We gave it a C+

It’s glorious, like an angel’s sparklin’ loogie.” I wouldn’t borrow that phrase to praise this entire film about redneck Ronnie (Cross), whose ”talent” for getting arrested attracts a British TV producer (Odenkirk). But then neither would its ”Mr. Show” stars/writers, who’ve publicly encouraged even the ravenous not to buy. The story is somewhat stale — ripping on reality TV is so 2000, when this movie was shot — but it does boast some genius kitsch (Mandy Patinkin rehearses a tearjerker from ”Ronnie Dobbs: The Musical”). EXTRAS A well-cut trailer makes you think Ronnie could’ve been an A. A few one-note alternate/deleted scenes remind you why it’s just a C+.
