Shut Up and Sing

Rated NR

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.
