A fair effort..
28 December 2002 | by (East Texas) – See all my reviews

The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies was a fair effort, but was setback mainly by the losses of Irene Ryan (Granny) and Raymond Bailey (Mr. Drysdale). Add to that the absence of Max Baer as Jethro.

However, the remainder of the original cast does perform the best they can. The addition of Imogene Coco as Granny's Maw is a proper way to fill the shoes of Ryan, and Werner Klemperer gives a hilarious performance. Yhr replacement Jethro, is nothing like the genuine article. Jethro's hillbilly accent was wonderfully delivered during the original series, and this imitation was a horrible, but noble attempt to bring the character back.

In the end, this movie is very much watchable, and worth viewing in its rare showings on television.
