Can't get the images out of my head: huge tires spinning through mud, shining truck bodies, locals devoted to mudhole culture. Florida swampland and city streets-daytime and nighttime. Nature, machines, and booze.The family portrayed in the film is complicated: repulsive, sympathetic, enchanting. You feel uncomfortable, you giggle, you reflect on America and your place-anyone's place-within it.I highly recommend this film.
I watched this film with a friend who has "0 time for racists" (his words), and yet the chraracter portraits presented of rural Florida life were so compelling, even he felt empathy towards the self-described "racist" characters. A wonderful portrait of rural life, the challenges and mindsets that come with it, and the difficulty of preserving such a way of life in the face of coroporate development and unfettered capitalism. And I have to say, The Redneck Yacht Club scene is WILD! Hold on to your seats
Nothing about this movie was good. The main character was uninteresting. His family was also. The story went nowhere. Mud bogging was a hobby and had no compelling value. It highlights the worst aspects of redneck white trash. Just awful all around. Don't waste your time.
