The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

This movie is based on the legend of the Chicken Ranch, a notorious brothel in Texas that was forced to shut down after over 100 years in business due to the antics of a nosy tv reporter from Houston. This movie is truly entertaining, with excellent dance sequences, terrific music, and a awesome cast that includes Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds, and Dom Deluise.

I loved the Watchdog report on the Chicken Ranch, and when the Aggie Boys are dancing up a storm in the locker rooms. It's a classic Texas tale.
