      The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is a crazy musical that is raunchy and often inappropriate for the mainstream and yet is funny and delightful to watch. The language is way too much for my tastes, but I choose to grit my way through this movie because I actually like it very much. I think what makes it

      work is that the ending is different from the original version. I love a happy ending, and we get one here to a great extent.

      Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton star, along with Jim Nabors, Dom Deluise, and Charles Durning. Reynolds is the sheriff, Parton the madam, Nabors the deputy, Deluise the people’s advocate, and Durning the side-stepping governor. All are fantastic. They speak, sing, and dance their way through this movie with ease and with a large amount of humor.

      What I enjoy most is the chemistry between Reynolds and Parton. It’s playful, tender, and sometimes volatile. There’s also that element of surprise between them because you really aren’t sure which way the characters are ...

      going to go. Parton sings I’ll Always Love You to Reynolds at the film’s end, and that’s absolutely beautiful.

      Nabors is charming and friendly in his portrayal. He’s almost Gomer Pyle to a degree. He’s the good ole boy just having fun and living life. His character isn’t developed all that much, but he’s the narrator of

      the tale and really isn’t part of the story’s core.

      Deluise and Durning are hysterical. I don’t think of Durning as a a musical star, but he was dead on perfect here. Deluise has done this type of stuff before, so his work wasn’t unexpected.

      The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is for adults, and it will bring about an evening of laughs.
