I saw this movie when it came out and was absolutely dissapointed. Surprisingly Jim Varney did a pretty decent job playing Jed. There was no hint of "Ernest" in his character - not that I dislike Ernest but he's not Jed Clampett.

But that's the ONLY good comment I can make regarding this film. As others have stated, the people who made this movie had no real understanding of the original TV show. Jed was uneducated but wise and absolutely incorruptable. Jethro was a dumb but very likeable character who approached every new interest with wild enthusiasm. He was dumb but never silly. The Jethro in this movie was so silly as to be unwatchable. Ellie Mae was always pure and sweet. In this movie they have her chewing tobbaco and spitting on people. It was offensive to call this actress Ellie Mae. Grannie wasn't too bad but still not close to the original. I supsect this movie will only appeal to the casual fan of the TV show - the people who saw it every now and then in re-runs but don't really know the characters. I fail to see how anybody really familiar with the original could even sit through this. The pitiful Jethro was the complete deal breaker for me. Max Baer's Jethro was in my opinion equaled only by Don Knott's Barney Fife as one of the two greatest TV comedy characters. This movie's Jethro was as funny as watching paint dry in comparison.

A Kid's Review on February 26, 2006
Format: DVD
My name is Andy. I'm a huuuuuuuuuge fan of the classic tv series, "the beverly hillbillies". and I was surprised to see

this film on the 5 dollar rack in wal-mart. needless to say,

when I saw the DVD in my reach i was ecstatic! I begged my parents to buy it and they did! Jim Varney is my favorite actor. it was hilairious! on the scale of 1 to 5,this was shooting a 7!!! but there was one problem...it had WAAAAAAAAY

too much sexual humor. mainly between the bad guys. I counted 12 dirty things throughout the whole movie! One part was when the clampetts were on the freeway. Some guy drives up in a jeep and yells,"Nice wheels!"and gives them the finger. so, Jed says,"Jethro,what's that man a-pointin' at?" "I reckon that's

how you wave hi to folks in beverly hills." See what I mean?

also, I discovered that on the box it said "rated PG".For what???????? It didn't say! Heck, i'm only 12!!! Movie people think some bits of dirty stuff would just fly over kids heads!! I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see a funny movie. But I would not recommend it to anyone who don't want to let their children see a dirty film. don't see this if you're one of those people.

By the way, thanks for putting this child's form here amazon. now this is my first comment i've ever written online! Keep going amazon!

This is one of the best movie remakes of a classic TV show that I have ever seen. In the movie, the salt-of-the-earth Clampetts discover oil, get fabulously rich, and move to Beverly Hills. Jed Clampett (played by Jim Varney) is in search of a wife to help raise Ellie Mae to be a real lady, but the family must beware of evil people who want to steal their wealth. Now, perhaps that sounds a little far fetched, but if you've ever met some simple folk who come into a lot of oil money, the whole story sounds very, very close to home.
The casting is superb -- there are cameo appearances by Dolly Parton, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Buddy Ebsen. Lily Tomlin is hilarious as the family�s secretary, and Jim Varney actually plays a very believable straight guy. This movie has no sex, foul language, or violence, and will bring lots of laughs to the whole family.

This is one I save for time requiring sheer silliness with no observable traces of reality. I have to admit that it is a very contrived and predictable plot, but anything that is such an obvious spin-off of a fabulously popular television series would have a hard time being anything but derivative. Having said all that, I laughed all the way through the movie, and still chuckle thinking about a lot of the slapstick shtick used so liberally here. The storyline has been updated to make it a bit more topical, and the characters as depicted in the movie are slightly more contemporary than their counterparts in the TV series. But they are just as refreshingly corny and ordinary, and sometimes that is such an invigorating act to watch that it seems liberating somehow.
The cast is uniformly terrific; the best is easily the late Jim Varney, showing surprising range in his star-turn recreating the Jed Clampett character in the shadow of the legendary Buddy Ebsen, who so many of us baby-boomers remember as being Jed Clampett. Of course, Cloris Leachman shows why she is such a celebrated actress in her hilariously naughty portrayal of Granny, and Erika Eleniak gives a wonderfully corny interpretation of sexy but innocent Elly Mae, more interested in ?rasslin? than boys, and as quick to ?whup? those boys if they get our of line.
Also quite good is Diedrich Bader as Jethro (and also acting in drag as Jethro?s sister Jethrine, on the make and virtually unstoppable), as is Dabney Coleman as Mr. Drysdale, and a wonderful Lily Tomlin as Miss Hathaway. Of course, the villains are key in all this, and Rob Schneider and Lea Thompson spread their wings into comedic farce quite well. The scene with Thompson vamping Jed Clampett with her false French accent is hilarious for its ?shocking?
