Critic's Pick

'The Beverly Hillbillies'

October 09, 1994|Kevin Thomas

Director Penelope Spheeris brings equal amounts of sophistication and affection to her smart, fresh spin on the 1962-1971 TV series, while honoring the cornball humor of the original. Hillbilly billionaire Jed Clampett (Jim Varney, far left) heads for the hills of Beverly with the hopes of making a lady out of his tomboy daughter Elly May (Erika Eleniak, center, with Cloris Leachman as Granny and Diedrich Bader as Jethro.) Threatening to run off with the entire film is Lily Tomlin as an uptight but randy Miss Hathaway (HBO Saturday at 8 p.m.).
