Billy Jack Goes To Washington

1977, Movie, NR, 155 mins

Long, arduous, and sometimes agitating rip-off of MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON. In this case, credit is actually given to the original screenwriter (Sidney Buchman, from a story by Lewis R. Foster), and the producer is the son of the original director, Frank Capra. This is another remake that never should have happened. Laughlin is not Stewart (who starred in the original) or Buchman or Capra, Sr. He attempts to wear all of those hats and just misses on every account. He is a pretty fair actor, not a bad director, and a serviceable screenwriter. But when he attempts to do them all, something has to suffer. In this case, it's the movie. Laughlin is the naive senator...
