Storyline

On a crowded subway, a real estate promoter convinces Patsy to put a down payment on a house in Paradise Acres, "heaven on earth." In a car loaded with cow, goat, and fowl, Patsy and her best friend Thelma take the long drive to their new house, only to find a small house on an otherwise sand-filled lot in the middle of a sandy wasteland. Patsy especially tries to make the best of it, but that night, a sandstorm threatens every man and beast in the area. Can the gals survive? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Wow...this was actually pretty funny.
6 September 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The film begins with a horribly contrived scene. While in a crowded subway car, Thelma tells her friend Patsy to be careful with the rent money and not to lose it, as it's their rent money. Who would say something like this? What would prompt this comment other than the fact that "One Horse Farmers" is a poorly written comedy? You KNOW that somehow the plot MUST involve them losing their money somehow! And, when Patsy convinces Thelma to invest this money in a farmhouse, you know that the film is exactly as you'd expect. The farm ends up being a total dump--a place that makes the home on "Green Acres" look like a mansion! The place is a giant dust bowl and is obviously worthless. While I never particularly liked the Kelly-Todd films, the sight gags used involving this dusty house were pretty clever...as well as quite complicated and as a result, very impressive to watch! I especially liked the scene where all their neighbors came to their home! Overall, this is not a hilarious film, but a very good one--something I could of sworn was not possible for this usually bland duo.
