Dated but funBy JamesMc (134 reviews) from London , 23 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I must have watched this film a hundred times when I was a kid, but this was the first time I have seen it in years.
It is a bit dated, very eighties, but still a whole lot of fun, and if you don't cry when Dolly sings 'I Will Always Love You' to Burt Reynolds, you are clinically dead.
Dolly is the best Tart with a heart ever, running her brothel that is the centre of the community. Burt is great as the copper turning a blind eye. Dom DeLousise is hilarious as the sensationalist TV reporter who wants the Chicken Ranch closed down to further his own career, preaching truth and honesty while sticking a sock down his trousers.
However,if you are looking for smut, look elsewhere, because 'There's nothing Dirty Going on'

Slapstick sexism has been been such good fun!By Littlemiss_1979 (13 reviews) , 21 Jun 2013Well, it is what you'd expect really. A comedy caper/romcom/western with plenty of toplessness to boot. Dolly does pull out all the stops though and it is pretty hard to dislike her character. Tis film could have been a lot better, but also it could have been a lot lot lot worse...
A better musical you will not findBy Wurzel12 (6 reviews) , 22 Feb 2013For me this film has it all. Not only does it have humour, romance and a little bit of action it has the outstanding voice of Dolly Parton. Dolly and Burt seem so natural together I just wish it had gone on longer.
excellent filmBy cheesekake (1501 reviews) from uk , 01 Mar 2012film is really good considering the storyline. Good fun, and humour all round, and dolly parton is great in it too.
Good Clean Fun!By Chrisaljack (417 reviews) from Hellingly , 27 Dec 2011Do not let any of the reviews 'putting-down' this film put you off! The title is meant to be a 'come-on' but this comedy caper has Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton at their best! The Best Little W.... in Texas is light, good clean fun with some delightful Dolly Parton songs for good measure and has aged extremely well. It is at least twenty years since I saw it last and it was just as much fun this time round!
