I also saw this in the theatres expecting something borderline and walking out thinking it was one of the better films I've seen in a long time. Never was aware that Garrison Keilor had this real radio show going on all these years but its transformation into a movie is without a doubt a stroke of movie magic. Not normally a fan of Robert Altman who tends to gather large casts of great celebrities into long, drawn out films with virtually no plots. However, this is truly an exception. GK's script stays faithful to his radio show while the varied cast adds life to characters. The film starts out slowly and you never know just where its going to go but by the end it all gels and you walk away feeling good. This is definitely the sleeper hit of 2006. Surprises? Normally - Woody Harrelson whom I find irritating is not so much in this, Meryl Streep really can sing and Lindsay Lohan as the typical "I hate life" daughter who appreciates her mom and turns macabre into silly fun at the end. Highly recommended.

What I liked about this movie, and as much as Altman describes in the bonus features - is that is was done ala 'documentary' style. And much like The Rolling Stones 'Shine A Light' and/or Birdman, the viewer suddenly feels part of the show. And/or has an exclusive backstage pass. Virginia Madsen and Tommy Lee Jones as the literal 'good and evil' represent the deeper questions. Not only to the shows existence and upcoming demise, but Garrison's own psyche and spiritualism. What is 'good' may actually be tragedy. What is 'tragic' may turn out to deliver good. And Garrison is the timelessness between the two. Apologizing for what shouldn't have happened, and being totally accepting of what should happen. Kevin Kline as the bumbling Phillip Marlowe-esque character Guy Noir threw me at first. But much like Film Noir, he truly represents the old and the new. Out of place, but in sync with everything. A compassionate Inspector Clouseau of the theater. Yet, as nutty as all those characters and sub plots may sound, it's Garrison's delivery of the show and the amazing talent that recreate it for him that is the most enjoyable. Everyone just fits together. By the end, you don't want to see them busted up by any means. But as we all know, good can be mean at times. And someones always waiting in the wings to take the show in a new direction.

I just saw this movie in the theatre, and found it one of the most boring and irritating movies I have ever had to sit though. I never saw characters and actors so smug and filled with their own importance! If I had not been with a group, I would have fled to the exit about one hour in. As it was I had to sit though the entire six hours! (Well it seemed that long!)

Kevin Klein was so mannered and irritating that he is unwatchable! and what was that nonsense about the angel of death who flitted in and out with no purpose?

Meryl Streep can actually sing, but who in the world told Lily Tomlin she could? In short, it was a self indulgent mess that I could never be paid to sit through again, let alone buy. If my family wants to hear me scream, they just whisper "A Prairie Home Companion" in my ear.

A Prarie Home Companion is a gem of a movie. Sub plots, corny and clever humour, great band, great acting (even by brat Lohan), leaves you wanting more - as well as leaving some plot lines unresolved.
