Storyline

A moonshiner has been given protection by the local sheriff. When the sheriff is bought off by a crooked local businessman, the moonshiner gets busted. He tries to flee, but he is shot by a sheriff's deputy. The moonshiner's car careens off a road, and he ends up dead. The moonshiner's adult daughters try to make ends meet on the family farm, but the bank (incidentally, also controlled by the same local businessman) forecloses on the property. Left with few options, the photogenic daughters decide to exact revenge on anyone who has wronged them in the recent past. They also carry out an elaborate plot to rob the local bank.

Trivia

One of the motorcyclists in the race sequence is in fact an unbilled Steve McQueen. He took on this job of a motorcycle stuntman out of boredom after not being in a movie for several years. He was paid less than $200 for his work. See more »

Not enough Dixie
27 February 2003 | by (Athens, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Two Georgia girls get fed up with it all after their moonshiner father is killed by a local deputy. This is the most light hearted revenge film I think I've ever seen. Warren Oates keeps the movie from sinking, but one has to wonder why he's even in the movie. His character could be left out and it wouldn't really change the story at all. One of the major flaws of this film is that appears to be filmed in California, while it is set in rural Georgia. Anyone who enjoys southern literature knows that the South itself is a character, and it is hard to duplicate that "character" in California. During the car chases, we see sand flying around, as opposed to red mud, and the "small town" looks more like urban LA. I often forgot I was watching a movie set in the deep south. Lee Frost is a great B-movie director. He realizes he's not making epics and is able to keep his movies moving at a reasonable pace, while avoiding such b-movie cliches such as excessive exposition. It's just too bad he couldn't shoot the movie on location in the south. The funniest part of the movie are the "No Help Wanted" signs hanging in all of the shops of the small town. I don't think I've ever seen a "No Help Wanted" sign, but I thought they were a great idea in this movie. If you want to see a better Lee Frost movie, then watch "The Thing with Two Heads." If you want to see a great Warren Oates film, watch "Cockfighter," also set in Georgia, and filmed in Georgia. "Dixie Dynamite" is a good example of a women's revenge movie, but a poor example of a Southern women's revenge movie.
