Storyline

After Sweetiepie's husband, who is a trucker, got wounded in a shootout, she has to think up some way to pay the rates for the superliner. Together with a remote friend of her husband, Flatbed Annie (a trucker without a truck), she takes up trucking. What they all didn't know: there is cocaine hidden in the truck somewhere. And not only the bad guys are after it. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Annie Potts and Kim Darby play lady truckers.
4 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

An inexperienced lady trucker (Kim "True Grit" Darby) and an experienced lady trucker (Annie Potts) try to stay one step ahead of the repossessor and whoever else may be after them. They drive a Mack Superliner. Suppose it had a synchromesh transmission, but still nice to watch women drive big rigs. They pull a van and not a flatbed, though. Good for hauling citrus fruit. I thought the end of the movie, though representative of the fellowship of truckers, was kind of far-fetched. One of the last appearances of Arthur Godfrey and about the only movie appearance of Billy Carter. The movie shows the thrill and camaraderie of trucking. A couple good songs in the movie, too.
