Stopping briefly in a small Texas town, an itinerant race car driver finds that his stock car, on a trailer behind his motor home, has just been quickly and expertly stripped. He chases down the miscreants, who turn out to be six orphan children.

They are charming rogues who are in turn charmed by him. Disliking their arrangement with the sheriff, they stow away with him, and he finds himself becoming a reluctant stepfather. Thanks to their enthusiasm and incredible mechanical know-how, he begins to make a name for himself on the racing circuit. But the sheriff doesn't take kindly to losing his extra income... Written by

The meaning and relevance of this movie's "Six Pack" title is that it is a play on words of its usual meaning which is the way beer and other drinks and beverages are packaged which is in half-a-dozen packages of cans or bottles.. There are six orphaned youngsters in this movie who befriend stock-car racer Kenny Rogers, hence the term "Six Pack". It is notable that Kenny Rogers's character's name is Brewster Baker and his shortened nickname is Brew, a reference to beer. See more »
The car driven by Baker's nemesis is a Dodge Mirada but is constantly (and incorrectly) referred to as a Buick. See more »

I just bet you do.

This is by far the best Kenny Rogers- Anthony Michael Hall collaboration ever in the history of movie making. It was just plain awesome. Just look at the equation Kenny Roger + Six Lovable Children = Pure Entertainment. If you have never seen this movie then you should go lay in the nearest interstate until a semi turns you into road gravy, or at least check it out. That ain't no lie.
