Not bad for a TV movie.
29 April 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

I remember this movie, but probably not too many other people do. Jeff Conaway was a country singer who was going to do a prison concert album like Johnny Cash did. Gary Sandy from WKRP in Cincinnati was a sidekick of his. Slim Pickens was his greedy manager. A couple of female prisoners kidnapped him in an escape from prison. They were hiding out in a Tennessee valley that was about to be flooded for a dam, and later there was kind of a showdown at a fairgrounds. I remember one of the female prisoners supposedly hot-wired a stolen police car, but I doubt that was really possible, because it had a steering column ignition switch. One thing in this movie: a police car somehow got a 55-gallon drum stuck underneath the middle of it, and it was driving with the drum under it.
