Ghastly pseudo-comedy/musical, painful to watch
27 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

In a sense, LAS VEGAS HILLBILLYS is worse than most of the worst horror films. First of all, this movie(an obvious rip on the BEVERLY HILLBILLYS)is so lame, so dreadfully photographed and directed that one feels bad for the audience who paid to see this in the theater. Second of all, one must wonder how desperate Mamie Van Doren and Jayne Mansfield were to get a paycheck to be in this film.

We open with some backwoods moonshiners, including Ferlin Husky, blow up their still accidentally. Then, news comes from Las Vegas that Ferlin has inherited a casino. So Husky and his pals pack up their things and move to Las Vegas. Nevada, that is. Washed-up movie stars, untalented country-western singers. Now all that's missing is Mrs. Hathaway and Jethro.

And some humor. This so-called comedy is so painfully unfunny that I wished I was watching one of those dumb Ernest movies again. Jayne Mansfied shows up as the manager of Husky's casino, and Mamie Van Doren is all but unrecognizable. (although not as bad as she was in THE NAVY VS THE NIGHT CREATURES) And the endless bumpkin music made me nauseaus.

I disliked LAS VEGAS HILLBILLYS because, in the end, you realize how much contempt the makers had for their audience.(By the way, who was the audience for this mess?)

Ferlin Husky, along with Joi Lansing, made a semi-sequel to this film the next year, HILLBILLYS IN A HAUNTED HOUSE. That film is just as dull, pointless, and filled with poor music. If you like one, you're bound to like the other, just for pure awfulness. All others beware, this film is UNCEASINGLY BAD.
