According to her auto-biography "My Life and Other Unfinished Business", Dolly Parton states that she considers the soundtrack album for this picture as some of the best work that she has done. Parton also declares that the song "What a Heartache" is a personal favorite of hers, Parton having re-recorded the track twice since the movie, on both the 1991 "Eagle When She Flies" and 2002 "Halos & Horns" albums.

This is, hands down, one of the funniest movies ever made. Weather we laugh because of the jokes written in or because of how awful some of the movie is, it doesn't matter. Laughter is a good thing, and this movie generates plenty of it. I especially like the bits with the always entertaining Tim Thomerson, Jack Deth of the Trancers series. His turn as Barnett Kale is fantastic. Also showing a nice sense of comedic timing is the inimitable Richard Farnsworth as Noah, the father of Dolly Parton's character.
It is bad, it is cheesy, and it is side-splittingly funny.
And if you cannot appreciate my fashion sense, I resignate.
