Rhinestone (1984)
Directed by Bob Clark
Clark, who never met a genre he didn’t like, directed this twangy musical comedy the year after his perennial basic-cable classic A Christmas Story. Dolly Parton stars as a Tennessee songstress slumming it at a juke joint in the Big Apple. Eager to get out of her contract, she takes a bet that she can’t turn the next schlub that walks through the door into a country-western superstar. So, naturally, enter Sly Stallone. He’s much funnier than you’d ever expect him to be, camping it up with an infectious verve.  Any skeptics are strongly encouraged to google “Drinkenstein.” Zach Clark (Mar 1 at Nitehawk, part of its Country Brunchin')
