Reviews
Mine: OK, so sue me, I love this movie. Burt at his good-ol-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold best. Great music. Charles Durnning steals the show with his number. Dolly is wonderful. Some really Memorable lines i.e.: "Honey, we see everything in this profession, but one thing I ain't never seen -- man or woman -- is a grown-up." Just great fun.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Flashy but unsatisfying musical (based on Broadway hit) about pressures brought to bear on sheriff (Reynolds) to close a popular establishment called The Chicken Ranch--run by his ladyfriend. Dolly's a delight, Durning has a showstopping number as the Governor, but occasionally film actually tries to get serious and screeches to a halt. Dolly's hit song ``I Will Always Love You'' (which she also wrote) had been #1 in 1974--and would be an even bigger hit for Whitney Houston in 1992's THE BODYGUARD. Panavision.
