"The Big Bus"

The Big Bus rides again. I never know when I do a film if the project has an audience or not, and am often surprised when I get mail about an obscure film, but take it as proof that nearly any project I think is worthwhile will appeal to at least some of our readers. I heard from a fan of The Big Bus, who had a request. "Even though Stockard Channing didn't show a lot of skin in that movie, she still looked pretty hot IMHO. Some caps of her would be nice to see." With a request like this, I know for certain that at least one Fun House member will enjoy the work, and so always try to accommodate them.

In this case, it worked out very nicely, as I was able to show other images in the top that help give more of a feel for the film, and Channing has a near nipple slip (image 1) and a pokie (image 2) in addition to looking "pretty hot." Keep those cards and letters coming.

    "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas"

    The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) Every time I think I am beginning to understand DVD distribution, I get a surprise. I have no idea why this film is available on Region 4 DVD from Australia, and nowhere else in the world. Thank God it is. There is a lot of brief nudity in the infamous Dom DeLuise raid scene, but is too brief and blurry for good VHS caps. You might recall that I covered (if you will excuse the term) Dolly Parton's cleavage from the VHS version, but was unable to get anything from the other women. This time around, we have Dolly's cleavage, breasts from Annie Gaybis and Terri Treas, and breasts and see-through from several unidentified women.

    I adore this film, although it is not that highly rated at IMDB (4.9 of 10). It is not that I like every scene, or even every song, but several performances (Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Jim Nabors and Charles Durning especially) were strong, some of the songs were memorable, and the choreography for the Aggie hoedown, and I Love to Do a Little Sidestep was inspired. Ironically, my least favorite song from the film, Rock Candy Christmas, is showing up on country Christmas albums. It is my understanding that the chicken ranch is loosely based on an actual house of pleasure, and a small Texas town, and that the town folks were not wild about the way they were portrayed.

    In an interview, Reynolds spoke about how much he liked Dolly, and how important the movie was to her. She hoped to bring country music to every living room in America with this film, and Reynolds was afraid he was not serious enough, or a good enough singer, to do the material justice. As I have said before, Burt plays the character of Burt Reynolds really well, and the swearing Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd of Lanville Co. Texas, called for a Burt Reynolds character. Delouse was so good as the sleazy Watchdog reporter, that I wanted to punch his lights out, and Jim Nabors as the deputy/narrator was perfect for the part. But the highlight of the film for me was Durning as the Governor avoiding the press and singing "I Love to do a Little Sidestep." The academy agreed, and nominated him for a supporting actor Oscar. The film was nominated for Best Actress and Best Comedy/Musical by the Golden Globes.

    Perhaps low scores can be explained by the use of the word Whorehouse in the title (it was changed to Cathouse for a Canadian release), and the fact that the film presented both male and female nudity, glorified prostitution and sex, and did it all in a high energy and entertaining manner. If you hate country music, or don't think prostitution is an appropriate subject for a musical comedy, you really don't want to see this one. Judging by the comments at IMDB, many feel the same way I do, that the film is just plain fun, and worth the watch. There is clearly a substantial audience, as it has done $47,334,000.00 in USA rentals alone. C+.

    I'm resting my weary bones. Will have some pics tomorrow. Here's some silly shit.

    Other crap:


    People often ask if there is any real difference between the two major political parties in the States.  To answer the question, Rep. Andrew Jacobs of Indiana rose in the House of Representatives and offered this delineation.
    • Democrats seldom make good polo players
    • The people you see coming out of white wooden churches are Republicans
    • Democrats buy most of the books that have been banned someplace.  Republicans form censorship committees and read them as a group.
    • Republicans are likely to have fewer but larger debts that cause them no concern.  Democrats owe a lot of small bill.  They don’t worry either.
    • Republicans consume ¾ of all of the rutabaga produced in this country.  The rest is thrown out.
    • Republicans usually wear hats and almost always clean their paintbrushes. 
    • Democrats give their worn out clothes to those less fortunate.  Republicans wear theirs.
    • Republicans post all of the signs saying NO TRESPASSING and THESE DEER ARE PRIVATE PROPERTY and so on.  Democrats bring picnic baskets and start their bonfires with those signs.
    • Republicans employ exterminators.  Democrats step on bugs.
    • Republicans have governesses for their children.  Democrats have Grandmothers.
    • Democrats name their children after currently popular sports figures, politicians and entertainers.  Republican children are named after their parents or grandparents according to where the most money is.
    • Large cities such as New York are filled with Republicans – until 5 PM.  At this point there is a phenomenon much like an automatic washer starting the pin cycle.  People begin pouring out of every exits of the city.  These are Republicans going home.
    • Democrats keep trying to cut down on smoking, but are not successful.  Neither are Republicans.
    • Republicans tend to keep their shades drawn, though their isn’t any reason why they should.  Democrats ought to, but don’t.
    • Republicans fish from the stern of a chartered boat.  Democrats sit on the dock and let the fish come to them.
    • Republicans study the financial pages of the newspaper.  Democrats line the bottom of the bird cage with them.
    • Most of the stuff you see alongside the road has been thrown out of car windows by Democrats.
    • On Saturday, Republicans head for the hunting lodge or the yacht club.  Democrats wash the car and get a haircut.
    • Republicans raise dahlias, Dalmatians, and eyebrows.  Democrats raise Airedales, kids and taxes.
    • Democrats eat the fish they catch.  Republicans hang them on the wall.
    • Democrats watch TV crime and Western shows that make them red in the face.  Republicans get the same effect from Presidential pres conferences.
    • Christmas cards that Democrats send are filled with reindeer  and chimneys and long message.  Republicans select cards containing a spray of holly, or a single candle.
    • Democrats are continually saying “ This Christmas we are going to be sensible”.  Republicans consider this highly unlikely.
    • Republicans smoke cigars on weekdays.
    • Republicans have guestrooms.  Democrats have spare rooms filled with baby furniture.
    • Republican boys date Democrat girls.  They plan to marry Republican girls but feel they are entitled to a little fun first.
    • Democrats make plans and the do something else.  Republicans follow the plans their Grandfathers made.
    • Democrats purchase all the tools – the power saws and mowers.  A Republican probably wouldn’t know how to use a screwdriver.
    • Democrats suffer from chapped hands and headaches.  Republicans have tennis elbow and gout.
    • Republicans sleep in twin beds – some even in separate rooms.  That is why there are more Democrats.


    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that I inexplicably determined there might be something of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.
