C-

A sharp, high-powered L.A. executive (Cosby's Phylicia Rashad) and a gullible country gal (Dyan Cannon, made up to look like Elly May Clampett) are thrown together in a Louisiana jail cell. They escape and go scrambling around the bayou in this off-road comedy.

Dakin Matthews plays the sheriff on their trail; Alan (Going Places) Ruck is his goofy deputy. Rashad's real-life husband, sportscaster Ahmad, has a bit part as her attorney.

If it weren't for the decent chemistry between the stars, the whole thing would play out like an extended Duchesses of Hazzard.
