Storyline

Just when her sister and her fiancé are planning to sell their late father's North Carolina farm, philanderer Frannie Vaughn, whom they couldn't even reach for the funeral, returns. She prevents the sale and flippantly decides to turn it into a pig farm, without any know-how. Meanwhile she makes life livelier and harder for anyone in the factory where her sister gets her a job she soon messes up, but thus finds a partner in foreman Ruben, standing by him when disaster strikes.

silk dope!
10 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

Farrah's knocking on 52 in this movie and the soft focus length can't deny more nips and tucks in her boatrace than a cornish pastie.

The "gentle and pleasant" plot is torn apart by the fact that having been told her mum had up to six months to live, this lovable rogue like doll disappears and comes back six months to the day and is flummoxed when her mum had kicked the bucket three days previously!! We are supposed to sympahise with the dim witted dolly when her sister and brother in law to be want to sell their share of the property to try to make something of their lives. Given that Farrah has to appear the holly golightly that she ain't, they have to act with a perfomance not equalled for woodeness since pinnochio was last done. However, our dim witted dolly disagrees to the house sale and agrees to pack underwear at the local mill to make up her share of the 200 grand owing to buy them out!!! The subplot is that she is searching for her long lost dad who did a bunk years back and who can blame him and in a move resplendent of one of charlie's aunts..sorry angels, she drops notes in the gigantic drawers that she packs for your average 26 stone american lving in North Carolina....given that she only packed one on twenty pairs, she got extremely lucky when she got a reply from his ex missus!! Things then get worse or funnier, the foreman at the mill, looking every bit of the 15 years her junior he is, falls for her exclaiming he remembers going to her family farm at the age of 12 and being shy of her " you'd have been 14 at the time!!!" well I've heard of flattery gets you everywhere but thats taking the mickey, she'd have been forty at least...then comedy turns to farce when our hero loses his arm in the mill machinery ( reminded me of the "the mangle" ) and the following scenes are shot with his arm clearly either "hidden" up his back or consumed as a beer belly in his baggy shirt he begins wearing following the accident. Pure pantomime! Of course they raise the money with his compensation money paid in a fortnight and as he looks in to her puffed up 50 something eyes, he keeps a straight face when he declares he wants to marry her and for her to have his children, children in the plural as if medicine is miraculous or his compensation enough to reverse her menopause! Cruel comments maybe, but pure farce and a real laugh on a wet saturday, " silk dope!"
