This movie is based on the legend of the Chicken Ranch, a notorious brothel in Texas that was forced to shut down after over 100 years in business due to the antics of a nosy tv reporter from Houston. This movie is truly entertaining, with excellent dance sequences, terrific music, and a awesome cast that includes Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds, and Dom Deluise.
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen!!!!
I loved Dolly in the best little whorehouse in texas I loved every part that has Dolly in it I didn't like the watchdog report on the chicken ranch though!
I loved the Watchdog report on the Chicken Ranch, and when the Aggie Boys are dancing up a storm in the locker rooms. It's a classic Texas tale.
It's the most funny movie ever!!!!
