In 19th century Oklahoma two teen girls, fans of stories about outlaws, are on a quest to meat and join up with them. They find a shadow of a former gang and although disappointed still try to help them escape from a vigorous marshal.
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... Written by

About a year after this movie was made and released, a TV series pilot based on this movie was filmed starring Don Johnson in the Kenny Rogers role of Brewster Baker. The pilot failed and no TV series was made. 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 »
Not this time, boy. I'm in charge of my charges.
I want those kids, Sheriff.
I just bet you do.

On my way to Baker's car. Be there in a minute.
Well, I got an arrest warrant from the state of Texas, and extradition papers from the state of Georgia.
Pardon me, officer. Brewster, what made you take that wrong turn?
Chris, I don't think I took a wrong turn. I'll tell ya, this sheriff here is from the same hometown as my six pack,...

I remember catching 6-Pack when it first came out. I really don't remember if it was a made for TV movie or a theater movie. But what I do remember was that I was thoroughly entertained by this movie.
I really liked Kenny Roger's character and how he got shanghaied into becoming a surrogate step father for a larcenous family of orphans. If I'm not mistaken Erin Gray (Col. Wilma Dearing) of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century fame played his love interest.
This movie was certainly a "feel good" movie that also had some very funny scenes. If I can ever find it on DVD, I will certainly buy it. Another plus for this movie is that you get to see a very young Diane Lane. It is fun to see her very early in her career. If you want a film you watch with the family and not worry about a lot of blue humor, this one is for you.
