Storyline

Jed Clampett and kin move from Arkansas to Beverly Hills when he becomes a billionaire, after an oil strike. The country folk are very naive with regard to life in the big city, so when Jed starts a search for a new wife there are inevitably plenty of takers and con artists ready to make a fast buck.

Trivia

The message on the computer that Jethro leans on in his scene with Ms. Hathaway reads: "As computer technology continues to push forward at an accelerating pace, public virtual reality theaters will become the centers of entertainment. The next century will see the demise of film as the defining creative outlet for society and there" (the sentence abruptly ends there) See more »

Goofs

From Pearl's talk with Jed after he's struck it rich, it's clear that the Clampetts are ignorant of modern conveniences, yet Granny later makes reference to a telephone as though she has used one her entire life. See more »

Quotes

[Jethro and Cousin Pearl are driving in the truck to Jed's place]
Cousin Pearl: Jethro, did you take care of those old brakes like I told you to?
Jethro: Yes, Ma, I pulled them off the truck yesterday. The new brakes should be coming in the mail next week.

not terrible, but it unfortunately led to terrible things
30 September 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It's become a cliché that modern adaptations of classic TV shows are among the worst movies of all. "The Flintstones" was simply a BAD movie in every way! While there have been a few bright spots ("The Addams Family" and "Charlie's Angels") pretty much everything else has been execrable.

This modern adaptation of the Clampett brood has some funny stuff but mostly isn't worth the time. One could make the argument that "The Beverly Hillbillies" is half-homage, half-parody. Even so, this was a letdown for Penelope Spheeris after "Wayne's World". It was interesting to see Jim Varney in a non-Ernest role, though.

Also starring Cloris Leachman, Erika Eleniak (the girl kissed by Elliott in "ET"), Lily Tomlin, Dabney Coleman and Rob Schneider.
