Goofs

When they are at the football game, close up shots of the band were done earlier during the week and the field was dry. Long shots were done on an actual game on a rainy Saturday, so there are two colors of Astroturf being shown back and forth. See more »

Enjoyable comedy would make perfect late-night TV fare...
12 June 2008 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Unambitious, unassuming gem from the undervalued pile of movies over at Warner Bros. Director Richard T. Heffron and talented screenwriter Bill L. Norton concoct an easy-going scenario full of rascally characters and lively action in tale of a luckless musician, recently paroled yet back in trouble after assaulting a country-western singer who stole his song. In the lead, Peter Fonda isn't his usual hole-in-the-screen self (Heffron helps him loosen up and be a bit more likable), while Susan St. James is very fresh and funny as a music-biz insider who turns the convict into an anti-hero. Scruffy, charming picture was probably the perfect drive-in entry; it should play even better on the tube. *** from ****
