Highly recommended! 5 Beans Out of 5!



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.


Review: Okay, 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…

The 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.

Again, not a movie for a serious mood. Save this one for a night when you want to escape.
