The Last Round-Up of the Guacamole Queens is a deliciously funny Southern-fried comedy. The Verdeen cousins of Sweetgum, Texas – Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette – are up against the clock as they frantically attempt to produce the ultimate high school reunion before the old building is demolished. But they’ve got a bushel of obstacles to overcome before they can pull off a miracle. From an octogenarian love triangle to a malevolent hand puppet, Guacamole Queens is side splittingly hilarious from start to finish.
