Gwyneth Paltrow stars as Kelly Canter, a country superstar fresh out of rehab who embarks on a comeback tour across Texas.

Along for the ride are her not-so-caring husband/manager, James (McGraw); her lover and aspiring songwriter Beau (Hedlund) and ditzy country singer Chiles (Leigh­ton Meester).

Kelly is still recovering from her alcohol problem and the stress and drama that go on backstage might just push her over the edge and cause the whole tour to crumble.

There’s enough melodrama in Country Strong to put daytime soap operas to shame.

It’s like an episode of Dallas – everyone drinks too much and sleeps around.

While the acting is sound (and all the actors can sing) it doesn’t save the overly ­dramatic script and ridiculous dialogue. If you don’t like country music give this a miss.

Bonus: music video, deleted scenes.
