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.

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

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.

With films like these, it's a wonder studios still think it's a good idea to regurgitate the past.

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

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