Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lange and Harris, dangerously well-matched, give us lovers whom only success could sunder."
‑ Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times
"There isn't the sense of a well-shaped structure in this movie; there's no clear idea of what the filmmakers thought about Patsy Cline, or what thoughts her life is supposed to inspire."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Beautifully celebrates the spirit of country singer Patsy Cline."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The two main performances are excellent: Lange plays the singer without a hint of condescension to her dreams of 'a big house with yellow roses', while Harris is persuasively menacing, with an inventively foul mouth."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Director Karel Reisz and screenwriter Robert Getchell create a tightly woven drama with two strong main characters and a number of fine supporting roles, and the love story at the film's center is convincing."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Jessica Lange plays Cline and gives her friskiest, most intriguing performance to date."
‑ James Sanford, James Sanford on Film
"Miss Lange makes herself a perfect physical extension of the vibrant, changeable, enormously expressive woman who can be heard on these recordings."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Patsy Cline musical bio hits true notes"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Lange's performance as tragic country crooner Cline, whose life was brought to a premature end by an unfortunate meeting of her plane and a mountain, is the main reason to watch this lively biopic."
