I heard it was good, and it is, but not that good. FWIW, I am no fan of country music.

I saw the movie and I had liked it this is based on a true story I found the music good this is not for children to watch

Just watched it for the second time in the last year. Terrific movie and you see the characters and music of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and, of course Johnny and June. An excellent musical history lesson.

Brilliantly scripted and acted biopic of 'The Man In Black'. Phoenix and Witherspoon's performances were extraordinary, and they deserve huge praise for their singing as well (and I'm not a fan of country music). (If you enjoy this, you might also like: "Ray", the Ray Charles life story.) FIVE STARS.

I didn't listen to Johnny Cash's music at all before watching this movie. Afterwards, I fell in love with 'The Man In Black' and now I can't live a day without listening to one of his Classics. This movie is really great.

Great film! Enjoyed how the film showed how Cas, Carter, Elvis, Jerry Lee and others started out...could make a seperate film alone about those times. Witherspoon surprised me, I liked her in "Education", but the other stuff I've seen seemed like so much fluff. But here she was pretty amazing as June Carter..the music reminded me of when I was a kid of 5, the stuff my parents listened too.
