    1. Fun book about the many subsets of the hick flick genre, written by a guy who clearly loves bad movies the way they should be loved.Plus, any book where I get mentioned by name (page 185) automatically earns my appreciation


    2. My pal Scott von Doviak wrote this very fine book on on-screen hillbillyism. I am withholding a fifth star until he buys me a beer.
