With a tip of the hat to television’s “The Beverly Hillbillies”, this genial comedy follows the hilarious exploits of a black family who go from rags to riches and find that adjusting to a life of luxury is a bit more difficult than they thought.
In this independent comedy-drama, a lower-income African-American household is suddenly in the money when a member of the family buys a winning lottery ticket. However, when they move to Beverly Hills after receiving their windfall, they discover that being able to make the house payments doesn’t mean that they’ll fit in with their neighbors.
This film dictates to an audience below the common denominator. It often does not make sense and is not funny. Somebody just wanted to make a movie and they accomplished that task. As far as entertaining an audience, they failed miserably. Logic is not a strong suit of this picture. Neither are even fair strong story telling, camera work, acting and editing.
