Another laugh-a-minute comedy from the Jones, Hope & Wooten team ...
Honky Tonk Hissy Fit is a whole heap of hilarity with a whole lot of heart
In this rollicking, hilarious comedy, the gang is back and life in their tiny town has gotten crazier than ever
Things seem to be looking up - the population has grown to seventeen mobile homes and now there's a weekend farmers’ market
But the rug is pulled out from under the residents yet again
It seems their vacation rental trailer has drawn unwanted attention from a mega-corporation in Austin
Suddenly the corporation is interested in Doublewide
Waaaay too interested
Mayor Joveeta Crumpler is the only one suspicious enough to sound the alarm
But no one is listening
Her mother, Caprice, is too self-involved with her “career” as a local celebrity to sense the growing threat
Or to even realize that grumpy old Haywood Sloggett is increasingly drawn to her
And Sloggett is fighting those romantic feelings tooth and nail
Caprice is also hell-bent on keeping her neighbor and rival, Big Ethel Satterwhite, from horning in on her domain - The Stagger Inn Bar
Big Ethel has her hands full trying to teach the town’s good-ol’-boy police chief, Baby Crumpler, how to dirty-dance for a countywide competition
But Baby’s got as much chance of winning as Georgia Dean Rudd has of not jinxing her relationship with Nash Sloggett - she’s twisting herself into knots trying to dodge his constant marriage proposals
And as the danger to the town grows, Joveeta can’t even count on the usually reliable and sweet health fanatic Lark Barken
Because she’s currently under the spell of a demon she’s only recently discovered - caffeine!
But as the tentacles of the Corporation envelop them all, can the citizens of this little Texas town put aside their problems and unite behind Joveeta to fight “the big guys” ?
By the triumphant finale you'll be throwing fits of laughter that’ll make your sides ache
