This is an ugly film. And the only thing uglier is thinking about who on earth the filmmakers thought they were making it for.

A boisterously Tarantinoesque mash-up of cliches, archetypes and bodacious craziness in the tradition of Southern-fried '60s and '70s drive-in fodder.

If it has the right spit-in-your-face attitude, it has neither the stamina nor the wit to go the distance, although it makes it about two-thirds of the way.

Although artistically slight and thematically haphazard, it's enjoyably flashy.

It's unclear what drew the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Eva Longoria and Andre Braugher to this tepid grindhouse retread, but at least they liven up the proceedings whenever they're onscreen. Unfortunately, that's not all that often.

In all seriousness, I'm not sure whether to recommend "The Baytown Outlaws" as a guns 'n' glory time-waster or warn you off it as a piece of mendacious trash. So I'll do both.

A barrage of unbelievable stereotypes try to kill each other in Barry Battles's dispiriting exploitation flick.

Whenever The Baytown Outlaws shuts up and puts up, it makes a good case for its own existence.
