Big-screen rehash of the corny 1960s TV series, with the backwoods Clampett clan striking oil and moving to Beverly Hills, where they're prey for sharpie Schneider and his girlfriend (Thompson). The actors playing the family are earnest and enjoyable, but the script (by four writers) is more lamebrained than the sitcom ever was, with smarmy sex jokes thrown in for good measure. Even worse, director Spheeris doesn't seem to know how to stage a gag.
She is the only reason why I've seen this movie 5 times. In the first half of the movie she plays hill billie girl with some disgusting habits, but after she dressed herself into nice red dress she's glorious. This movie is poor and most of time you see just stupid grins.
