Goofs

In the scene at the wedding just before the dancing begins, Tyler Ross is talking with a redheaded lady. Then when the dancing starts you can see that lady dancing with an older man. The camera then pans to where Tyler, who is *still* talking with the same lady (who's also dancing) is taken by his sister to meet her new husband's great aunt. So the redhead is in two places at once! See more »

Sweet, but disappointing
12 February 2005 | by garbo-1See all my reviews

I have loved Andrew McCarthy since the 80's. He's always had a boyish charm that appeals to my inner teenager.

But, his portrayal of Tyler Ross, in Straight From The Heart, was a little disappointing. His actions seemed overly rehearsed and even a little forced. He just doesn't carry himself with that slow and easy cowboy grace that we've become accustomed to from watching such greats as Joyn Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. The script, as well, could have used some better writing, as the dialogue between the characters is often a little silly. Still, the movie can stand alone with it's familiar storyline, troubled hero, and happy ending.
