Unnecessary '90s remake has iffy humor, stereotypes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 13, 2008
With films like these, it's a wonder studios still think it's a good idea to regurgitate the past.

An endearing revival for TV's favourite hicks.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 13, 2008
Four writers worked on the script, and they all should hang their heads in shame.
May 13, 2008
This big-screen expansion boasts one of the richest comic ensembles in recent memory, working well under Penelope Spheeris... About all that's missing is a point.

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.

It's fitting that The Beverly Hillbillies is based on a popular sitcom, given that the film feels perfectly suited to the small screen.

Was this really necessary?

You knew it would be awful and it surely did not disappoint. The few stray chuckles seem to arrive by accident.

Tomlin finds the humor and the heart in these hillbillies. The rest is just crude oil.
January 1, 2000
Perhaps the clearest evidence of the dearth of original ideas in Hollywood is the constant need to regurgitate old, worn-out television series.

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.
January 1, 2000
Don't get me wrong. This is not cerebral humor. It's just that there were a lot of different paths this movie spin-off could have taken and the low road is not one of them.

The Beverly Hillbillies is stupid to the max.
