Reviews
Mine: Lots of talent on screen, but not much to show for it. Not really bad, but never goes anywhere. You have to wonder who thought that making a movie of this old TV show was a good idea.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: 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 are earnest and enjoyable, but the script (by four writers--count 'em--four) is more lamebrained than the sitcom ever was, with smarmy sex jokes thrown in for good measure. Even worse, director Spheeris doesn't know how to stage a gag.
