In this film based on the 60's sitcom, The family Clampett move to Los Angeles after finding oil on the rural farm and selling it for a fortune. Once they arrive they find various people are after their money whilst the bankers try to integrate them into society.
With films like these, it's a wonder studios still think it's a good idea to regurgitate the past. Yet again proving it's not such a great idea, The Beverly Hillbillies turns into possibly one of the worst transitions ever. With a cast full of nobodies (who are nobodies for good reason, except Eleniak and that's for her breasts) and an uninspired script the whole film is a considerably patchy affair.
