MAIN ST ( PG)
I read some place the cast of this film looks better on the poster than in the movie and that pretty much sums up everything about this production – it’s all surface. It’s a superficial and uninspired melodrama which centres on the residents of a small US town that has fallen on tough times. A big-time company sweeps in with a controversial plan to turn around the town’s fortunes. The direction and lazy scripting show no signs of subtlety – neither do a couple of the performers – and the various little subplots don’t really serve the central drama and themes.
Extras: N/ A.
