... probably the most slaphappily endearing low comedy since Russ Meyer's The Seven Minutes.

Parallax View

A simplistic affair with no delusions of anything beyond B-movie fun.

Audience Reviews for Thunder and Lightning


A good ol' Hillbilly-sploitation film brought to you by Roger Corman.
There is really very little to hate about this film. You can read the synopsis, but really all you need to know is that there's lots of down south attitude, chases, and great lines.
David Carradine isn't amazing, but he fits the role well enough, better that his dangly earring fits on him. This film is also jam-packed with great voice and character actors that you'll definitely recognize, especially Sterling Holloway, the unmistakable voice of Winnie the Pooh.
