Founded in 1910 just outside of the city limits of Gilbert located in Lanville County, Texas, the Chicken Ranch has for generations been known as the best little whorehouse in Texas for its wholesome fun, strict moral code, and cleanliness, all perpetuated by its original owner, Miss Wulla Jean. Seven years ago, Miss Wulla Jean died, leaving the Chicken Ranch to her favorite working girl, Miss Mona Stangley, who wants to keep the same traditions of Miss Wulla Jean. The Chicken Ranch has always had the unofficial blessing of the local authorities, who see the ranch providing an important community service, one which most in local authority have used at one time or another in their lives.

When this movie was first released in theatres, and on its first ABC TV airing, it featured Burt Reynolds singing a song. (The song is in the scene immediately following his confrontation with Miss Mona, in which he orders her to shut down the Chicken Ranch. In the video release, and in the current TV version, that sequence has been removed On the new version, Burt is seen briefly in a "contemplation" link sequence. The tune (written by Dolly Parton) which Burt originally sang on the movie was used in Dolly's "Rhinestone" movie. She wrote totally new words to the music and titled the song "God Won't Get You". (Also a single release for Dolly on RCA). See more »
I decided to watch this after learning of Burt Reynolds' death. I can't believe it took me this long to finally watch the film! It was an utter delight watching this! I enjoyed every moment. I loved the music and the stunning costumes, and the film was really funny. It was good innocent fun with a hint of eroticism. The chemistry between Dolly and Burt was fantastic. 'The Best little whorehouse in Texas' made me smile from beginning to end!
