The Best Little Whorehouse In TexasHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas documents in rousing song and dance a new Texas Legend, which now joins the Alamo as a historical institution immortalized in story, song, book, play and movie. The demise of the real-life Chicken Ranch inspired the musical stage play, and now the big screen version stars Burt Reynolds as Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd and Dolly Parton as the Chicken Ranch's proprietress, Miss Mona. The two join together not only in romance, but to fight big city TV crusader Melvin P. Thorpe (Dom DeLuise) in his efforts to expose the Chicken Ranch to public scandal, and thus close it down.
Finally iTUNES has added one of my absolute favorite movies !!!! Dolly Parton is absolutley fabulous in this film , & Burt Reynolds is a worthy co-star ! THIS MOVIE IS AWESOME !!! Love You Dolly , your the best !!!!!
Dolly...you're one of the best!!!
One of the best comedies and musicals I have seen in a good while. The best movie with Dolly Parton I have ever seen.
must see. . . musical camp at its finest
if there's ever a role made for dolly parton its one that requires telling a governor, a preacher, a sheriff, and a whole darn town to go to hell. . . in the most angelic voice you ever did hear. burt reynolds isn't bad in this one, either (to my surprise), but the real casting gems are dom deluise as melvin p thorpe, tv evangelist, and charles durning as the governor. durning's 'sidestep' number alone is reason enough to download. for the tv fans, jim nabors narrates throughout and serves as deputy fred, reynolds' right hand man and theresa merrit appears as jewel, the right hand to dolly's miss mona, and a sort of den mother to the chicken house girls. the film and score have aged pretty well. bottom line: if you haven't seen it. . . do. especially if you love musicals.
