Like many other hopefuls, Rod McCall believes he has done enough to show he deserves a major-league chance.

As an executive producer of "Cheatin' Hearts," I have got to defend not only this film but all other carefully made, low-budget independent films that are the hopes and dreams of their totally committed writer-directors (" 'Cheatin' Hearts': An Achy Breaky Story," July 9). Defend them from reviewers that run amok over newsprint. This particular film was labeled as "country cornball" by Peter Rainer, as if there were something more countrified about it than the location. Maybe if he had just said corny I wouldn't be so upset.

With apologies to the good people of Columbus, Ga., Rod McCall hopes that after this baseball season he never has to see y'all again. Not that he doesn't like you or your town--he does. McCall thinks the folks there are right nice, and he loves fishing the local lakes and rivers. He just doesn't want to play another season for the Columbus RedStixx, the Cleveland Indians' Class-A affiliate.

"Sometimes life is like a country-Western song," says one of the characters in "Cheatin' Hearts" (selected theaters). Is this supposed to buy off how country-cornball this movie is? Country-themed films--such as the recent "Pure Country," starring George Strait--often attempt to be movie equivalents of the country-Western weepies on the hit parade. They're meant to fill out the heartbreak in the lyrics in the way that a novelization fills out a movie scenario.
