A late entry in the “hicksploitation,” country music, drive-in movie genre, this eye-poppingly colorful oddball corrals a motley crew of lesser-known music performers and fading Hollywood legends (Lila Lee and Sonny Tufts) into a moonshine-soaked sort-of-chase picture, punctuated by great tunes.

Our take

A wacky example of the so-called “hicksploitation” genre of country-themed drive-in movies, get ready to strap yourself in for a rip-roaring ride! This exuberantly goofy comedy takes us through some improbable, Southern-flavored scenarios and is set to the vibrant sounds of country and western.
