A jewel of vintage Southern American Kitch
23 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is UNIQUE. Its so bad yet soooo good. Its rich with wondrous little moments found in no other film. And it has an authentic southern American quality that Hollywood often fails to capture. The vintage 70's south is crystallized perfectly in all its glory. This film is just plain fun for anyone with a discerning eye for tongue in cheek audacity. The characters are sharply contrasted against each other - very colorful, very animated, and the bad acting seems to do them a service. The main character, Wheeler, is the funniest/creepiest psycho ever. I mean, this guy is chock full of insecurity issues and they bleed right through the screen. If I ever met a guy this socially inept in real life I'd run away in a fit of giggle terror.
