Complete drivel - but funny to the locals
14 June 2004 | by mavenessSee all my reviews

This movie is completely forgettable...in fact, quite horrible. Unless, that is, you are from Randolph County, NC, and know the area well enough.

Filmed in 1968, the fact that Dick Clark was one of the stars was enough to draw crowds. Unfortunately, the most memorable movie moment happened behind the scenes in response to a love scene filmed in a field of Queen Anne's lace. Funny for the locals, painful for the stars.

The plot is weak, the cinematography painful, and the acting is wooden.

Don't waste your time unless you are completely bored out of your mind.
