Cute but overly tame rollick
19 November 2004 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

Lunk-headed hicks rob their rural community's beloved whorehouse. Big Bertha, cherished Madame and local celebrity altruist, is so distraught about having to close shop that the whole town comes to her aid in tracking down the unscrupulous thieves.

Fairly well executed for such a minor film, and admittedly quite funny at times...unfortunately, the nudity is surprisingly brief considering the subject matter at hand, and the film therefor ends up feeling like wholesome family entertainment which happens to center around a brothel. Satisfactory performances and higher production values than many films of its genus help to raise this romp a half-notch higher than the standard...a watchable timewaster worth a 99 cent rental, but nobody's going to be waving it around and squealing with the excitement of unearthing an "unknown gem".
