‘The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas’ Movie Summary
The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas is the rare 80’s musical that appeals directly to an adult audience. This blend of West Side Story and Debbie Does Dallas brings 80’s icons Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton together as the film duo that you didn’t know that you wanted to see.
Reynolds plays Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd, who quietly keeps the peace in the sleepy Texas town of Gilbert. Just outside Gilbert is the infamous “Chicken Ranch”, a brothel that has serviced the men in Texas for generations. Parton plays Miss Mona, the madam who oversees the “Chicken Ranch”. Ed Earl, as well as the citizens of Gilbert, have turned a blind eye to illegal activities going on at the Ranch.
In fact, they are encouraging of the activities, as Miss Mona often supports many of the town’s activities and charities in addition to collecting all the town’s cherries. Unbeknownst to the citizens of the town, Ed Earl and Mona have a secret romantic relationship that has been going on for decades. The two often get together for a little afternoon delight, free of charge of course, while maintaining an outside appearance of professionalism.
