DJG / Bubba Ho-Tep

Bubba Ho-Tep * * * * 1/2
Directed by: Don Coscarelli
/ 2002

Can you think of another movie that involves ELVIS (Bruce Campbell)
and JFK (Ossie Davis) kicking King Tut butt in an East Texas nursing home? Add to this footage The Lone Ranger, nasty bugs the size of peanut butter and banana sandwiches, wild west dressed mummies, elderly cursing and reflections on life and old age...and you're watching a gem of a well-crafted and clever screenplay and film called "Bubba Ho-Tep". Not only is it fresh and comical, even comic book-like, it's oddly touching. -djg
