This is a movie that was first out thirty-three years ago, and I just found it as it was now on DVD. This down south country young lady has lost her mother, and her aunt from California bring her back to live with her, her husband, three daughters, and I guess the baby belongs to one of the girls. This sister is country right on, wearing shoes with hill that would never allow her to walk straight, let alone in a circle. Her Aunt happens to be a beautician and does things to the niece's hair, which I thought was a waste, because she already had uncombed curls, and her hair was thick and cut. Her two young lady cousins and their boyfriends take her to a party at the college and they are turned down when trying to get a guy to hook up with the country cousin. Finally a tall, and I mean TALL guy hipped up on pills enters the party. THe boyfriends recognize his high state and decides to get him to talk to the country cousin. The tall man's friend loudly gives the boyfriends hell for trying to hook his buddy up with a booga bear, just because he was high. Friend then calls the girls bitches and the county one kicks his rear but good. This starts a good relationship with the girl cousins, their boyfriends, and soon the Tall man. He takes country cousin to a party where a fight breaks out, and we now see the Tall one is a higher up in a gang. Tall man and friend ends up fighting with policemen, taking their guns and beating them. As they are running away, Country cousin breaks from her cousins hold and follows her man. They hide out eventually, and are soon arrested. Country girl has crying fits because she luvvvv tall man. He uses this time to make an ass out of Country cousin. She holds drugs for him, takes the lead in starting a car wash for bail money for her man, then robs a bank. All gang member respect country girl as leader after she jack up one of the girls. When Tall man and friend are released from jail, Country girl waits at the party being thrown for him, but he is not there and Country girl spends her time on the couch being sad. She finally leaves and returns in the morning. She finds Tall man upstairs with a woman in bed. He tells cousin to get out and shut the door. If I am not mistaken the girl in bed with Tall man is the one Cousin jacked up at the car wash, however now all her hair is cut and shaved. When the girl in the bed sees Country girl, she starts moving. Country girl tells her she is free to leave and between Tall man telling her to stay with him, and Country girl saying leave, she LEAVES. Tall man finally tells Country girl he was using her and her could never love a girl with a face like hers and that is probably why her mother died so she would not have to look at her ugly face. Oh well, it is on. Tall man gets in a couple of punches, but Country girl ends up knocking his undershorts wearing body down the house stairs and to the lawn and beats his tool. Most people there, including his best friend loses respect for tall man.
I almost passed this movie up because the cover looked like some wonder woman type of film. I am so glad I bought it. THe country girl is really a beautiful black sister. Most of the actors are not familiar to me, and a lot just did this one movie according to research.The Aunt, I remember seeing on Good Times once, and I believe tall man was on That's my Momma once.
I can watch this movie over and over and still enjoy it each time. The movie is cheap, and it is cool to again see the 1970's Clothes and shoes, not to mention the dancing. GET THIS MOVIE!!!
