Fired from her job as a dance teacher and unappreciated by her unemployed, beer-swigging boyfriend, Shirlee (Dolly Parton) packs up and leaves Arkansas for Chicago.
Hired as a receptionist at a radio station, she mistakenly gets put on the air as a radio talk show psychologist. Using her life experiences, she serves up son down-home, common sense advice.
There's no doubt about it, Dolly is unique. With her three inch spike hells, buxom figure and bouncy attitude, her presence brings a smile. She's a modern day Betty Boop.
James Woods costars as a newspaper reporter who, at first, wants to expose "Dr. Shirlee" as a fraud, and then falls for her.
Expecting Woods to be uncomfortable in a light-heated film, he surprisingly went with the flow and had some fun with his part.
Dolly sings some lively songs, there are a few laughs and Paton and Woods are engaging together, what more could you ask for?
