Sad Reunion
5 May 2004 | by (Independence, Missouri) – See all my reviews

While it was a treat to see the old cast back together, the film suffered from "Reunion" fever that plagued many of the reunion movies of the era. Hatching a silly plot involving spies and trying to stretch it into a two hour movie was a huge mistake.

If they had bothered to watch the old series they would have known that the deviation from the original was killing what they were making before they even filmed it!

The old show consisted of wacky characters that the audience cared about, not some crazy plot that drags the characters out of the places we like to see them in. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it didn't even show the interiors of the characters homes, and in the case of "Green Acres," the old Haney Place (the Douglas's farm) and Druker's Store were practically characters in themselves.

Besides that, in updating us on the town of Hooterville they forgot to include anyone from "Petticoat Junction," or even the Shady Rest Hotel, for that matter! This was a cookie-cutter production designed to cash in on nostalgia for the series. The actors were great, the script a shambles, and sadly the last time we got to see Pat Buttram, Alvey Moore and Eva Gabor act together.

They should have left the good work that was the original series..alone.
