Vehicle for Judy Canova
I'd never heard of her before watching this movie, but Judy Canova was a pretty famous comedienne in the 1930s and 1940s. If you're curious about her, or if you have heard of her and happen to like her, Sis Hopkins shows off her talents like no other. She plays the same character as her decades-famous shtick: a hillbilly from the sticks with hidden talents. She comes to live with her wealthy, high-society relatives and is made fun of and looked down upon because of her uncouth manners and funny accent. Will she eventually find acceptance in her new surroundings, or will Sis Hopkins turn into a tearful drama?
I'm sure you can guess the answer after watching the first ten minutes. Most of the movie is incredibly silly, and the rest of it is predictable and trite. Judy sings everything from country tunes to opera to yodeling, but if you find her annoying, you probably won't like this movie. She's on the screen almost the entire time, so you'll be able to quickly find out if you'll like the movie or hate it.
