Beverly Methbillies

Popped up in a search for Missouri movies. Looked kind of like my home town, pretty much the same people. And that is the truth, there are people just like this in Missouri. The film had some cleaver puns and outlandish episodes (The exterminator, Noodling and the whiskey bong). The meth-head on a rocking horse & meth-head poet, that was killer. The epilogues were pretty cool, especially for Phillip Fellini, could be a perfect sequel setup. --- Watch it with out any hopes it will be good, and you will have some fun. Watch it with expectations and you will be disappointed. --- Now for some real Missouri Movies, try Winter's Bone and Killer Diller.
