    Young Roy is pure goodness in this movie! I got impatient in the bad guys’ scenes waiting for him but it was worth it to see him singing on the porch! I really enjoy Sally Payne too, after Dale she is probably my favorite lady lead in his movies. I had never heard of her until I started watching Roy’s movies. She and Gabby are a good pair here! Very funny!
