Storyline

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. He has no recourse to the law, for the corrupt local sheriff takes most of the proceeds of their thievery in exchange for not putting them in an orphanage. 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...

Terk: [to Brewster] I'd tell that little punk that he shouldn't be talking to me like that if I were you.
Brewster Baker: He's right, Swifty. Be polite, Mr. Logan here's a very sensitive man.

Brewster Baker: On second thought, I got a good mind to turn this little kid loose and let him just whip your ass, Terk!

Outstanding Movie!!
21 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hello,

I have sit here now for the past 20 minutes or so, while actually watching Six Pack, and I have written at least 4 different reviews on this movie, but I kept having to delete them and start over because i could just go on and on about how great and timeless this movie was and still is, even today. But after thinking about it over and over, i think I will just say that this movie is indeed a Timeless Classic, with an awesome cast and crew, and especially the little kids, who are just cute as a button (especially Little Harry).

I have come to the conclusion that with all that I can say about this movie, very positive reviews, I have now become almost speechless. So I will give the following review with heart and sincerity:

Watch This Movie!!!! It is funny, fun, and it'll touch your heart!!! But just watch it!! if you have Never seen this movie, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, and you owe yourself an apology! And if you have never seen it, go now; get off your duff and go rent this movie. Or find an internet movie site and rent it from there and watch it. This movie is Timeless, and I almost money-guarantee you that you will want to watch it again and again! I have No Idea why IMDb has given this outstanding movie only 5.2 stars, but it's evident that someone at IMDb doesn't know wonderful movies when they see them. Thanks for reading!!
