to move on with portraying Australians in this kind of light?

I can't quite put my finger on it. A mixture of Twee and Ocker. Is it really necessary now? We are in 2023? We have moved passed The Castle and Muriel's Wedding. And I don't think we need to 'sell' Australia to an overseas market as a bunch of idiots.

The storyline is cliche, a daughter dragged down by her single mother, in a dead end job. Oh don't forget the daughter is a bumbling fool on top of that, oh she's a red head too with the obligatory best mate who idolises her but she mistreats.

Then of course she worships Dolly Parton and as fate has it, she is offered the chance to be a Dolly impersonator.

Things really do not get any better as the story goes a long.

I had been looking forward to Seriously Red for sometime. And if done "seriously" it could have been such a good film. Everything was such a let down. The acting was subpar, the directing was blah, the costuming was not great. I would definitely not recommend this to anyone. And I truly hope for Australian cinema that this does not make its rounds overseas.
