This documentary chronicles the hard times had by the Dixie Chicks after lead singer Natalie Maines made her infamous “embarrassed that our president is from Texas” comments at a 2003 London concert. While I support Maines’ right to speak up—expressing opinions that have become more mainstream in recent years—this band takes themselves a little too seriously. It seems that every song they wrote after the London concert has a “Woe is me!” theme, spouting off about how hard it is to be a Dixie Chick these days. That said, their music is decent, and the film is most certainly entertaining. Maines has no problem speaking her mind, and that’s a trait on full display in this movie. She’s a fun personality to observe (the other two Dixie Chicks … not so much). The fact that people threatened Maines’ life for speaking her mind is frightening, and it’s covered in this movie. George W. Bush himself makes a humorous appearance.
