ELBOW GREASE is a southern fried family dramedy based around Billy Barnes, a local underappreciated and overworked exterminator whose neglected and lonely wife Ellie seems to be awfully flirty with their annoying next door neighbor.  When Billy’s good-natured but trouble-making brother Randy comes for an extended visit to paint the town’s old water tower, all hell breaks loose!  Burt Reynolds co-stars in a hilarious turn as Billy and Randy’s wise-cracking Dad.  Fans of Eastbound and Down and Napoleon Dynamite will likely enjoy this film.  A hilarious scene of Randy in a full sized wrestling ring in a rematch against his old nemesis and big time used car salesman Crazy Cobb Robbins is worth the price of admission alone!  You may even leave the theater feeling slightly nostalgic.
