This musical comedy film co-written, produced by directed by Colin Higgins (in his final film as director) stars Burt Reynolds, Dolly Parton, Jim Nabors, Charles Durning and Dom DeLuise and tells the story of Miss Mona (Parton) who runs the Chicken Ranch, a brother with a long history in a small Texas town. The locals have a good relationship with the institution and Mona is respected in the community. The Sheriff, Ed Earl Dodd (Reynolds( also looks out for the Chicken Ranch due to his past with Miss Mona. However, when pious reporter Melvin Thorpe (DeLuise) exposes the brothel, outside interests want it shut down, putting the governor (Durning) in a tough spot. The film was the fourth highest-grossing live-action musical film of the 1980s and Charles Durning was nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Supporting Actor for his role.
