This uproariously funny white trash campfest takes a wicked peek into an extended family of Texas rednecks who've come together for the funeral of their adulterous matriarch. Attending the funeral are her dueling big-haired daughters LaVonda (Ann Walker) and Latrelle (Bonnie Bedelia); sister Sissy (Beth Grant), who picked the wrong time to quit smoking; a revengeful neighbor (Delta Burke); brother Earl (Leslie Jordan), a Tammy Wynette-obsessed drag queen; hunky Ty (Kirk Geiger), Latrelle's estranged gay son; and Bitsy Mae (Olivia Newton-John), a country music-singing ex-con lesbian. The tantrums, gossips and revelations spill all over the linoleum floor in this film that deliriously revels at its chitin-loving, beer-guzzling, gun-totting, same sex-loving, pill-popping eccentrics.

We know we can't choose our relatives and aren't we glad someone else has this group? White Trailer Trash may not be apropos for this collection of oddities because these people are so damn funny. Don't think their intention is to be funny, but they are all just a little bit left of center. They are living their lifestyles or not, but they are doing this in their own way.
The beginning of the movie starts at a slow pace but soon builds to a crescendo that will have you laughing til your sides hurt. Sissy Hickey is on the phone discussing the demise of her sister. A rather unfortunate incident of tripping over the wooden legs of her married lover in a third rate motel. Now, the two daughters, Latrelle played by Bonnie Bedelia, and Noletta played by Delta Burke, are arguing over whether mom should be buried in her fur wrap in the middle of summer. This done over a table full of southern fried food sent in by neighbors. The talk turns to Noletta's husband, the lover with the wooden legs, mom's son-in-law. And then turns to Boy Brother, their younger bro, who dresses in women's clothing and has spent the past 20 years in the insane asylum. Latrelle's son is in Hollywood and acting in gay plays. The curious incident of the wooden legs has made the family a laughing stock and how to deal with this?
In the meantime Boy Brother and his psychiatrist, Dr Eve Bolinger, are undergoing his therapy. Dr Bolinger is going to cure Boy Brother of his homosexuality and make her so famous she will appear on Oprah. However Boy Brother is not cooperating, He does not want to change. So, there appears to be a stand-off.
The problems of each family member and the collective are enough to make a grown man cry. However, in this case, we may be down on our knees gasping from our laughter. How this family comes together is a mystery and the country western singer, played by Olivia Newton John , sings the family back home. Not a laugh a minute but funny enough to keep us all off-base.
"Like a live-action version of "King of the Hill" in hyperdrive, features some ornery down-homers who remain convinced of their common sense even when every move puts them in deeper doo-doo. The doo-doo that they do so well is adultery, with the latest round of musical beds in the tale's unnamed small town having resulted in the death of old Peggy, who tripped over the misplaced wooden legs of her married lover, G.W. (Beau Bridges)." Ken Eisner
Highly Entertaining and will become a cult classic. prisrob 02-11-08
Well I was right!
This is a piece of pure low budget corny goodness that can be enjoyed without any struggle. Set around the lives of a Texas family this film explores death, addiction, forgiveness and coming out in a comical yet sometimes moving way.
All the actors have a good crack at making this movie special, especially Leslie Jordan as the institutionalised Tammy Wynette fan who goes around dressing and performing like his idol. And the lovely Olivia Newton-John strutting her stuff as an ex-con lesbian and belting out a few tunes. She's never lost it!
Yes it's cheesy, corny and all the other derogatory words I can think off. But it is a lovely film, and it's easy to see why it has become such a cult movie in America. Hey The Rocky Horror Picture Show wasn't a perfect film, but look at the fame that has garnered.
Don't expect too much, have a glass of cheap wine, and enjoy - God Bless you Tammy!
I understand the Series was made after the Movie, so great the potential was noted and something excellent came out of this. I would highly recommend the SERIES to anyone, but do not bust a gut seeing the movie!
