Boring and Predictable
21 October 2016 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This movie begins with a car chase between a female moonshine bootlegger named "Mary Ann" (Sherry Robinson) and a county sheriff named "Bull Tatum" (Charles Elledge). As luck would have it Mary Ann manages to easily outrun the sheriff and returns to her base of operations which is run by her mother "Stella Holcomb" (Tonia Bryan). From this point the movie shifts to the state capital where a special agent by the name of "Jeff Wilson" (Don Jones) is ordered by his boss to drive to Barefoot County to investigate everything that is going on down there. Unfortunately, as soon as he enters the county he is driven off of the road by some obnoxious teenagers headed by a young man named "Culley Joe" (Jeff MacKay) who thinks he can do whatever he wants--especially with the local women. At any rate, having sustained an injury in the crash, Jeff's car is spotted by Stella and he is subsequently taken to her home and cared for until he is back on his feet again. Upon regaining consciousness he resumes his assignment and goes undercover by working for Mr. "Otis Perkins" (Ned Austin) who just happens to be the father of Culley Joe. Needless to say, having Jeff around does not make Culley Joe very happy and soon the two of them have problems with each other. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this film was about as boring as anything I have ever seen. For starters, the plot was very thin and also rather predictable. Further, for a comedy the humor was noticeably lacking, the action was rather boring and the music was sub-standard as well. As a matter of fact, other than the presence of a few attractive young ladies to brighten the scenery there really wasn't anything worth watching. That said, I have rated this movie accordingly. Below average.
