Disc: 3 stars out of 4

Atlanta-based Oscar-winning filmmaker/actor Ray McKinnon's most recent comedy is a mish-mash of styles and genres, but it is a very precise mishmash. It has the pathos of "Sling Blade," the angular tilt of the Coen Brothers and a bit of Jonathan Demme's "Married to the Mob" all wrapped up in the down-home, cornpone quaintness of "Mama's Family" or "The Andy Griffith Show." It walks a fine line between homage and satire while appealing to both high and low-brow tastes and shouldn't be missed. The extras and technical aspects of the DVD are acceptable but not quite what cult followers of the film might have expected.

Technical specs: aspect ratio: Widescreen (2.35:1), audio: English (Dolby 2.0 Digital), subtitles: none.

Special features include:

· Making-of featurette

· Cast and crew interviews
