A small farm town in Kentucky bands together to prevent the evil mayor and his capitalist cronies from taking over and turning their town into a shopping mall.
It all comes down to a bet – can the local village idiot, Dingus, beat an Olympic wrestling champion – Alekski “The Bear From Belarus” Cavalenko from Mother Russia in a wrestling match for the ages!
This is one helluva match-up.

“Surprisingly game film with earnest good humor and some laugh out loud moments. The performances are strong, the laughs easy and the morals tucked in among the action. Be prepared to chuckle along the way.”
AK, Montreal Gazette
“Laugh-out-loud funny. Dingus carries on the Lil Abner/Daisy Mae courtin’ and humor tradition in this fun, sweet film…”
Ralph Tribbey, DVD Release Report
“This is a delightful, fun and yet often touching comedy about a young man with a big heart, but little brains. I loved the characters, they are all colorful, funny and the humor is at times hilarious. I would say that if “Dumb and Dumber” and “Napoleon Dynamite” had a baby Dingus would certain be it!”
