Goofs

In the first scene, when Bobby Lee and Sue Ann are in bed together, the Tonight Show is on with Johnny Carson doing Carnac. When they finish making love, Sue Ann points out that it is past midnight. Carson is still on, which would be fine on the East or West Coast, but the movie is set in Texas, in the Central Time Zone, where the Tonight Show came on at 10:30 and would have been off by then.

No fun in this hot tub...
15 May 2016 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Builder of fast food restaurants turns the big 4-0 and loses interest in his sexually fired-up wife and their leering, stupid relatives; he takes up with a professional cheerleader, leading his spouse to try having a fling of her own. Terrible marital comedy, suggested by the 1977 Jerry Lee Lewis song written by Sonny Throckmorton, presents its characters as prosperous but ignorant hicks--and then asks us to relate to them! There's something to offend everybody in Carl Kleinschmitt's witless, worthless screenplay, while director John Trent fails to squeeze one honest laugh from the lowbrow humor. Meager attempt to turn intense character actor Bruce Dern into a commercial movie star backfires; with his hair darkened and blown dry, Dern tries loosening up, but he doesn't have a fun side to display (the rigors of a comedic performance prove too strenuous for him). No matter what he's doing on-screen, Dern is hyper-controlled to the point of snapping, and neither he nor the filmmakers can put this material over when the general approach is so heavy-handed. It's supposed to be wild and sexy and naughty, but desperation shows through like flop sweat. NO STARS from ****
