Philo Beddoe is an easy-going trucker and a great fist-fighter. With two friends - Orville, who promotes prize-fights for him, and Clyde, the orangutan he won on a bet - he roams the San Fernando Valley in search of cold beer, country music and the occasional punch-up. But he is floored himself by a dainty little country and western singer, who gives him the slip when she realizes he's getting too serious. Phil, Clyde and Orville set off in pursuit, pestered by bikers. Written by

The film's "Every Which Way But Loose" title song, sung by Eddie Rabbitt, was a catchy memorable tune, which in February 1979 topped Billboard Magazine's Hot Country Singles Chart for three weeks. The song's debut at No. #18 on this chart was the highest ever debut on the chart since it had begun in July 1973. The song also went to the No. #1 spot on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks Chart; No. #4 on the Canadian RPM Adult Contemporary Tracks Chart; No. #30 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart; and No. #26 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks Chart.

[the Black Widows have shown up at Philo's home, Ma Boggs is on the porch, they pull their bikes into her yard and Cholla pulls up on the porch]
Say, old lady, where's Philo Beddoe?
How the hell do I know? Get off my porch with that thing. Get off my property!
You're uh... you're not very hospitable.
Hospitable my ass. Get off my porch!
Very well, if you insist.
[Cholla chains his bike to a support on the front porch, pulling it down... bikers laugh, Ma pulls out a pump-action shotgun]

a truly classic film , which shows Clint in a different light and can truly act. very enjoyable family film, despite the fact that it is now 28 years old , the kids loved it. another generation now enjoying this funny film with the ape Clyde stealing most scenes. the fight scenes are very well choreographed, the film is fast moving and keeps you interested to see what happens.The film is highly recommended for family viewing , especially on a weekend. the music and songs will stick in your mind, especially the title song every which way but loose, which really goes hand in hand with the film and truly complements it. one definitely to watch.
