Product Description:

Naive country gal Shirlee Kenyon comes to the big city seeking employment and accidentally lands a job as the host of a popular radio talk show. Overnight, the lovable hayseed is transformed into Doctor Shirlee Kenyon, a self-help guru with a huge following. But Shirley's phenomenal success is threatened when a tough Chicago reporter starts nosing around for the real story behind her sudden rise to fame. Shirley must conceal her lack of professional credentials as the wily reporter pursues her romantically in an attempt to get the scoop.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Straight Talk
When down-on-her-luck country girl Shirlee Kenyon (Dolly Parton, STEEL MAGNOLIAS) walks through the wrong door at the right time, she accidentally becomes Chicago's newest talk-radio celebrity and turns the Windy City's hottest radio station upside down! With her homespun wit and down-home advice, Shirlee immediately wins listeners' hearts -- but causes hilarious confusion for her ratings-conscious boss (Griffin Dunne -- MY GIRL) and comical havoc for the investigative reporter (James Woods -- 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS) trying to uncover her mysterious past! If you're looking for no-nonsense advice on what hit movie offers you pure entertainment -- you'll love every comical minute of STRAIGHT TALK!
