Hope Floats Movie Review

Mostly unwatchable story about now-a-huge-failure beauty queen Bullock who goes home to Smithville, Texas to live with Mommy after her husband dumps her on a shock TV show. Full of inexplicably wacky characters, all of whom are unlikable, except for Connick, who redeems the picture marginally. Really, really annoying and over-the-top with heavy handedness. I wish Whitaker would go back to acting.
