Time Out says

Reynolds at his best as a hillbilly conman (he robs gas stations with a water-pistol in hopefully swashbuckling imitation of his idol Errol Flynn) who finds himself steering a minor-league bunch of musicians to stardom in a Nashville considerably sleazier than Altman's. Quirky Deep South locations, fine '50s atmosphere (back street bars full of young hopefuls imitating Elvis), a wonderful interlude in which Furry Lewis sings 'Dirty Car Blues'. With all faults (chiefly Art Carney as a tiresome lawman-cum-hellfire preacher), a refreshingly irrepressible movie.
