Edward Mulligan's rating of the film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

The simple fact that this movie exists is a marvel on its own, a musical set in a brothel that's based on a true story, what's not to like? The film is full of fun camp, charm, heart, and a racy subject matter that is embrased by small town America and not rejected by it. Plus, Dom Deluise is fantastic in it.
