Hilariously funny movie that's meant to be taken as a parody based on a simpler, more innocent era in our nation's history. I thought that this movie was one of the most amusing takes on this slapstick era in deep south rural 1930's America that's ever been produced. As a Southerner myself I've seen firsthand many of the quaint and quirky idiosyncrasies largely intrinsic to this area and this era which the movie highlighted so delightfully. These characteristics caricatured in this film only enhance fond memories I have of my Southern roots and upbringing and those rebellious, hell-raising, whiskey lovin', largely unschooled and unrepentant male relatives (uncles) and many of their fellow small town and rural neighbors who added color, life and animation to our lives. For me, this movie was not a 'put down' of my part of the country at all but a reminder and a celebration of a people (black and white),a culture, a place and a time that I hold most dear looking back on my life. I think that Hollywood should be congratulated for bringing together this entertaining story-line, the fine acting talents and wonderful ole-time music this great film so graphically showcases.
