“Just about everything it’s meant to be – a couple of diverting hours in the dark. Rollicking, good-natured, a bit spicy and with just enough heart… ideally teams powerhouse stars Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton.

“Nifty prolog sketches how the title establishment is a regular Texas institution. Modest abode is currently under the proprietorship of Miss Mona, a super lady played by Parton with all her accustomed humor, warmth and knockout charm. Local Sheriff Reynolds is her b.f. of long standing, a down-home boy technically corrupt because he protects the illegal goings-on.

“But nothing is sacred to media crusader Dom DeLuise, an outrageously self-serving muckraker who ‘exposes’ the bawdyhouse on his glitzy, song-and-dance TV news show and will stop at nothing to shut the place down.” – Variety
