Unnecessary '90s remake has iffy humor, stereotypes.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

The Beverly Hillbillies is stupid to the max.

For nostalgia, watch the series in syndicated reruns for free; for the kids, just give them a good book. They'll thank you for it later.
