Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

 ... you can learn from:

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)

Miss Mona: Well I always just thought if you see 
somebody without a smile, give 'em yours!

When I say "Happy birthday!" to Miss Dolly Parton I want you to know that if I could scream that "Happy birthday!" so loud it obliterated the solar system it still wouldn't be an ounce of "Happy birthday!" enough. If she wasn't before -- and you couldn't made the case and I'd have bought your case -- now that Betty White has passed on I think Dolly's the official Most Beloved Celebrity in the World? I always hesitate to make proclamations like that because I grew up around and among extremely close-minded Christian-types who would look down on Dolly for her tarted-up look with the cleavage and make-up and you know, the everything. But the same went for Betty White -- these people definitely looked down on The Golden Girls too. So fuck those people. Dolly is the queen of the world!

The night I saw The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, I had gone to the U Film Society to see a documentary titled Not a Love Story, about how women are abused in porn. When I came out of it, I felt like I had to personally apologize to every woman in the audience, and it's not the sort of thing I watched. As I was walking downtown, I looked up a theater marquee and saw The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas on the marquee, I decided to see it. Fortunately, I was close to the next screening time, so I went in. I'd seen the stage version, and knew I'd be entertained. I certainly was. It lifted my spirits back up! I love this movie! Happy Birthday to one of the greatest women America has ever produced.
