Logan Lucky (****1/2) is Ocean’s on a budget

This film is a perfect Sunday afternoon flick. Low commitment and it doesn't cure the world's ills. There are some touching moments like the last time you hear that John Denver song. There is some amount of overdoing it with the accent, especially on the peripheral characters. It's a minor quibble, though. If you like movies, but aren't shooting for the moon, this is it. Where else are you going to hear Patsy Cline in a bar?
