Four writers worked on the script, and they all should hang their heads in shame.

It's thin stuff, but the ingratiating naivete of the characters and the aw-shucks friendliness of the cast are disarming, and it becomes easy to just let this go down as a country tune with some moonshine on the side.

Director Spheeris should be ashamed of herself.

Tomlin finds the humor and the heart in these hillbillies. The rest is just crude oil.

Imagine the dumbest half-hour sitcom you've ever seen, spin it out to 93 minutes by making it even more thin and shallow, and you have this movie. It's appalling. It's not even really a good version of whatever it was that made the TV series appealing.

Like the old show, the movie glides by quickly and pleasantly. If it's nothing fancy, it's mighty sweet.

Perhaps the clearest evidence of the dearth of original ideas in Hollywood is the constant need to regurgitate old, worn-out television series.
