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 father figure. 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.

Trivia

The picture's promotional "Six Pack" title logo for movie posters and promo materials featured two black and white checkered race track flags extending symmetrically from the middle of each of the title's two words. The same font design and titling was also used for the movie's title display during the picture's opening credits roll, but did not feature the two flags superimposed there. See more »

Quotes

Swifty: Kick his ass, Brewster! Don't take that shit from this fungus faced toad sucker!
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.
[takes a few steps away and looks at Terk]
Brewster Baker: On second thought, I got a good mind to turn this little kid loose and let him just whip your ass, Terk!

love the kids
1 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Brewster Baker (Kenny Rogers) is a washed-out race car driver. His car parts get stolen. He chases after the thieves who drive their van off a bridge. Brewster is shocked to find the thieves are actually six kids. He saves the youngest Little Harry from the river. Heather/Breezy (Diane Lane) is the oldest of the orphaned siblings. They steal for corrupt Sheriff Big John (Barry Corbin) to stay together. Brewster is quickly arrested but the kids break him out. His girlfriend bar waitress Lilah (Erin Gray) pushes him to be a reluctant father figure and they become his diminutive pit crew.

Kenny Rogers is not the greatest actor but he's good enough here. I liked this a lot when I was a kid. The six pack is compelling and I really root for them. There's a young Diane Lane and an even younger Anthony Michael Hall. The story is sweet. The kids are all familiar with foul language and Swifty is the loudest. It's a family film of that era. It's also a movie that is always going to have a happy ending. In addition, there is plenty of race track action.
