Jake, an aspiring singer from Tennessee comes to New York City and finds herself working in club owned by a sleazy guy named Freddy. It seems Jake is under contract, and Freddy doesn't want to let her go. So Jake makes a bet; that she can train anyone to sing, and if she does, he lets her out of her contract, and the guy she has to train is a cabbie named Nick. They go to her house in Tennessee, and Jake tries to teach him, but it's very tough. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Jake: Do you play an instrument?
Nick Martinelli: Yeah, I can sorta play a couple of chords on this organ I have at home. Hey, I'll tell you what, why don't you come to my house and teach me a new song?
Jake: Go to your house, huh? I suppose that's so you can show me your organ, right?
Nick Martinelli: Why do you think I'm conning you? I tell you I really do have this big organ!

Very Entertaining
21 July 2011 | by mterrebonne01See all my reviews

I have always like watching Stallone movies growing up. I did see this movie when it first came out but that was so long ago, I had to watch again. I don't remember laughing this much the first time I saw it. I bought the movie and love it. I think Dolly and Stallone did an awesome job. Very light hearted and hilarious! If you're in the mood for something not too serious, then this is the movie to see. Plenty of laughs! I mean when else do you get to see Stallone in a movie where he's not shooting people or boxing in the ring. Don't get me wrong, good or bad, I've loved every Stallone movie I've had the privilege of watching.
