Welcome to small town America, 1945
16 July 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Screwball, wacky and somewhat off beat, this movie is really quite amusing in a weird way. In spite of what the critics say (and most of them are extremely hard and critical of this movie), I really enjoyed this movie.

The movie begins with some old, faded news footages from the end of the Second World War and continues with an equally faded black and white footage of a small town America that changes into color as the actual movie begins.

Unfortunately, in spite of this brilliant opening of the movie and in spite of the close attention to detail, like the authentic scenery, and even using vintage signs and ads, the movie has more than its share of flaws.

The movie has some really off beat humor, provided by Karen Black, Ruth Buzzi (veterin of LAUGH-IN) and the eternally lovely Tina Louise. And since it involves moon shining and fast cars, it sort of has the feel of a 1940's version of THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.

All in all, it is not a cinematic masterpiece, but it is an enjoyable movie.
