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...

Great Movie!
11 May 2004 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite movies. I can't believe how sensitive some people can be. Yes, "Swifty" has a foul mouth...but Kenny Rogers' character does reprimand him. There are some 'fight' scenes (which i would not describe as 'bloody')...turn the news on, you'll actually see body bags. And yes, Diane Lane does seduce a dirty old man...but she realizes the dangerous situation she put herself in...and i would add at 16/17 her character is much more mature as she has been raising her 5 younger brothers since the death of their parents.

This is a great movie. I watched it plenty of times as a child and if anything it has caused me to like the soundtrack (country songs performed by Kenny Rogers) not cursing up a storm, blood battling, whorish tendencies the previous reviewer would like you to think.

THIS IS A MOVIE...hence, Entertainment value. You want to watch race footage, put on Nascar.

No matter how many times I've watched this movie, I have yet to tire of it.
