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.

I must say it's inspirational how you found a place for the Clampetts right nextdoor to your own.
The people who lived there were my best friends and neighbors for over 20 years. I'm really going to miss them.
It's a shame they had to file for bankruptcy and had to sell the place.
I know. I'd hate to think that my phone call to the IRS had anything to do with it.

A pretty entertaining movie based on the old TV series, I rate it "6" of 10.
You shouldn't go into watching this movie thinking you'll get something great or novel. After all, it IS based on the silly old TV series, which I thoroughly enjoyed back then. Erika Eleniak, former Playboy model, who plays Ellie May, is strikingly beautiful and does a fine job in this role. The late Jim Varney is also very good as Jed Clampett, Lily Tomlin is good in her role. Lea Thompson (first of Back To The Future fame) shows her acting range in a role as the scheming "French teacher" out to get Jed's money. I didn't particularly care for Rob Schneider's role, but wat the heck. Still, anyone who enjoyed the TV series should have fun watching this film.
