He gives us a whole cast of hard-to believe characters in a plot that's preposterous. There's a white trash nymphomaniac I wouldn't use those words, but Ricci's cartoonish character seems to come from the era of God's Little Acre and Duel in the Sun , a boyfriend subject to panic attacks and a bitter old blues singer whose wife left because, she tells him: "I don't lerve you no mo'". Then mix and match in a gumbo of religion and tough love and a couple of near deaths and everyone's problems are magically solved and Sam no stranger to snakes can get his ol' Gibson out and go back to being a practising bluesman. This bizarre stew of lust and lord-have-mercy is barely an inch away from a parody of Erskine Caldwell and Tennessee Williams at their most lurid and the big surprise is that the talented Ricci, who spends a fair part of the film chained to a radiator in her scanties, would want this part. She gives the film a lot more than it deserves, as do Jackson and Justin Timberlake. The set-up might just have worked as comedy, but Brewer - who grew up in Memphis where much of it was shot and should know whereof he speaks - makes the film, whose title comes from a song by s bluesman Blind Lemon Jefferson, seem not just pre-PC but practically prehistoric in its attitudes.
