      A classic musical

      This is a great movie when you want to watch something entertaining and upbeat. There isn't any profanity. It's a great little musical with a theme to it. Don't let the title fool you, it's tastefully done. It appeals to both men and women. The "Chicken Ranch" becomes a target of an upcoming political nomination and the movie covers how some folks living in the small town in Texas where the ranch is located try to save the historical place.

      My second best movie to 9 to 5. I love Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds. I love them in this movie together. A lot of laughs, music, and just a great movie to watch. Every time it came on television, I watched it. Now that I have the movie, I don't have to wait that long, I can just take it down and watch it every time I want.

      It's finally the time to have THE BEST LITTLE xxxxxHOUSE IN TEXAS on blu ray. Dolly is perfect, Burt really does sing, and the movie is still loads of fun. I loved it and happy to finally add this it to my permament collection. This review does contain inappropriate word- language and is not meant to offend any reader.

      Wasn't sure I'd enjoy this one, but the price was right, so I gave it a try. Picture and sound quality are okay, but not great. The movie is really pretty good. Charles Durning earned an Oscar nomination (losing to Louis Gossett Jr. for "An Officer and a Gentleman"). He's the best thing in the movie.

      Best Musical Ever

      I have seen this film at least a hundred times. It has absolutely got to be the best musical/love story of our time. This musical will have you laughing and crying. Excellent performances by Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds. This is a MUST see for any Dolly fan.

      What a great movie based on the infamous Chicken Ranch. What a great cast and certainly catchy tunes and good comedy. Dom Delouise is exceptional as Marvin Zindler and really hams it up. But what's better than Dolly Parton? Nothing.....

      It's a Great Musical! It has hilarious parts, sad parts, and - oops, I cannot give away too much - all set to fantastic music. Totally recommend. Warning, it does have some girls going topless, but it does go with the plot.

      Been a very long time since I saw this movie. I remember watching it when we rented it on VHS. The transfer onto Blu ray was absolutely wonderful as with great picture and sound. Movie was well worth the price.
