A comedy that also rates pretty well
on the old weirdometer. Two escaped convicts are mistaken
for gay beauty pageant consultants, and find themselves
advising a small town on their 5 year old beauty pageant
- while noticing the local bank doesn't seem very well secured.
One of them of course falls in love, while the local Sheriff
falls for one of them.
so, you’re going to rent a movie and you’re willing
to suspend your disbelief for the next hour and a half,
right? You sure? Then read on…
premise of Happy Texas is definitely out there but
it does provide a fun little ride. The story is simple and
follows the havoc that two imposters wreak on a small town.
There are lots of satisfying, character scenes that should
hold your interest and have the added bonus of moving
the plot along. One cautionary note: this movie involves
children and contains some gratuitously cute moments. Fortunately,
not many. Otherwise the performances are good and the comedy
doesn’t appear forced.
not a movie for a serious mood. Save this one for a night
when you want to escape.
