I had not heard of Billy Burke before Twilight...I will admit.

I was interesed in all the actors and actresses who were in that
movie...So, researched some of their work old and in process.

I also read that Ms Hardwicke had seen Dill Scallion and that is
why she chose him for Twilight...

So, on a whim, I bought it...it wasn't easy to find to tell the
truth...

I was not in the least disappointed...What a wonderful little movie
and to see Mr Burke in a whole other genre of movie besides being "Bellas
Dad in Twilight was great.

I highly reccomend it. If you are not a "country music" fan, don't
worry, you'll enjoy the "poking fun" at country stars...that's just
pure humor not rude or mean.

If you are a "country music" fan (as I have been my whole life)
you'll still enjoy the gentle pokes at the country music establishment.

Mr Burke has a fine voice, and would love to see him actually make a
CD one day...

I'm so glad to have finally found Dill Scallion on DVD! It's one of the funniest movies ever. A great addition to my "Mockumentaries."

Dill Scallion is one of the most hilarious movies ever made. I wore out 2 VHS tapes before they finally released the DVD. And like other reviewers, I'm really surprised that it didn't earn a bigger release hullabaloo. Particularly with the rise of 'claw-n-scratch-my-way-up-off-the-D-List' Ms. Kathy Griffin on board. The Mockumentary genre has (at least in my opinion) grown up to be a bit too contrived and polished. While still funny, it feels like everyone's figured out the recipe. Dill Scallion brings us back to all the deliciously awkward/painful stuff that made Spinal Tap and Waiting for Guffman so wonderful. I'd love for it to get the attention it deserves, but I also like being the one to introduce Dill to unsuspecting friends. Yee-haw, loyal Scallionaires!

This is one of my all-time favorite movies. I'm shocked that more people don't know about it, and even more shocked that it never received a proper DVD release. This movie is hilarious -- definitely a "Spinal Tap" for country music....but it's not a rip-off of Spinal Tap. Even if you aren't a fan of Country music, you should see this movie...it's funny and has a cast of some great actors/actresses. I hope that this film someday sees the light of day (i.e. major distribution). It was originally only available as a rental (or as a purchase on VHS) from Blockbuster. But it's so much better than that. In Summary: A great parody that I can watch again and again.

Just how does one wind up wearing a belt buckle big as a dinner plate (hint: it's a gradual build-up).
And maybe winning back with your music the gal who broke your heart - maybe that ain't really such a good thing.
And that dance, that gd dance they all love, well that just ain't natural.

A mockumentary a la Spinal Tap, with a country flavor and twang that just hurts so good - one of my top ten favorite, laugh-til-you-hurt movies.

I am so happy to see this movie on DVD. One of the best movies ever! I have shown it to at least a dozen people and they all love it, too. Every country music lover (or hater) should own a copy. Well worth the money.

Ifyou liked Spinal Tap, this is the country/western version. This movie is hillarious. The songs, the dance, Dill, and Minnie Pearl's nephew Bubba Pearl, they're all worth watching.
