A small town man inherits a significant fortune and takes his family to New York City. Urban culture shock takes the form of strange ways and oddball characters Based on Ring Lardner's novel "The Big Town."
The floating tree branch that hits Vic is the same one that Samuel watched float by hours earlier. (Samuel saw the branch when they got stuck in the river, Vic got hit when the truck was nearly unloaded of nearly 300 cases of beer.) See more »
A fun movie to watch... Should be called the lorry...
This movie about the struggles of a crew of three to get a lorry filled with a cargo of beer to it's final destination was a favorite late-night movie of my sister's (and mine). The story, at times, left something to be desired...but the acting was good, and the emotions of the characters really came through. (Imagine how you would feel if you were stuck delivering a truck full of beer to some remote village, and everything that could go wrong, did.) I gave it a ten. (Nostalgia probably played a part in that rating.) Definitely worth the watch... if you can find it, that is.
