At the very least, the film will not allow you to dismiss them as caricatures.
| Original Score: 7/10
...an instant classic.
| Original Score: 5/5
The Whites are very screen-friendly subjects even if it's for the wrong reasons.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
... a slow-motion human train wreck that ... the audience just can't turn away from.
Plays like a glossy episode of "Cops," celebrating bad behaviors and welcoming audience voyeurism.
Not surprisingly, music is a key component as the perils, passions and addictions are revealed.
| Original Score: 4/5
[It] loses some of its anarchic steam as it goes. Still, it's a dang good bet you've never met any family quite like the Whites.
| Original Score: 3/5
Its governing spirit, captured in the raucous music that punctuates the story (including songs performed live by Hank Williams III), is one of outlaw celebration.
Even those with a soft spot for The Dancing Outlaw will likely have a hard time warming up to The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.
| Original Score: 2/4
