Ho-hum good ol' boy movie
20 December 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

In recent years, B movie producer Roger Corman has been making product for television networks like the SyFy channel, but not many people know that he had started making product for television several decades earlier. "The Georgia Peaches" was made for American television as a series pilot. Seeing it, it isn't hard to figure out why this wasn't picked up for a subsequent TV series. The movie has decent production values (it was shown in theaters overseas), and Dirk Benedict, Tanya Tucker, and Terri Nunn make appealing leads. But the majority of the movie is dull. There isn't that much action, and with it being made for TV there is no swearing, sex, or nudity on display (though the female leads don't appear to be wearing bras in some scenes.) Watching it, you'll wonder why this TV movie was resurrected for DVD when there are so many better made-for-TV movies out there that are languishing on shelves.
