Time for your daily AOL /SlashControl fix of deliciously free movies! After Henry Fool and frightening Frogs, I'm going with my second choice for pick numero uno: The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Is it weird that this was one of my favorite flicks as a kid? My youthful bad taste not withstanding, I have no idea why or how I saw this flick a number of times as a youngin'. It was rated R after all. My best guess is that I saw 9 to 5, adored it, and somehow convinced one of my family members to let me rent and watch Dolly Parton's next film. In fact, I know I rented it a number of times. Oh, the perks of being an only child who can hide away with saucy Burt Reynolds movies...

Based on the play, the film stars Parton as Mona Stangley, a woman who operates a whorehouse that's been around for more than 100 years. Her illegal shenanigans are safe because she's canoodling the sheriff (Reynolds). But then a reporter (based on Marvin Zindler, played by Dom DeLuise) starts messing with her business and things get complicated. It might have a paltry 5.3/10 user rating on IMDb, but it not only has a great kitsch factor -- it also has Charles Durning as the Governor, in a role that won him an Oscar nomination. Need I write more?

Head to /SlashControl and get your free fix of Burt and Dolly.
