Soul Doubt

Louis Schwartzberg aims for America's Heart, but mostly sticks to the surface

There are people out there who, more than anything, want to see a movie with no offensive content; one lacking in sex, profanity or even expressions of anger. If those are your only prerequisites, then never mind all the film's flaws -- America's Heart & Soul is one of those rare movies that's safe for you to see. John Mellencamp was apparently so impressed that he composed a theme song on the spot and gave it to the filmmakers for free (the tune, "The World Don't Bother Me None," is exactly the kind of eagerly inspirational number that wins Oscars). But if you prefer some story to your cinema, or even any kind of coherent focus, seek the dream elsewhere.
