What kind of accents are these?
19 December 2004 | by kash1058-1See all my reviews

Where is this movie supposed to take place? I live in Tennessee, and I have never heard accents like those actors were using. The fake accents took away from the believability of the movie, and I lost interest. When filming a movie about southern rednecks, some research should really go into the accents. Every time I watch a movie like this, it trips me out how fake these accents are. I saw Reese Witherspoon in a movie when she was younger that was based in the South, and her accent was perfect. Why? Because she is from Nashville and knows how southerners talk. How about using actors from southern areas when making movies like this? Tony Danza needs to stick to driving a taxi in New York. I'm glad I had my remote control handy for this one.
