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. Written by
When the Clampetts are eating at the pool table, Tyler arrives and goes to kiss Ellie May's hand. She flips him over and it appears that Tyler knocks a pool cue over on his way to the ground that was propped up against a wall unit. In the next shot, it is back in its place, and no one was seen to have picked it up. See more »

not terrible, but it unfortunately led to terrible things
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.
