Well, it looks like the New York Times panned Honeydripper, a movie about the birth of Rock And Roll in Mississippi. Of course the movie is fiction it is not based on anything that really happened in Mississippi, but what was probably happening all over the south during late 40s and early 50s. It is also a movie about Jim Crow, which hopefully will open some eyes to people who think the south was some idyllic wonderland, and it certainly wasn't at least not for African Americans.

As I have said before, never pay attention to a bad review, if you like the music, actors, or just the time period go see the movie!!!!! Don't let some lazy reporter, sitting in an cushy office in the New York Times make your decision for you! Check it out for yourself!!!
